Britain's Got Talent judge Piers Morgan is reportedly set to replace veteran American TV host Larry King in a multi-million pound deal with CNN.

The former Daily Mirror editor is on the verge of signing a four-year contract to take over King's prime-time show in the autumn, The Daily Telegraph said.

According to the Telegraph, the alleged deal was worth £5.5m - but The Sun said Morgan could get as much as £10m in a three-year contract.

Morgan, 45, has become a popular celebrity in the United States as a judge on America's Got Talent.

CNN executives were also said to be impressed by his UK chat show Piers Morgan's Life Stories, in which he interviewed former prime minister Gordon Brown.

King, 76, has reigned over American television for decades, with the Larry King Show first airing in 1985.

But his ratings for the first three months of 2010 slumped to an all-time low of 771,000 viewers, down 43% in the past year, the Telegraph added.

Heading a prime-time show would leave Morgan too busy to continue judging Britain’s Got Talent.

An unnamed source told The Sun: "No matter how much Piers wants to stay on BGT, he just can't do it all, simple as that."
