PIERS Morgan has admitted he was “terrified” by serial killer Bernard Giles who left viewers “chilled” by how polite he was in the ITV show about his murders.
The presenter’s series Confessions of a Serial Killer returned tonight with killer Bernard who admits to murdering five female hitch-hikers in cold blood in 1973.

As he engaged with fans watching the show, Piers was asked: “Is this the most terrified you’ve felt whilst interviewing a serial killer?”
He replied: “Yes. His demeanour was very scary” and later went on to tell Bernard he was “unsettled” by the interview.
Giles was just 20 years old when he began his murderous rampage.
He was working as an electrician and did not have a criminal record.

Giles – who is now 65 – avoided the death penalty by agreeing to confess to all five murders, but he will die in Brevard County high security prison in Florida.
Over a frenzied three-month period in the early 1970s, he embarked on a killing spree of unimaginable horror in Titusville, Florida.
His victims were all hitchhikers whom he picked up and drove at gunpoint to remote orange groves where he sexually abused and shot them.
They were Paula Hamric, a 22-year-old mother-of-two, Nancy Gerry, 18, Carolyn Bennett, 17, Sharon Wimer and Krista Melton, both just 14.
Viewers praised the documentary as “the best yet” from Piers as they were left chilled by the episode.
