Megan tried out for 2009's BGT aged 16 as part of duo Harmony, while Piers was at the time a judge alongside Simon Cowell and Amanda Holden. Piers showed a clip of the audition during Megan's appearance on GMB, quipping:

'Sometimes talent spotters come in many guises. It was quite clear to me ten years ago when you appeared on Britain's Got Talent that you were always going to be a winner.'

While his fellow judges including Simon, who is now judging X Factor, hated the audition Piers is seen in the clip telling Megan and her pal: 'You two make me smile, you're great fun.'
