Lily Allen holds out for £1m over TV show

Singer Lily Allen has snubbed Piers Morgan's offer of appearing on his Life Stories series, unless he gives £1m to charity.

The star, who has had two miscarriages, told Morgan she wanted him to give the money to a stillbirth and neo-natal death charity that supports bereaved parents.

Writing on internet site Twitter, she said: "i'd do it for a million for SANDS. money, mouth??????????????????"

Morgan, whose guests on the ITV1 interview show have included Gordon Brown, Cheryl Cole and Simon Cowell, told Allen: "I will get ITV to make substantial five figure donation to your charity for the interview".

But Allen told him: "Those are my terms. I've got no interest in coming on your show, you've been asking me for years."

She revealed she had lost her second child in November and asked her two million followers on the social networking website to "say a little prayer".

She previously had a miscarriage when she was dating Chemical Brothers star Ed Simons in 2008.

Allen has released two best-selling albums – Alright, Still and It's Not Me, It's You – and a number of hit singles including The Fear and Smile.

Former Daily Mirror editor Morgan is about to launch a new chatshow, which sees him take over from CNN legend Larry King, in the United States.

He became the youngest editor at the News of the World before moving to the Daily Mirror as editor-in-chief in 1995.

Since his high-profile sacking from the tabloid daily in 2004, he has forged a lucrative career in television after striking up a friendship with entrepreneur and TV producer Simon Cowell.
