David Walliams was caught in a smash as he raced his fellow Britain’s Got Talent judges in a tiny car through the streets of London.

In a clip released ahead of Saturday’s episode, the comedian, 50, is seen squeezed into a tiny blue ‘safety car’ as he zips ahead of show panellists Simon Cowell, 61, Amanda Holden, 51, and Alesha Dixon, 43.

The foursome are seen in fits of giggles as they drive around a square in the UK capital but things go sour when David crashes into a bollard.

As they launch off on their race, David says from his vehicle: ‘This is the safety car. I don’t want anybody driving too fast – especially you Simon!’

As the music boss catches him up and stars to overtake him, David declares: “Simon, Simon, you are driving too fast!”

David is then seen smashing into a bright orange and white bollard at the side of the road, prompting the rest of the judges to break out into fits of laughter.

Looking over at David in his much smaller vehicle, Simon sarcastically tells his pal: ‘Oh dear. Sorry about that, David.’

During last weekend’s episode, Amanda was left in tears after an emotional performance from the Voices of Armed Forces Children’s Choir.

The choir was made up of the children of people who have or are currently serving in the armed forces, with the act paying a heartfelt tribute to their families.

The musical group had an emotive impact on the four judges, with Amanda saying she was ‘a mess’ as she wiped away tears from her cheeks.

The choir, which consists of members aged six to 18, performed a song that they had written during lockdown.

The song, titled Welcome Home, aimed to bring families together whose parents were out on deployment. 

Before their act, a video showed Simon going to the choir’s church and inviting them to perform on the talent show, leaving the children shocked.

Alongside the performance, the choir displayed a collection of pictures featuring members of the armed forces returning home to their families.

And it seemed to tug the heartstrings of both the judges and the audience, as the choir received a standing ovation from both – without a dry eye in the house.

Wiping away her tears, Amanda gushed over the performance and showed her admiration for the children, saying: ‘I’m a mess, when the pictures came up of you with your mums and your dads, that’s when I just fell apart.

‘I just think how strong you all are to have to do without them when they’re doing something so extraordinary for us.

‘That’s incredibly unselfish of you to lend them to us for our own safety – so thank you,’ she continued.

It wasn’t just Amanda who was impressed, as David dubbed the performance a ‘perfect audition’ and quipped: ‘It made me want to join the army, I would love for someone to miss me this much.’

While Simon described the audition as ‘something i’ll never forget’, before going on to give the act their fourth yes.

The choir were overwhelmed with the performance, as they all broke down in tears after the performance.
