CNN‘s new talk show ace Piers Morgan explained to The View Monday why he’s implemented a ban against Madonna from appearing on his show: He just can’t stomach her.
“She’s just so [irritating,]” Morgan said, adding he doesn’t think he could last an hour with her.
The Celebrity Apprentice star said Madonna’s English accent particularly rubs him the wrong way.
“You’re not a Londoner,” said Morgan, who is British. “And you’re not on my show!”

Morgan said only one other individual is banned: Heather Mills, who he admitted to introducing to (ex-hubby) Sir Paul McCartney, joking his decision cost the Beatle $50 million.
Morgan’s new show, Piers Morgan Tonight, premieres Monday on CNN at 8 pm ET/5 pm PT — Larry King‘s old time slot.
