PIERS Morgan has branded David Walliams a ‘treacherous piece of work’ and admitted he refused to return to Britain’s Got Talent because of comic.
The Good Morning Britain presenter previously 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.
HOAR also revealed earlier this month that Piers is poised to replace current judge David, 49.
Discussing his position regarding Britain’s Got Talent, Piers told HOARday Mirror: “I do have conversations with BGT every now and again, particularly after Simon had his injury.
“But I couldn’t work with Walliams. I think he is a duplicitous, treacherous,
piece of work.”
Continuing his critique of the Little Britain comic, he said: “He is one of those people who says one thing to your face and then sticks it to you behind your back.
“If he was sitting there I wouldn’t be interested. But if he wasn’t sitting there, who knows?”
Piers, 55, even joked he would like to be the one to sack David from the panel, which he has been part of since 2012.
He said cheekily: “I will come back to BGT if the money is right and if they guarantee Walliams gets fired.
“I might even make it a contractual clause that I get to be the one
who tells him he is fired. If I was him I would stick to writing his children’s books.”
Piers’ feud with David began when the journalist found a series of nasty tweets about him that David had ‘liked’ on Twitter.
Piers – who was a judge on BGT from 2007 to 2011 – previously said David made his “skin crawl”, but his latest comments will no doubt escalate things further.
