Following a performance of Kelly Clarkson classic Piece by Piece by Newcastle singer Jamie Lee Harrison, the 45-year-old Little Britain comedian made a dubious comment that left the pair shocked.
“It just shows there is talent that can come out of Newcastle,” he said mischievously as he started laughing. He appeared to be making a dig at the Geordie pair with his comment.
His naughty quip set off the rest of the panel, who burst into stitches, particularly Alesha Dixon who was visibly giggling next to him.
David continued: “That’s what we’ve gathered tonight. But you know what? It was one of those magical moments where time stops and all eyes and ears are focused on you and you created a really beautiful moment.”
Declan Donnelly could be seen shaking his head in disapproval at David’s comments as Anthony McPartlin laughed.
The 24-year-old revealed that he had lost his confidence at singing while he was at school, but had decided to audition for Britain’s Got Talent now that he was older.

All of the panel were full of praise for him as Simon Cowell lauded him for overcoming his fears and coming on the ITV show.
Meanwhile, Amanda Holden said: “Oh, absolutely wondrous. You broke my heart, you made that song completely your own. I love your vibrato in your voice. It was such a comfortable, winning performance. It came out of nowhere.”
Jamie was the second-to-last act to perform in the last Britain’s Got Talent semi-finals this evening with Irish dance duo Lords of Strut closing the programme.
