According to The Sun, the 31-year-old disliked her husband's "camp" persona – including his TV cross-dressing and his flirtations with Simon Cowell on Britain's Got Talent.A source told the publication: "She didn’t really understand the humour of it.""There were obviously lots of issues within their relationship."But it had become clear Lara didn’t like the constant talk about David being camp."She got tired of it being referenced all the time, especially when David seemed to play up to it in various photoshoots or TV sketches — or by flirting with Simon Cowell on Britain’s Got Talent."It was reported yesterday that David, 43, and Lara have agreed a trial separation after almost five years of marriage.It ran from 2003 to 2005, but there was a stage show of the series and various charity skits were made after it ended.
The 46-year-old has been in various roles since then, including in Rather You Than Me, Dinner for Schmucks (alongside Paul Rudd and Steve Carell) and Doctor Who.
He’s also a presenting favourite, after hosting a documentary on James Bond and one about comedy and disability and receiving rave reviews.
The X Factor judge recently whisked his partner, Lauren Silverman, and their son off to the warm Barbados to catch the rays before Christmas. ‘You wait in an anteroom for him, and there are all these female assistants running around.
Sinitta isn’t the only person who showed up on David’s radar: the author also admitted he is fascinated with Simon’s love of fame. I sit back and just watch the over-the-top way he does everything. Then he emerges in a white shirt, jeans and no socks.’ ‘I give him an idea for a BGT Christmas special, he then calls in an assistant and tells them the idea as if it was his, even though I’m still standing there,’ he claimed. He loves to turn up on the red carpet with his sunglasses and a huge crowd.
He’s certainly the wildcard of the BGT judges, and David Walliams is always getting into trouble with Simon.
