Stephen Mulhern tells fib to his boss Simon Cowell on live TV

Viewers were swift in proving the telly presenter's facts wrong!

BGT host Stephen Mulhern has been branded a liar by viewers.

The funny magician was playing a hilarious guessing game on Britain’s Got More Talent last night when he came a cropper with inquisitive viewers at home.

The point of the game was for the show’s judges Simon Cowell, Amanda Holden, David Walliams and Alesha Dixon to guess what was the most common question people Googled about them.

When it came to David’s turn, David and Simon reckoned the answer might be: “Is David Walliams… gay?”

But Stephen revealed that the answer was in fact: “Is David Walliams… dating Simon Cowell?”

The Little Britain star and shocked Simon burst into laughter and demanded to know if that really was the most common question asked about the funnyman.

Stephen said it was and informed them that it had actually been “verified” by experts.

David laughed and said: “When we’re lying in bed together tonight, we can Google the answer.”

And they were right to be suspicious, because viewers at home did their own research and discovered that Stephen was wrong or had been telling pork pies.

Several viewers shared screenshots of their Google search that revealed the true answers.

And, it turns out – if you’re interested – the most often asked questions about David are:

“Is David Walliams dead?”

“Is David Walliams single?”

“Is David Walliams writing a new book?”

“Is David Walliams in Stardust?”.

One swotty viewer said he had Googled all the presenters and said that NONE of the answers on BGMT were correct.

This was just another outrageous moment on Britain’s Got More Talent that had people posting all over social media.
