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.
