10 hours ago | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Amanda Holden made her This Morning debut today as she fills in for Holly Willoughby while the regular host takes maternity leave.

The 43-year-old Britain's Got Talent judge admitted to fellow presenter Phillip Schofield that she had "massive butterflies" at the start of the ITV show.

"I felt really wretchedly nervous yesterday and now I feel a little bit better," she said.

Schofield kicked off proceedings by reading out tweets from fans and viewers wishing Holden good luck, including one from Willoughby, to which Holden replied: "Thank you Holly, hope you've got your feet up at home!"

She pointed at her chest and asked Schofield: "My heart is pounding - can you see it?"

He then quipped: "You told me you've got three nipple covers on!"

When Holden joked whether such a subject was appropriate for morning TV, he exclaimed: "It's absolutely fine because I have too!"

The X Factor hopeful Lauren Platt has described Mel B's comment about her at the arena auditions as "very strange".

Platt wowed the judges in Saturday's (September 13) episode with her rendition of 'How Will I Know', prompting Mel to tell her: "I am so excited right now I could slap you."

"That was very, very strange!" Platt told Digital Spy today. "I'm glad she's expressing her excitement though, in one way or another.

"I couldn't have paid [the judges] to give me better comments to be honest. Cheryl was very, very complimentary. I loved it. I think she's really great, and she's been in my position and she knows what it's like to be a young girl in a talent competition."

Platt - who said she had performed as part of a choir in the West End when she was in Year 5 - admitted that the arena auditions were daunting, saying: »

Alan Carr vs Piers Morgan on Chatty Man: 'We're gonna be friends now'

12 September 2014 7:17 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Alan Carr and Piers Morgan have put water firmly under the bridge after years of snarky comments about each other online.

The Life Stories presenter appears on tonight's (September 12) Chatty Man, with the pair confronting each other over past burns and disses.

"You started it," Morgan pipes up. "You did an interview saying you wanted my job on Britain's Got Talent. That's like saying I want your job as an interviewer. I am available, obviously."

Carr fought back: "I said you were the most annoying man on telly - it got misquoted."

The comic then read out Morgan's previous description of him, saying: "He has not merely an irritating voice, he has quite possibly the most excruciatingly high pitched, whiny, helium-filled, nasal, repugnant voice in the history of mankind, with the possible exception of the Krankies."

Morgan replied: "I'm very sorry for any offence that caused. I was right, but »

Piers Morgan has proposed that George Clooney should play him in the upcoming movie about the News International phone hacking scandal.

Watch Piers Morgan discussing hacking, Britain's Got Talent and Jeremy Clarkson:

When asked who he would like to play him in the movie, Morgan told Digital Spy: "I hear Brad Pitt fancies it. Pitt would be the aesthetically correct person to play me.

Piers Morgan: 'I would never drive Jeremy Clarkson's grubby little cars'

12 September 2014 4:46 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Piers Morgan has made another cheeky dig at Jeremy Clarkson, insisting that he wouldn't ever appear on Top Gear because the cars aren't good enough for him.

Despite the duo calling a truce this summer on their famous rivalry, Morgan said that the likelihood of Clarkson appearing on his chat show Life Stories was "somewhere between Bob Hope and No Hope".

Watch Piers Morgan talking to Digital Spy about Clarkson, hacking and Britain's Got Talent:

When asked whether he would consider guesting on Top Gear, Morgan replied cheekily: "I would, but I don't drive reasonably priced cars."

He added that he would only take part if there was a one-off segment for "very expensive cars" so that he could ride around in his Aston Martin.

"I'm not driving around in one of [Jeremy's] grubby little cars," added Morgan.

The animosity between the pair dates back to Morgan's days as a tabloid editor, »
