1Bowie (David Bowie) and Lennon (John Lennon) were to me the greatest British rock stars of them all; a pair of uncompromising, ferociously charismatic and singularly individual characters who didn't give a damn what people thought of them.
2I get more excited about being around cricket legends than I ever do around Hollywood stars.
3[on the Australian convicted sex offender and former entertainer Rolf Harris] I interviewed Rolf Harris for my Life Stories show in 2011, and while never suspecting for a moment that he was a paedophile, there were odd clues to his darker side. Describing his self-confessed neglect of wife Alwen and daughter Bindi during periods of supposedly work-related depression, Harris welled up and told me: 'I remember my family saying they didn't know who I was. They said I was a total stranger. They had never seen me like this before. They had to walk around on tenterhooks. It was such a black period. It was like my life was over.' When I asked if he regretted his behaviour, he replied: 'Guilty on all counts, your honour.' As indeed he was.
4[on his criminal friend Andy Coulson] Having also experienced a few professional and personal crises, I've come to realise that the only true friends that you have in life are the 4am crowd. I don't mean the ones you get drunk with until 4am. I mean the ones you could call from anywhere in the world at 4am if you were in big trouble and know with absolute certainty that he or she would instantly jump out of bed and do whatever they could to help you. You won't have many that would do that. But the ones you do have will be the people who are your true friends. Andy's one of those for me, and vice versa.
5[on his friendship with convicted phone hacker Andy Coulson] At the toughest moment of a close friend's life, the correct response should be to simply turn my back on him and airbrush 25 years of shared fun, adventure, grief, career highs and lows, weddings and children? How absurd.
6I want to interview the most important people in the world and have everyone in America the next day going, 'Did you see that?'
7Let me know your views, good, bad and ugly. I've had it all.
8If I do get deported from America for wanting fewer gun murders, are there any other countries that will have me?
9Susan Boyle has come as the antidote to the recession. In one little old lady from Scotland we have the cure to all financial ills.
10Susan Boyle has never experienced anything like this and is like a frightened rabbit in headlights. She is beginning to realize her life will never be the same. But I feel very, very sorry for her.
11When the world was going through a pretty tough time and we were looking for a bit of inspiration, along came Susan Boyle. On behalf of the whole world - thank you Susan.
12[after hearing Susan Boyle's audition on Britain's Got Talent (2007)] I had never heard a more surprising, extraordinary voice come from someone so unexpected.
13[after hearing Susan Boyle's performance of "I Dreamed a Dream" on Britain's Got Talent (2007)] The biggest surprise I've had in three years of doing this show.
14[on Susan Boyle] She's gone from anonymity to being the most downloaded woman in history.
15[on Susan Boyle losing Britain's Got Talent (2007) in 2009] It might be a blessing in disguise that she didn't win.
16There is a certain advantage to the British accent. I do notice that Americans love it; they think the we Brits are smarter than perhaps we are. So I'm relying on that, definitely.
17[on his failed attempt to host an American talk show] Larry King is an iconic figure in the world of television interviewing. To take over from him is a huge honour. There is a natural reluctance to give it to a foreigner but I'd established myself on America's Got Talent (2006) and Celebrity Apprentice so I'm not an unknown quantity. I hope they'll see it's a fresh and new style for US TV. I'll be a bit cheekier than they're used to but not in a way that will alienate guests. I was quite mischievous with Condoleezza Rice and she loved it so much she booked herself to appear again on the show. You can have a bit of fun with US celebrities because of the British accent, which they find charming.
18[on banning Heather Mills from Piers Morgan Tonight (2011)] I'm guilt-ridden about introducing her to Paul McCartney. It was a moment of Cupid madness which cost Sir Paul $50 million, so the least I can do is ban her from the show.
19I miss the adrenalin of working in a newsroom when there's a massive breaking news story such as the Arizona shootings. Now I have this show I will still be involved with news stories like that. I've come full circle.
20Journalism is no longer just about the print medium and in 25 years' time newspapers will have died out. You're left with a new form of journalism which will be conducted through the prism of iPads and everything else. It will always be about content - journalists will always have work, just in a different format.
21Big Brother (2000) is about celebrating the talentless... Britain's Got Talent (2007) is 100 per cent about celebrating talent.
22[speaking in 2005 about the British Education Secretary] Why do we want someone like Ruth Kelly controlling our children? She's the scariest woman I've ever seen in politics.
23[on the height of Hollywood actors] Most of the men that sue in Hollywood are all about 5' 2". They wake up every day, know they're tiny and feel very angry about it, so they go out and sue people.
