David Walliams will not be attending today’s Britain’s Got Talent launch.

The judge is reportedly away on holiday with his family.

A BGT spokesman confirmed: “David will be not be attending the press launch as he will be away. This is a pre-existing engagement which was booked before the date of the launch was set.”

Reports in early March alleged that David and his model wife, Lara Stone, were “on a break”.

But neither Walliams nor Stone’s representatives have confirmed this.

The couple wed in 2010 and had their first child together – a boy called Alfred – in May 2013.

In an interview in the run-up to BGT starting, David revealed he stopped one audition to phone a friend – actress Sheridan Smith – after a magician said he wanted to cut her in half for his act.

Walliams said: “A gentleman came on stage called John, a magician. He was very entertaining and his dream woman was Sheridan Smith. He really wanted to saw Sheridan in half.

“Having worked with Sheridan on a play, I can understand what he was saying. We are very good pals so I phoned Sheridan and she spoke to John.

“I’m hoping that one day we can bring the two together and make a dream come true, at least for John.”

Britain’s Got Talent returns on Saturday (April 11) at 8pm on ITV.
