David Hasselhoff tried to ''chin'' Piers Morgan when the pair appeared on the judging panel of 'America's Got Talent', Amanda Holden has revealed
David Hasselhoff tried to "chin" Piers Morgan on 'America's Got Talent'.
'Britain's Got Talent' judge Amanda Holden - who is to be joined on the ITV1 show by the former 'Baywatch' hunk and British comedian Michael McIntyre - admitted it's probably a good job Piers Morgan has quit the series to launch his US chat show career.
She revealed: "Well I think the Hoff threatened to chin him! I think, in the past. But when they were first on 'America's Got Talent' together I think there was a bit of a feisty chat ... but then they made friends."
Despite David's "feisty" personality, Amanda thinks it's a great idea to have him on the panel, but will miss former judges Piers and Simon Cowell.
She added to ITV1's 'This Morning': "Simon is coming back for the live finals and the semis, but he will not be there for the auditions - although he'll be like big brother, he'll be watching from somewhere.
"I will obviously really miss the boys because there was a brilliant chemistry but I've been a massive fan of Michael since when I went to see him about four or five years ago, and the Hoff I just think is very funny. I always thought a yank on a panel in England trying to see English eccentricity would be a great idea."
