I hardly know what to make of this story!
Britain’s Got Talent bosses were apparently left spooked after ghostly happenings at a Newcastle audition.
Piers Morgan was hit by a mysterious flying rock coming from the direction of an empty stage and the theatre temperature dropped so low that he and fellow judges Amanda Holden and Simon Cowell had to get hot water bottles.
Hosts Ant and Dec were also unnerved by the events in the Newcastle theatre, where they once performed as lads.
A show insider told The Sun: “Piers felt something hit him in the head. He picked it up and it was a small rock.
“He asked if anyone threw something and the answer was ‘no’. It seemed to come from the stage area, where no one was. Then the room suddenly became really cold and you could see your breath. The judges asked for hot water bottles to keep their bums warm.”
Ant and Dec worked backstage at the Tyne Journal Theatre when they were youngsters and played munchkins in The Wizard Of Oz.
I’d like to see more details, but if Piers Morgan was struck by a rock it may have been thrown by anyone upset by their dismal performance being criticised I guess. Still, if i knew more about the incident I would comment, but this seems to come from an unattributed source, and I expect Piers Morgan is a bit busy to worry about answering my email!
