سيمون, 62, was shamed when a five-year-old called Charles was showcasing his knowledge of national banners.

The multi-millionaire, who has lived almost entirely in the US for two years, was challenged to a contest with the lad and shown a St George’s Cross.

هو قال: “Oh, I know that — it’s Switzerland.”

Simon’s response left the Britain’s Got Talent audience at the London Palladium in stitches and Walliams, 50, in disbelief.

The Cross of St George, the national emblem for 800 سنوات, is a red cross on white while the Swiss have a white cross on red.

سيمون, engaged to Lauren Silverman, 44, has spent most of his time in America recovering from an accident at his home in Malibu, كاليفورنيا.
