Conservative host Piers Morgan has offered Simon Cowell a deal: he will return to take David Walliam’s place on Britain’s Got Talent as long as his demands are met. He wants a truckload of money and he thinks he deserves head judge…not that anyone asked him.
Morgan has, of course, been a judge on both Britain’s Got Talent and America’s Got Talent, in the past. So, he definitely has experience. Of course no one said anything about replacing David Walliams and in fact they are shooting auditions now. Morgan says that bringing him on would boost the ratings. Doubtful. He said,
“I don’t think Simon Cowell could afford me. When I was a judge the ratings were 20 million, and they’re half that now. I’m doing the maths and it doesn’t look good for Simon! Simon, I’d be the new head judge if the money was right. If Simon made me an offer I couldn’t refuse I would, and frankly looking at the performance of David Walliams, that question should come sooner rather than later!”
Pump the breaks, Piers. I doubt that the ratings were higher back in the day because of you. Maybe in spite of you. I doubt Simon is interested in doing this. I mean, at least, I hope not.
