Piers Morgan worked as a gossip columnist for the Sun before going on to edit the News of the World and then the Daily Mirror, where he stayed until 2004 when he was sacked following his decision to publish photos of British soldiers apparently abusing Iraqi prisoners of war. Since then, he shot to fame as a judge on the top-rated show
America's Got Talent and was the first winner of
Celebrity Apprentice. His new book,
God Bless America: Misadventures of a Big Mouth Brit has just been published.
