Former TV editor Piers Morgan has signed a new three-year deal with 'America's Got Talent'
Piers Morgan has signed a three-year deal with 'America's Got Talent'.
The former newspaper editor has confirmed plans to stay with the reality show for the foreseeable future, and will juggle his time there with his new chat show on CNN.
According to The Sun newspaper, he confirmed his continuing role - where he stars alongside Sharon Osbourne and Howie Mandel - on the show to American talk show host Jay Leno.
However, it is unknown whether he will continue to work on 'Britain's Got Talent' with music mogul Simon Cowell and actress Amanda Holden.
Piers is having an exceptional year career wise, having just signed a £5.5 million deal to replace Larry King's legendary CNN talk show.
The four-year contract will reportedly see him work for 30 weeks of the year - meaning he is expected to move to the US permanently.
It has been speculated that Piers' new deal will mean he has to give up 'Britain's Got Talent', regardless of how much he enjoys the show.
