Caroline Flack’s fans have urged David Walliams to apologise for his ‘cheap’ joke’ about her at the National Television Awards.

The Britain’s Got Talent presenter compared Caroline to the Hedgehog from The Masked Singer during the awards ceremony last month.

When the character appeared onstage, David said: ‘It’s so nice to see Caroline Flack back on TV.’

His remark was met with boos from the audience.

At the time, Caroline had been keeping a low profile after stepping down as Love Island host following her alleged altercation with boyfriend Lewis Burton.

In the wake of the 40-year-old’s suicide on Saturday, thousands of Twitter users demanded that David apologise for the jibe.

Why did a member of the BGT panel deem it acceptable to make jokes at her expense? Apologise David Walliams!’ another added.

‘David Walliams needs to issue a public apology about his NTA swipe at Caroline Flack,’ a third posted.

Others rushed to David’s defence however, claiming that ‘hounding’ the comedian wasn’t helpful to anyone.

‘The internet trolls who hounded Caroline Flack to death have now headed over to David Walliams to blame and hound him,’ one said.

Another argued: ‘The irony of everyone publicly shaming David Walliams now because he made an innocent joke about Caroline Flack. He’s probably feeling awful about it.

‘What are you going to say if he turns up dead in a couple of weeks because of it? Hypocrites.’
