Comic Relief viewers felt “uncomfortable” after a skit with David Walliams on Friday’s show.
The evening saw a host of celebrities help raise an incredible £31million for charity with comedy specials and musical performances.
However, when David, 51, slipped into a skin-tight leather outfit as he pretended to audition for Eurovision, viewers weren’t impressed at all.
The segment saw stars from Bucks Fizz to Gordon Ramsay try their luck in front of judges Graham Norton, Lulu and last year’s winner Sam Ryder.
And David chose to dance to Eye Of The Tiger in his tight clothes before covering himself in confetti.

Taking to Twitter, one wrote: ‘David Walliams on my screen I’m so uncomfortable’.
While another, referring to his scandal-ridden exit from BGT, wrote: ‘When his audition is over we should all be whispering obscenities about him.’
A third said: ‘#RedNoseDay why was David Walliams in it?? Read bedroom best friends.
It comes after David left the ITV show ahead of its 2023 series and was replaced by former judge Strictly Bruno Tonioli, 67.
It came after he was forced to apologize for describing an elderly contestant as a ‘c***’ and making despicable sexual remarks about a female contestant.
The comments, held in January 2020 during auditions at the London Palladium, were picked up by the show’s microphones and revealed in December 2022.
During the audition, an older performer engaged in banter with the judges in which he made a joke about Walliams. After the audition, the pensioner left, at which point Walliams allegedly called him a “c***” three times.
In another instance, after a contestant auditioning on the same show walked off stage, Walliams remarked, “She’s like the kinda annoying girl you meet in the pub who thinks you want to fuck them, but you don’t. don’t… It’s the last thing on your mind, but she’s like, ‘Yeah, I bet she is!’

Simon, 63, was not so forthcoming when asked about his fellow judge in an interview with The Daily Star.
Asked about David’s conduct, Simon replied: “Can’t we go? If it does not bother you.’
He also insisted that the judges weren’t the key to the show’s success, thinking, “I think for me the most important thing – and I had this conversation the other day. It’s always a question of talent.
“If you don’t have great talent, you don’t have a show,” he said. “That’s all I care about.”
