Simon Cowell, 61, is being “secretive” about his plans for Britain’s Got Talent, says his pal Sinitta Malone, after the music mogul was spotted out on a walk with his former colleague Piers Morgan, 55. The outspoken journalist stepped down as host of Good Morning Britain last month, after he had slammed comments made by Meghan Markle to Oprah Winfrey about her mental health during a landmark interview alongside husband Prince Harry.

He was being a bit secretive


Sinitta told Entertainment Daily: “I saw the pictures of him walking with Piers and I did speak to him just before he went back to America.

“I said, ‘Oh, are you getting Piers to do BGT?’ And he said,’You’ll see darling, we’ll talk about it.’ He was being a bit secretive.”

However, if Simon decided to bring back Piers to the talent show, it could cause tension between him and his other friend Prince Harry.

Sinitta continued: “I don’t know what’s going to happen now with the scandal with Harry, Meghan and Piers.

“The thing is, Simon is also good friends with Prince Harry so I honestly don’t know. I would imagine it would be quite tricky because he’s friends with both of them.”

Piers quit GMB last month after refusing to apologise on air for blasting Meghan’s interview with Oprah.

However, sources have claimed since leaving his six-year tenure on the ITV show Piers has been “bombarded” with offers for work.

One insider told The Sun that Piers is in talks to work with Simon on a new TV project.

The source said: “During their three-hour walk, Piers and Simon discussed the possibility of working together, and the hope is that Piers will come on board. 

“The format needs shaking up, and obviously Piers has form with this.”

Piers was one of the original Britain’s Got Talent judges alongside Simon and Amanda Holden when the show began in 2007.

He previously boasted the show had 20 million viewers before he left the show back in 2010 to focus on his CNN show in the US, Piers Morgan Live.

Last year on Good Morning Britain, Piers joked with his former co-host Susanna Reid that he would be returning to the talent show.

Susanna started: “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 laughed: “No one else has been talking about it, but apparently Piers is ‘this’ close to a return.”

Taking the opportunity to boast about his huge ratings during the first four series of BGT, Piers responded: “Well the ratings were 20 million 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 year.
