Simon Cowell has confirmed that he's changing the format of Britain's Got Talent, but he refused to confirm if he'd ever work with Piers Morgan again.

The music mogul used to sit on the judging panel with Piers on his hit ITV talent show BGT, as well as its American sibling show, America's Got Talent.

The ex-Good Morning Britain anchor even said he "wouldn't have had a career in America" without Simon as he put him on AGT when nobody had heard of him.

However, Simon and Piers have since gone their separate ways, leaving many wondering if the judging duo will ever reunite in front of the cameras again.

Speaking exclusively to Daily Star at the Together For Short Lives Ball on Tuesday (November 9), Simon finally spoke about his former BGT pal Piers again, but he didn't have much to say.

When asked if he would ever work with Piers again, Simon left a long pause before he finally replied: "I'm not even going there."

Fans of Piers would be forgiven for getting excited though, because the broadcaster told the Mirror that he recently met up with Simon and they "chatted over a few options" in terms of future TV projects.

Although Simon refused to comment on working with Piers again, he did reveal plenty about his latest TV shows.

Simon said: "Yeah, yeah. Yeah, we got an interesting line-up, we've still got more people to announce.

"Yeah, a little bit," he responded.

He continued: "We’ve had some good ideas. I mean, we just had some good ideas because we had to pull the show at the very, very last moment.

"And because we were going to shoot this in January this year – and that was before the second variant came along."
