Walliams happy to miss showbiz bashes to sit in with wife

David Walliams loves his unexciting marriage life.

The British comic - who married supermodel Lara Stone in a star-studded ceremony earlier this year - admitted he would much rather spend a quiet night at home watching TV with his wife than attend showbiz parties.

He said: "If you are with someone you adore, you're happy to just spend time together. You don't have to be doing something really exciting all the time.”

David revealed the pair’s favourite programme is Simon Cowell’s pop star search show 'The X Factor' and said they never miss an episode.

He said: “We love watching ‘The X Factor’. If she's away I have to wait until she's back before I can watch it, which is a shame because I already know who has been kicked out. But we love it."

The ‘Little Britain’ star also spoke about his Dutch wife’s homemaking tendencies and her fondness for British food.

He said in an interview with The Sun newspaper: "It's a lovely thing to fall in love, to come back and feel like you've got a home.

"I would be at work filming and my wife would be saying: 'What time are you home because I want to know what time to put the shepherd's pie on?'

"I never thought I'd have that. An international supermodel who can make a great shepherd's pie."
