Piers Morgan has revealed he's in talks with Simon Cowell to work on new TV shows together in Los Angeles.

The outspoken TV star, 56, dramatically quit GMB in March this year following his explosive comments in reaction to Meghan Markle's interview with Oprah Winfrey.

Piers stormed off set following a fiery showdown with weatherman Alex Beresford and later quit the ITV daytime programme after ITV bosses asked him to apologise for his comments on the Duchess of Sussex speaking out about her mental health.

Months after his exit, ITV are yet to permanently replace Piers – with Bill Turnbull and Alastair Campbell temporarily stepping in to fill Piers' former seat.

It appears Piers is not worried about landing another job either as he explained to The Sun Online that he met up with his pal Simon, 61, about possible opportunities.

"I saw Simon Cowell recently, and of course he got me my first big break in America," he explained. "We walked for three hours.

"I got terrible blisters but I didn’t dare tell him because it felt like he was going to keep going until one of us surrendered."

Piers went on to hint he could return to Los Angeles as he added: "We talked about a few opportunities – I would like to work with him again."

Record executive and entrepreneur Simon helped the TV presenter land his first big break in the US by giving him the role of judge on America's Got Talent in 2006

He later brought Piers on to do the same job on Britain's Got Talent one year later.

Four years later the TV host was replaced by comedian Michael McIntyre and Simon was later joined by Alesha Dixon, David Walliams and Amanda Holden.

It seems Piers has got a flurry of job offers lined up since his exit from Good Morning Britain though as he told the publication "a third-party" put out the feelers to see if he would consider returning.

“I would seriously consider [going back] if I could rip it all up, and do it my way. If I could produce it as well as present," he said.

The TV personality added that the had "no doubt" he could bring the show's ratings up, but wasn't sure ITV bosses would allow him to do it his way.

“I was hired to give very strong, honestly held opinions, which I did.

"But in the end I was asked to apologise for a genuinely held opinion," he said.
