Britain’s Got Talent viewers found themselves doing a double-take during Sunday’s episode as David Walliams appeared to be in two places at once.

After a two-year hiatus, the wild and wacky annual talent series returned this weekend, with judges Simon Cowell, Amanda Holden, Alesha Dixon, and David welcoming a fresh set of hopefuls.

During last night’s episode, pensioner Joy Weir was cutting some serious shapes on the stage, and naturally, the 50-year-old funnyman busted a groove alongside her.

However, attentive viewers noticed the Little Britain star was up on stage and sitting alongside his fellow judges at the same time.

After the editing error was spotted by one, several fans later questioned whether David was gifted with the ability to clone himself.

‘Didn’t know David had a twin #BGT … David in his seat and David on the stage,’ one person tweeted.

‘Brilliant editing from the #BGT team, David up onstage and David also sat in his seat, at the same time!’ another quipped.

Technical blunders aside, David delivered the first ‘golden moment’ of the series, a new segment where each judge surprises an unsuspecting act, nominated without their knowledge, and invites them to audition at the London Palladium.

Aneeshwar Kunchala, seven, was the first contestant to be surprised as Walliams turned up dressed as a panda at his school in Warrington, Cheshire to ask him on to the show.

Saturday’s long-awaited launch, which nabbed 6.1million viewers, saw 32-year-old Loren Allred, the original singer of the track Never Enough from the 2018 musical film The Greatest Showman, awarded Amanda Holden’s golden buzzer after performing the song.

While Simon pressed the coveted button for comedian Axel Blake in last night’s show.

‘A comedy superstar is born tonight. You made it all seem so effortless and you’ve got a wonderful, so likeable personality,’ he said. has reached out to BGT reps for comment.

Britain’s Got Talent returns on Saturday at 8pm on ITV.
