A spokesperson for the ITV show said David Walliams’ future as a judge on Britain’s Got Talent was “very predictable”.
t appeared after The Sun reported that the comedian would be leaving the show after 10 years as a judge, first joining the jury in 2012.
Walliams recently apologized for making “disrespectful comments” about the contestants during a break from filming the popular show.
But a BGT spokesman said that no final decision had been made on the 2023 evaluation lineup.
“The jury for Britain’s Got Talent 2023 will be announced in due course,” the spokesperson said in a statement to the PA news agency.
“There is still a lot of information on whether David will be on the show next year or not.
“However, no decision has been made yet.”
Walliams was on the show’s original jury alongside Simon Cowell, Amanda Holden and Alesha Dixon.
PA also understands that because the pre-jury auditions won’t begin for another two months, no one has been signed to the show at the moment.
Walliam’s apology, issued earlier this month, comes after the comedian allegedly recorded derogatory remarks and sexually explicit comments about participants auditioning for the show at London Palladium in January 2020.
According to a leaked recording seen by the Guardian, it was suggested that Walliams called an older performer “c***” three times while he was out of earshot, after an unsuccessful audition.

During his audition, the contestant gave a lighthearted talk to the judges in which he mocked Walliams, it was reported.
The recording also shows other sexually explicit comments were made after a female contestant walked off the stage.
In a statement, Walliams said: “I would like to apologize to those to whom I made disrespectful comments during a break from filming for UK’s Got Talent 2020.
“These are private conversations and – like most conversations with friends – were never intended to be shared. However, I apologize.”
The Guardian reported that lawyers for Walliams and Thames TV, the production company of Britain’s Got Talent, argued that the comments were part of a private conversation that was never intended to be broadcast.
In a statement, Thames TV said: “Despite being involved in a private conversation nearly three years ago, the language used was inappropriate.
“Although it’s a private matter, those involved were spoken to and reminded of their responsibilities and the show’s expectations for future professional conduct.”
His comments were recorded using a microphone used to record discussion among the judges, including Simon Cowell, Alesha Dixon and Amanda Holden.
In a statement, ITV said: “We do not condone the language outlined in these allegations and we have spoken to the producers of British Talent Search.
“The responsibility of care for all participants in any of our programs is always paramount, and we have procedures and guidelines that apply to all of our production partners. .”
The Guardian reported that Walliams’ comments were the only instance of derogatory remarks about contestants in the three episodes that were reviewed.
