SIMON Cowell is in a “tricky position” after Piers Morgan and Sharon Osbourne’s explosive TV exits over Meghan Markle, his ex Sinitta has claimed.
His two pals sensationally quit their respective shows after becoming embroiled in a racism storm earlier this month following Meghan and Prince Harry’s bombshell Oprah interview.
Piers, 55, stormed off Good Morning Britain and later quit the programme after causing shockwaves by claiming that he didn’t believe the Duchess’ accusations of racism in Buckingham Palace, or her suicidal thoughts.
And 68-year-old Sharon dramatically left The Talk after she clashed with her co-star Sheryl Underwood by defending Piers on the US show.
Sinitta, 52, believes that their mutual friend Simon, 61, is now in a difficult position having worked with both TV personalities in the past.
The music mogul hired Piers to be a judge on America’s Got Talent in 2006, and then to join him on the Britain’s Got Talent panel the following year until 2010.
Meanwhile, Sharon was a judge on singing competition The X Factor between 2008 and 2018 – but Sinitta thinks that Simon will be unable to have either star back in the future.
Admitting that it will be a tough situation for the “loyal” star, she explained “I think Simon would be in a difficult position because he won’t stand for and he doesn’t support any form of racism.
“I think it could be tricky for him if he were planning to work with them.”
Sinitta concluded to Metro: “I know it will be hard because he wants to stand up for what he believes in, but he’s also a very loyal friend.”

Piers had previously shared his dream of returning to the BGT panel after leaving Good Morning Britain, but that was over before it really began as we confirmed that all four current judges are signed to come back in the next series.
A source told us: “All four judges will be back this year, so it’s business as usual on BGT. If it’s not broken, don’t fix it.
“The format is still a great one, and that involves all four judges, including David.”
Just days before Piers’ explosive stint on GMB, he was spotted taking a walk with his old friend Simon through London, catching up with the star while he puffed on a cigarette.
