Britain’s Got Talent judge David Walliams was left horrified to learn he owed fellow star Simon Cowell a grand, thanks to prankster Stephen Mulhern.
On the sister show to the series on ITV2, Britain’s Got More Talent, Stephen introduced Simon to a new game, but there was a twist.
Stephen challenged the music mogul not to say the number 17, before setting up a scenario that would force him to repeat this number.
In turn, Simon decided to play the prank on his fellow judge David, except he upped the stakes.
It kicked off as Stephen asked Simon a series of mathematical sums, with Simon successfully avoiding repeating the number 17.
But when Stephen asked him what 10 minus three was and Simon said “seven”, he was baffled when Stephen made it seem as though he had lost.
Simon was quick to correct him, saying: “But you said 17,” only to realise Stephen was pulling his leg, causing him to say the number when he wasn’t supposed to.
When he then tried it out on David, he shook things up and bet David £1,000 he wouldn’t say the number.
It wasn’t long before David too fell for the trick, with Simon and Stephen jumping around to celebrate the win.
It’s then that it dawned on David he had agreed to pay him a grand if he lost the bet, unaware what he was letting himself in for.
He was far from impressed with being set up, with Simon then shouting at him: “You owe me a grand.”
David then hilariously responded: “'I haven't got it on me, but I'll give it you, cause you need more money don't you!”
Britain’s Got Talent airs next Saturday at 8pm on ITV, with Britain’s Got More Talent following straight after on ITV2.
