Elsewhere, David was recently reported to have quit Britain’s Got Talent ahead of its 2023 series.
His future on BGT remains in doubt after he described an elderly contestant as a ‘c***’ and made vile sexual remarks about a woman who was also competing on the show.
These comments were made during auditions at London Palladium in January 2020 and were captured on the microphones of the programme. They were then revealed last month.
Both the production company Thames and broadcaster ITV were left in dismay at his return for the 2023 series.
An older performer engaged with the judges during the audition and made a joke about David. After the audition, the pensioner left, at which point David is said to have called him a ‘c***’ three times.
In another instance, after a female contestant auditioning on the same show had walked off stage, he remarked: ‘She’s like the slightly boring girl you meet in the pub that thinks you want to f*** them, but you don’t… It’s the last thing on your mind, but she’s like, “Yep, I bet you do!” ’
David, who along with his fellow judges Simon Cowell, Amanda Holden and Alesha Dixon was in talks about returning for a tenth series, is ‘under the microscope’, with some senior staff saying he should be instantly axed.

When asked directly if she was a member of ‘Team David,’ she replied: “Of course, I am team David.”

David was asked cryptically if he would be on the 2023 BGT panel.
He also insisted the judges weren’t the key to the success of the show, musing: ‘I think for me, the most important thing – and I had this conversation the other day. It’s always about talent.
He said, “If you don’t have great talent you don’t have a show.” “That’s all that I care about.
Alesha Dixon, Britain’s Got Talent’s remaining judge, has yet not commented on the news.
