Morgan to grill Cowell in TV interview

Piers Morgan is to grill his 'Britain's Got Talent' boss Simon Cowell in a TV interview.

The former newspaper editor will take on the music mogul in a prime-time interrogation for his TV chat show 'Piers Morgan’s Life Stories' – which will be screened next month.

The 44-year-old star has warned Simon no topic will be off limits during their chat – which has already been dubbed a "clash of the egos" by ITV producers.

According to Britain’s Daily Star newspaper, Piers is preparing to quiz the 50-year-old multi-millionaire on his latest girlfriend Mezhgan Hussainy – the ‘American Idol’ make-up artist he is rumoured to have got engaged to, on why he still hasn’t settled down, the constant gay rumours, what he really thinks about Cheryl Cole, how much money he earns and his fashion sense.

Piers and Simon have a habit of launching verbal attacks on each other, and are regularly shown bickering when they work together on the judging panel of the ITV1 talent show.

Describing his colleague, Piers has previously joked: "His teeth can blind a herd of elephants from two miles when he smiles and his haircut is the worst on God's earth."

And Simon retaliated: "His ego becomes ever more inflated every year".
