Piers Morgan has a savage dig at BGT judges as he boasts about 20m viewers before he left and fuels rumours he'll return

PIERS Morgan boasted Britain's Got Talent got 20million viewers before he left insavage dig about his former co-stars.

The 55-year-old fuelled rumours he's making an epic return to the ITV talent show ten years since quitting as a judge.

On today's Good Morning Britain, Susanna Reid said: "He's launching a takeover of every single ITV programme.

"He won't rest until he's back on the BGT judging panel."

Piers replied: "Well, I can't talk about those rumours, which I've been fuelling myself.

Susanna joked: "No one else has been talking about it, but apparently Piers is 'this' close to a return."

Seizing the opportunity to show off about his huge ratings on the first four series of BGT, Piers added: "Well the ratings were 20m when I was doing it, I'm just putting that out there.

"I'm just saying the others are still there, I'm the only one who has left."

Piers revealed he had been asked by BGT bosses to return to the ITV talent competition after Simon Cowell broke his back and was unable to film the semi-finals last month.

But he turned down the music mogul, saying he refused to work with judge David Walliams as he slammed him as a "treacherous piece of work".

Instead he's poised to replace David, 49, when he quits – or is axed – from the show.

Piers was one of the original BGT judges alongside Simon and Amanda Holden.

Since leaving, David and Alesha Dixon have joined the panel.
