Former newspaper editor Piers Morgan got in a ''mood'' when Louis Walsh replaced Simon Cowell on 'Britain's Got Talent' and was jokingly named the ''head judge''
Piers Morgan got in a "mood" when Louis Walsh appeared on 'Britain's Got Talent'.
The former newspaper editor was apparently "livid" after the boyband manager was jokingly given a badge declaring him the "head judge" when he filled in for music mogul Simon Cowell when he was off ill with the flu.
Stephen Mulhern - who presents ITV2's 'Britain's Got More Talent' after the main show - told Now magazine: "Piers was in a mood and we couldn't figure out why - it turned out it was because I'd given Louis a badge saying 'head judge'. Piers was genuinely livid, but was soon all smiles when he got the badge."
Piers was not the only disgruntled member of the judging panel.
Fellow judge Amanda Holden was "repulsed" when Paul Hunn performed on stage by burping - even though she had done a "massive belch herself" shortly before.
Stephen explained: "It was so funny that Amanda was so repulsed by the belching act Paul Hunn, because backstage she did a massive belch herself. Classic!"
