Sharon Osbourne and Paul OGrady are set to battle it out for the vacant judges spot on Britains Got Talent after Piers Morgan sensationally announced he was quitting.
Morgan, who has been with the show since it began a few years ago, has decided to move full-time to America after landing a huge TV deal.
The latest deal will see the 45-year-old rake in £12m as he prepares to take over from chat host Larry King on CNN.
It is now thought that Sharon or Paul could take his judging spot on the show next to Amanda Holden and Simon Cowell.
The pair are both in with a chance. Osbourne would make a much-anticipated return to a judging panel after her exit from the X Factor and OGrady has already hinted at his desire to be there.
It is also uncertain whether Simon will be making an appearance on the next series of BGT, after rumours that his interest in the show had started to flag.
Morgan said of the news: Sadly, I can now confirm that I will have to quit BGT, as I will be seconded in New York when the auditions are filmed next year.
