Piers Morgan tipped to make BGT return after being ‘approached several times’

Piers was a judge on the show for four seasons

Piers Morgan was once tipped to make a spectacular return to BGT – which is on tonight (May 26).

The outspoken TV star was a judge on the show between 2007 and 2010. And a return to Britain’s Got Talent could be on the cards in the future…

Piers Morgan to return to Britain’s Got Talent?

Piers was a judge on Britain’s Got Talent for four years between 2006 and 2010. He was also a judge on the US version of the show between 2006 and 2011.

However, he quit both to focus on his CNN show, Piers Morgan Live.

In 2020, Piers revealed that BGT bosses had asked him on numerous occasions to return – however, he didn’t want to do it without Simon.

“I was approached several times to go back to Britain’s Got Talent when Simon Cowell got injured,” he told OK! at the time.

“That would have been quite fun, but I’d rather do it with him.”

Bookies tip Piers Morgan to return to Britain’s Got Talent

Last month, Instant Casino revealed their odds for Piers to return to the show.

They currently have the 59-year-old at 6/1 to return to the show next year.

They also have him at 3/1 to return to the show in 2026 or later.

“Piers Morgan is a polarising character and very opinionated. We all know he loves to not do the norm and do things that spark conversation and debate online/ across socials. It would I think, bring viewers back,” PR expert Rochelle White told the Daily Star.

“Piers Morgan’s return to Britain’s Got Talent would be sure to cause conversation,” Dom Aldworth, Head of Brand Marketing at Slingo said.

“He is capable of captivating audiences and ruffling feathers in equal measure. This would be great for headlines and social media engagement, both of which follow wherever he goes,” he then added.

However, he confessed it could be “risky”.
