Amanda Holden, 48, is good friends with Good Morning Britain host Piers Morgan, 54, but the pair previously had a rocky relationship before their time together on Britain’s Got Talent. Back in 2000, Piers exposed Amanda’s affair with Neil Morrissey, 57, while she was married to Les Dennis, 65. In a recent episode of Shopping wth Keith Lemon, 46, Amanda reflected on the moment, telling Keith Piers turned her life “upside down”. The conversation began when Keith quizzed Amanda about the guest list of a party she was attending.
When Keith asked who was attending, she replied: “Angelia Griffin, who I’ve known for like 20 odd years.
“Lisa Faulker [and] Piers Morgan will come,” she added.
“I know Piers Morgan… you’re good friends,” Keith responded.
“I love Piers,” Amanda added before joking: “I’m on my own though aren’t I.”
Keith then said to the judge: “I read that you didn’t like him and then became friends with him.”
Amanda replied: “Because he turned my life upside down when he was an editor of a newspaper.”
