Piers Morgan has revealed what it will take to get him back as a judge on Britain’s Got Talent.

With this year’s BGT now in full swing, former judge Morgan is dropping hints about a potential return to the talent show, and has revealed on social media exactly what TV bosses have to do to win him back.

Yesterday a fan asked the Good Morning Britain host: “mate how much would it take to get you back on #BGT? Get rid of Walliams. I’ll pay.”

Morgan’s response was typically cheeky, taking a swipe at Simon Cowell: “£5m + use of Cowell’s Bentley.”

It isn’t the first time he has dropped hints about a possible return. On Good Morning Britain, he voiced his opinion on the current show and made comments about how low numbers are compared to when he was a judge. He said: “When were the highest ratings for Britain’s Got Talent in it’s.. how many series now, 13?‘

“Oh I remember, it’s when I was on it. 20.3 million people watched the Susan Boyle final, it’s about half that now.

“But Simon, I’m available to boost those ratings. If you wanna get a bit of the old GMB magic, just write a big cheque baby and I’ll be there.”

Former Daily Mirror editor as humble as ever, there.

Morgan was a judge on the show from its inception in 2007, where he sat on the panel alongside Cowell, and Amanda Holden, up until the fourth series in 2010. Since then it has had a host of stars judging, with the current line up consisting of comedian David Walliams, and talent show professional Alesha Dixon, who sit alongside original hosts Cowell and Holden.
