Piers Morgan is in his element in his 1 hour life stories show. He asks questions that many people want answered. If that were not true we wouldn't have so many supermarket tabloids! As a former editor of The Sun, News of the World and the Daily Mirror, from which he was fired, he was involved in digging into celebrity private lives and making them more down to earth by showing they are human.
I personally love Piers' style of asking questions. He doesn't seem to care whether the person he's asking the question of likes the question or him or not. His goal is to get the question answered one way or another.
In this series Piers spends an hour with people who are mostly well known in England, although having said that he has interviewed celebrities that are known all over the world, such as Sir Elton John, Richard Branson, Sharon Osbourne and Simon Cowell. I would say many tune in to see some of their beloved celebrities and sports people from their childhood. I certainly watched the Barbara Windsor episode with glee as I remembered growing up watching her in the "Carry On" films.
I believe that Piers is the only one to have made Simon Cowell weep a tear on camera and that must take some doing! The interviews are fun, interesting and not really shocking. I love the combination of Piers interviewing with video's of relatives and friends dotted throughout the hour. In some ways it sort of reminds me of "This is your Life" except Piers is not parading a group of people out to meet the celebrity, they are talking on video.
A thoroughly enjoyable series that gives me a little more insight into some of my favorite celebrities.
