James Corden and Peter Kay are both in the running to replace Piers Morgan as a judge on 'Britain's Got Talent' if he decides to quit
James Corden and Peter Kay are both in the running to replace Piers Morgan on 'Britain's Got Talent'.
The former newspaper editor is set to leave his judging role on the series after being announced as Larry's King's replacement on his late night CNN talk show.
Show boss Simon Cowell is big fan of James - who shot to fame in sitcom 'Gavin and Stacey' - and thinks he has what it takes to fill Piers' shoes.
A source said: "James is up for doing it. And Simon thinks he has the charisma and humour to carry the panel."
'Britain's Got More Talent' presenter Stephen Mulhern has revealed comedian Peter is in with a chance of joining Amanda Holden and Simon on the judging panel.
He said: "Peter would be fantastic. The show's about all types of entertainers and someone like him on the judging panel would really spice it up."
Piers signed a contract worth a reputed $8.4 million to take over from Larry this week and afterwards admitted it was unlikely he would be able to continue to appear on 'Britain's Got Talent' and 'America's Got Talent' as well.
Speaking about his future on the two talent shows, he said: "Obviously some things are going to have to give."
Piers will take over the show in January as part of a wider shake-up at CNN.
