Simon Cowell’s friend Sinitta reveals hopes to replace Louis Walsh amid X Factor snub

SIMON COWELL’S close friend and co-star Sinitta has revealed she is hoping to take over from Louis Walsh amid reports that the Irish star was snubbed from the judging panel on The X Factor: The Band.

Sinitta, 56, has shared her hopes of joining Simon Cowell and Nicole Scherzinger on The X Factor judging panel after making several guest appearances on the ITV show. The singer, who is close friends with the head judge, made the revelation while discussing her thoughts about his new concept of The X Factor: Celebrity, which debuted this year.

She said: “I was just trying to understand, I thought it was a good idea and I think Champions is a good idea as well, I just couldn’t imagine how it was going to be.”

Although the star praised the format of the live shows as “amazing”, she pointed out the judging panel has room for improvement and suggested she should take Louis Walsh’s place.

She added: “I think it does work except I think I should judge instead of Louis but that’s just me!

“Louis is like the comeback kid but he should just be a gentleman and give me his chair.”

When quizzed on whether she would like to take part in the singing competition herself, the So Macho hitmaker divulged: “I mean we could try that, but if I, by some miracle, managed to win, people would think it was a fix.

“Simon would be so irritated as well because he’d have to make my records again. It makes me want to do it now!

“I would really just love Louis’ chair to be honest and to be dancing with Nicole and swooning over the rugby players and having a laugh.”
