Piers Morgan says he would return to Britain’s Got Talent for £5m and use of Simon Cowell’s supercar


PIERS Morgan has made two outrageous demands to Britain’s Got Talent bosses if they want him back on the show – and we can’t see either of them happening.

The 54-year-old star has insisted he would return to the panel, which he left in 2010, if handed £5 million and use of Simon Cowell’s car.

He was replying to a Twitter follower who asked him: “Mate how much would it take to get you back on BGT? Get rid of Walliams. I’ll pay.”

Piers replied simply: “£5m + use of Cowell’s Bentley.”

The Good Morning Britain host was one of the original panellists on the ITV show, alongside Simon and Amanda Holden at the start of the series in 2007.

He stayed until 2010, when he quit after signing a deal to host a show on news channel CNN for a reported £12 million.

The morning telly star has insisted he was an integral part of the show’s success before – saying he would “boost ratings” if he returned.

He asked Susanna Reid: “When were the highest ratings for Britain’s Got Talent?

“Oh I remember, it’s when I was on it – 20.3 million people watched the Susan Boyle final, it’s about half that now.

“Simon, I’m available to boost those ratings. If you wanna get a bit of the old GMB magic, just write a big cheque baby and I’ll be there.”

With Simon opening the cheque book to pay Robbie Williams and wife Ayda Field a reported £10 million to appear on X Factor, it’s clear big money is possible.

Don’t hold your breath though, Piers.
