Piers Morgan’s To Star In Britain’s Got No Driving Talent


Britain’s Got Talent judge Piers Morgan has said he deserved a “God damn good thrashing from the courts” after being fined for speeding in Brighton.

The 45-year-old was caught by a fixed speed camera in Preston Road on 13 November doing 51mph in a 30mph zone. It happened after he had judged a so called talent contest at a school in the city.

He was convicted on Tuesday at Brighton Magistrates’ Court, fined £666 and had six points added to his licence. He was also ordered to pay £58 costs for being a smug bastard and after pleading guilty by post as his head was too big to get in the court room.

School contest

Mr Morgan had appeared at the independent, all-girls Roedean School alongside newsreader Katie Derham. In a statement he said: “I was judging a charity show called Roedean’s Got Talent and guess my blood was up after being surrounded by so many ladies. I just wanted to get home as I hadn’t had the chance to look at myself in a full length mirror all day.

A Sussex Police spokesman said: “The vehicle he was driving was doing 51mph in a 30mph zone, above our threshold for issuing a fixed penalty notice. The spokesman confirmed it was only by good fortune that an office wasn’t around to issue the notice in person or they may have still been standing at the side of the road now. We do not get paid enough in this job as it is but listening to Mr Morgan would have been the straw that may have broke the camels back.

Rumours of a spin off driving version of the incident, “Britain’s Got No Driving Talent” may be in the pipeline. However, it is not quite certain who will present the show. Due to the size of the ego the presenter would need to fill Piers Morgan’s boots it could be sidelined for some time to come an industry insider stated.
