SIMON Cowell was humiliated by David Walliams when he could not recognise the English flag at BGT auditions.
The Little Britain comic yelled at his fellow judge: “You idiot. What country are we in now? England.”
西蒙, 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.
他说: “哦, 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 年, is a red cross on white while the Swiss have a white cross on red.
西蒙, engaged to Lauren Silverman, 44, has spent most of his time in America recovering from an accident at his home in Malibu, 加利福尼亚州.
He received months of treatment for a spinal injury after coming off an electric motorcycle 在五月, 2020 but has recovered.
Simon returned to the judging panel on Sunday for the first round of auditions for the new series this year of BGT.
