Piers Morgan has blasted rivals Graham Norton and Jonathan Ross' interview skills, saying only he could interview people for hours at a time.
The former Daily Mirror editor, known for making his guests cry on ITV show Life Stories, rated retired host Michael Parkinson for being able to switch between comedy and interview.
Morgan boasted: "I'm the only person who sits down with people on TV for two or three hours to truncate to a one-hour show. So I think I'm almost in a category of my own."
The 48-year-old told the Radio Times: "I can't compete with Graham Norton for the comedy he brings and I think he's got a terrific show. Or Jonathan Ross. Or Alan Carr. They're all entertainers and comedians, really.
"They're not any of them particularly great interviewers. I don't think they profess to be. Parky could do both."
Coronation Street legend Julie Goodyear said she regrets her short-lived return to the soap to revive Bet Lynch because it was like being on "a conveyor belt".
The 71-year-old returned to the show in 2002, but lasted little over a fortnight because she struggled to cope with the changes in the workload.
In an interview for Piers Morgan's Life Stories, Goodyear claimed she had not been informed about how the demands of filming had altered since she had left the show seven years earlier.
The actress said: "When I walked in, it was like being on a conveyor belt. We'd always had rehearsal. We'd always had make-up and costume and everything. I had about 27 Rovers scenes and we started at the end."
Piers Morgan's Life Stories: Julie Goodyear is on ITV tonight at 9pm.

– Jay Carney, White House spokesman
The White House responds to all petitions that cross the threshold and we will respond to this one.
In the meantime, it is worth remembering that the freedom of expression is a bedrock principle in our democracy.
The statement came as CNN aired Morgan's fiery interview with pro-gun ownership activist Alex Jones, the man who co-created the petition.
