BGT’s Alesha Dixon and David Walliams ‘row’ over ‘inappropriate’ Little Britain

Britain's Got Talent babe Alesha Dixon has reportedly clashed with co-star David Walliams over his controversial series Little Britain, according to Mail Online.

The TV judge reportedly couldn't resist taking a swipe at her co-star during filming of the hit ITV series.

A source alleged: "When the artist who Alesha had backed got through she basically turned to David and said, 'Well that's payback for all your inappropriate Little Britain antics.'

"It was quite catty, although Alesha later insisted she was only joking. But David was stunned.

"Obviously he is not racist or homophobic, or anything-phobic in the slightest — he was upset."

The insider added to Mail Online: "Words were exchanged, and the rest of filming was pretty awkward."

Daily Star Online has contacted representatives of Alesha and David for comment.

Despite the reported clash the duo are believed to have made up and moved on from the comment.

Earlier this year both Netflix and Britbox removed Little Britain from their online libraries over concerns it was racially offensive.

Taking to Twitter at the time, David said: "Matt [Lucas] and I have both spoken publicly in recent years of our regret that we played characters of other races.

"Once again we want to make it clear that it was wrong & we are very sorry."

Before the backlash reports claim that Netflix were considering commissioning a new series of the BBC sketch show.

A source told The Daily Star: "Netflix bosses were really keen to make a new series of Little Britain.

"The plan was to give Matt and David even more license to be controversial.

"In the current climate, Netflix can't be seen to be championing offensive comedy.

"The chances of any revival at this stage are slim-to-none."

Britain's Got Talent airs tonight on ITV at 8pm
