Strictly Come Dancing producers have been impressed with Piers Morgan’s passionate interest in the show after his spirited defence of Good Morning Britain co-presenter Charlotte Hawkins.
They have decided to replace Shirley Ballas with Morgan as a new judge.
“My darlings, I am so excited that Piers’s unique blend of wisdom, compassion and cute bottom will lend such value to the role,” said Bruno Tonioli.
“I intend to enter the BBC studios and demonstrate that this dreadful woman did not know her cha-cha from her chihuahua when I take over her role,” said Morgan.
“Just because I have no experience does not mean that I am not an expert in the area.”
