David Walliams was slammed by Britain’s Got Talent fans for telling a sexy all-female Dutch dance/magic troupe that their act was “one for the dads”.
Viewers hit out at the judge after Angel Inc., from the Netherlands, wowed the panel with their sultry and powerful performance.
David said: “This is one for dads, isn’t it. It was incredible.”
At that point, both Alesha Dixon and Amanda Holden interjected, adding: “And mummies!”
David continued: “The magic tricks were great, the dancing was great. This is the Pussycat Dolls of magic.”
But Alesha put the comedian in his place, telling the group: “I have to say, I’m sorry, this is not just for dads.
“This is for everyone because girls will be watching you and rooting you on.
“It’s so lovely to see a big group of girls here on stage. That makes me proud to be a woman.”
Many fans agreed with Alesha and criticised David’s comments on Twitter.
That was such a stupid comment from David Walliams! #BGT

Angels Inc. got four yeses from the judges, with Amanda telling them: “It’s something we’ve never seen before and you’re a force of good and we love you.”
Simon Cowell added: “This show is about finding a star and I think you’ve got that potential.”
