David Walliams is back on our screens as Britain’s Got Talent reaches the semi-finals. David is arguably best known for appearing alongside Matt Lucas as the comedy duo behind Little Britain. But are the pair still friends?
Are David Walliams and Matt Lucas still friends?
David and Matt were said to have gone their separate ways after their friendship became strained in 2011.
Over the years the pair have opened up on why they went their separate ways.
In Matt’s 2017 autobiography Little Me, he spoke of how the pair had started to disagree on the smallest of things while on their Little Britain Tour.

David also spoke out on the break down of their friendship while promoting his autobiography Camp David.
Talking on Radio 4 in 2012, David said: “We’re very different people and probably want different things and had different working methods.
“Well, it’s over for the time being. Whether it’s over forever, I don’t know.”
The comedy duo were seen to have put their differences aside in 2019 as they reunited.
David shared their first appearance together in a decade with his followers on Twitter.
He tweeted: “I met George Dawes”, referencing the character Matt plays in Shooting Stars.
The pair are now said to be on good terms with Matt confessing he and David message “each other pretty much every day.”
Talking on Capital Breakfast, Matt said: “We send those kind of funny viral gags to each other that you know we all send to our friends.”

Matt has also previously spoken of his friendship with David to the Big Issue in 2017.
He said: “When I first met David [Walliams] I really looked up to him. And not just because he was so tall.
“He was so charismatic and funny and confident. He wasn’t just funny, he was funny in his own, original way.
“There were shades of Frankie Howerd, but he really had his own thing going, his way of talking and moving.
“I wanted to be funny, but I didn’t know how to do that in a way that wasn’t derivative.
“If I did an impression, it would be an impression of someone else’s impression.
“But by the time we were writing Little Britain, some of David’s unique way of thinking had rubbed off.
“We’d known each other a decade. We could finish each other’s sentences and thoughts. So we felt as if we were writing with one voice.”
Britain’s Got Talent continues tonight on ITV at 8pm.
