David Walliams and Matt Lucas are one of TV's greatest double acts, and they're finally back together.

Britain's Got Talent judge David amazed his fans by tweeting a photo of him with his former comedy partner.

The pair looked happy as they posed together in the heartwarming photo, with David tweeting "I met George Dawes!", in reference to Matt's famous Shooting Stars character.

Many of David's fans have since responded by keeping their fingers crossed that some kind of TV project may be in the works.

The duo became household names thanks to their comedy sketch series Little Britain in the early 2000s, creating characters like Vicky Pollard and Daffyd Thomas.

Matt Lucas and David Walliams feud - what happened?

The pair are said to have fallen out twice, with the latest feud occuring back in 2011.

Matt explained in his autobiography that their friendship soured in 2005 during their Little Britain Live tour.

He claimed that regular rows at the time led to a fight backstage one night.

Matt said they were "often at loggerheads", and arguments began over small issues, such as facial hair and what sort of chocolate to have backstage.

David also said in 2017: "We'e very different people and probably want different things and had different working methods.

"It's over for the time being. Whether it’s over forever I don’t know."
