David Walliams has reportedly signed on to become a judge on Britain's Got Talent.

The comedian and actor is believed to have agreed to a £250,000 two-year deal with the ITV talent show, and will join the other judges in the auditions next week.

A source told the Sunday Mirror: "David can't wait to be a judge - it's right up his street.

"He's always been a big fan of BGT and will enjoy embracing the more eccentric side of the show.

"Producers are especially happy they've managed to get him signed up for two years. He's going to be a great asset and will give the show a completely new lease of life."

Simon Coweel confirmed recently that he would return as a judge on the next series, while Amanda Holden is also set to return.

Former X Factor judge Dannii Minogue is said to be in advanced talks with the show.
