Piers Morgan Quits ‘America’s Got Talent’

Piers Morgan has finally thrown in the star-spangled towel on America’s Got Talent.

He says the last six years on the show have “been a blastâ€? – but it’s all getting too much for the little love. “I found the juggling to my surprise more difficult than I first thought. It’s harder than it looks!â€? he said.

The ex-Fleet Street hack has experienced mixed reviews for his interview show in the US, which attracts huge names but generally involve Morgan prodding celebs until they blub. He might be leaving AGT to focus on his own show, but in true British style Morgan thanked Simon Cowell for his help and support.

The news will comes as yet another body blow to high-waisted mogul and his SyCo production team, who have already lost two members of the UK judging panel on Britain’s Got Talent and are slowly watching X Factor UK go down the toilet.

Amanda Holden has been campaigning for a Cheryl shaped replacement on BGT, saying that she “would love to have another girl on the panelâ€?, but with Cheryl and Simon’s history, that might not work out so well. Perhaps Piers would consider making a UK comeback. Let’s hope not.
