Piers Morgan challenges X Factor’s Simon Cowell to Twitter war!
Piers Morgan has thrown down the gauntlet to fellow former Britain’s Got Talent host Simon Cowell by challenging him to a twitter follower face-off for charity.
The CNN presenter was inspired to start the challenge after Irish bookie Paddy Power offered him 15/8 that he will have more followers than Simon Cowell by the end of this year. He took the challenge and told Cowell to put his money where his mouth is and take the reverse bet.
The bookie has offered them each a 500 pounds sterling charity bet to motivate them, although judging by Piers’ twitter feed, he doesn’t need much motivation and thinks it is in the bag.
Paddy Power said: “The game is now on for the both of them. Piers is already ahead by 750,000 odd followers, so it will be a bit of an uphill struggle. But I can’t believe Simon or his loyal fan base will let Piers win this one.”
