Piers has got a new job. He's off to America to be the 'Nasty Brit' judging the show America's Got Talent - surely a role he was made for? And with unprecedented access to people, places and parties on both sides of the pond, he'll get the inside scoop on the world of celebrity Stateside.
So what could possibly go wrong? Well, it's not all plain sailing. Piers finds himself snubbed by the paparazzi and subjected to national ridicule by Alan Sugar.
As well as foolishly embarking on a visit to the Playboy Mansion with his girlfriend he also becomes one of the only people to fall off the 'idiot-proof' Segway (George Bush fell off one too).
Somehow though, Piers still manages to get invited to all the best parties.
Perhaps because he keeps being mistaken for David Cameron?
From chinwags with Naomi Campbell to a cigar-smoking session with Arnold Schwarzenegger; hilarious tete-a-tetes with everyone from Boris Johnson to Cheryl Cole; and, many bizarre encounters with the likes of Paris Hilton, Tony Blair and Jay-Z, Piers is his usual candid, honest, loudmouth self as he lifts the lid on Tinsel Town.
With the background cries of 'Please don't embarrass us Dad!' from his sons, the Big Mouth Brit embarks on his hilarious American adventure, and suffers just a few mishaps along the way.

Review by LARA335
I haven't read 'The Mirror', and I don't watch 'Britain's got an X-factor Apprentice', so not quite sure why Piers seems to be universally reviled and why he should appear to enjoy this.But from the diaries - undoubtedly judiciously amended and edited - he comes across as an energetic, enthusiast. Highly sociable, and enjoying being part of the in-crowd of celeb-land and politics. And I thoroughly enjoyed his fearlessness and bounce. Effortless to read and full of disloyal gossip. Brilliant.
