For old time’s sake…

During the PR wheeler-and-dealing over the Britney book, it became a dilemma as to where to place the first exclusive interview – Today show or Access Hollywood.

As emails went back and forth between producers and PR, it emerged that my old boss Piers Morgan had landed the stand-in presenter’s job for Kathie Lee on Today’s mid-morning segment – the same week as the book’s media launch.

When I shared this information with the PR, her face dropped. “You can’t do an interview with your ex-editor,” she said, “he’ll screw you live on air”.

Maybe this is why we ended up opting for Access Hollywood. Piers did a grand job on Today, continuing his remarkable ascent in America, and I couldn’t help but ask him how the interview would have fared in theory….

“I’d have screwed you,” he said, “just for old time’s sake.”
