8 most gross Bear Grylls moments that will haunt your nightmares

9 September 2015 10:00 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Bear Grylls is having a bit of a moment. Not only has he been off running around the Alaskan wilderness with someone called Barack Obama, but it's just emerged that he made £3.3m last year from his merchandise (you can buy everything from Bear Grylls knives to protein shakes to parachutes, apparently).

Now he's gone and said that he wants to be the new David Attenborough - except with more pee-drinking, presumably. And that's the rub: Bear Grylls does loads of really, really disgusting things...

1. He gave himself an enema

"There is a way of using it to gain life-giving fluids, but only as a last resort: I'm going to give myself an enema." Bear, love, you're on television - that does not count as a 'last resort'. And also we really don't want to watch you sticking a pipe up your bum. As he grimaced and popped the tube where the sun don't shine, »

Piers Morgan: 'I'd never put myself through Life Stories, I only trust myself'

25 August 2015 4:13 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Piers Morgan has grilled everyone from Gordon Brown to... Tony Blackburn on Life Stories, but he'd never let anyone interview him in the same manner.

The controversial broadcaster told BT TV that he would make himself look like a fool if he ever got the chance to interview himself in some futuristic nightmare.

"The only person I would trust is myself," said Morgan. "And even then, I don't think I'd trust myself. I'd get carried away interviewing myself and make myself look like an idiot. I'd never put myself through what I put other people through!"

He continued: "I just don't really like emoting in public. It's just not my thing. I'm not alone – some people just don't like doing it.

"A lot of famous people do quite like emoting, or are prepared to take the risk. I just wouldn't want to do that and put myself in that position »

Piers Morgan mocks Jeremy Clarkson's new show deal: 'I didn't know it was Amazon Past Your Prime'

10 August 2015 6:49 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Piers Morgan has suggested that Jeremy Clarkson's fame will "rapidly diminish" with his new Amazon Prime show.

The former Top Gear host's contract with the BBC was not renewed earlier this year after hitting a producer, but he later signed a deal for a new Amazon series with long-time co-stars James May and Richard Hammond.

Speaking about the new deal while promoting the latest series of Piers Morgan's Life Stories, Morgan quipped to Digital Spy: "I thought it was Amazon Prime, not Amazon Past Your Prime."

But he continued: "I think it will do very well for Amazon Prime. What they'll find, the three of them, is that their own recognition level and fame in this country will be rapidly diminished because they won't have the big audience.

Noel Gallagher has revealed that he turned down offers for The X Factor and I'm a Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here!.

The former Oasis member added that he rejected the opportunity to participate in Strictly Come Dancing, in the process ridiculing the show.

"I've been asked to go into the jungle... and twice for The X Factor," he told The Sun.

"Some f**ker saw I'd left Oasis, and thought I'd be unemployed. So I was even asked to do Strictly Come Dancing, which made me laugh the loudest.

"Me? Dance? And who gives a s**t about ballroom dancing?"

Gallagher also recalled being invited for Piers Morgan's Life Stories, before insisting that the only TV he will accept are interviews to promote his upcoming album Chasing Yesterday.

"[I've] been asked to do Piers Morgan's Life Stories, but not only would I not shed a tear, I'd call him a c**t, »
