James Corden is reportedly being lined up to replace Piers Morgan as a judge on Britain's Got Talent.
According to the News of the World, the Gavin & Stacey star impressed Simon Cowell when he performed his World Cup song 'Shout' on the talent show earlier this year, and is now in advanced talks to join the panel.
A source said: "James is up for doing it. And Simon thinks he has the charisma and humour to carry the panel, especially if Simon leaves the show as well.
"Britain's Got Talent is perfect for him as it only takes up a small part of his year. He'll still be able to do other projects."
The insider added that judge Amanda Holden will return to the show next year, saying: "She got several reassuring phone calls from the bosses insisting they want her back."
It was recently announced that Morgan will replace Larry King at CNN, while Cowell will only join the panel at the semi-finals stage of the competition. (DigitalSpy)
Your thoughts? I think this is brilliant news and would add a great comedy side to the programme.
