Sinitta and Simon Cowell

Former pop star Sinitta has revealed she would love Mariah Carey and drag queen RuPaul to replace Dannii Minogue on 'The X Factor' when she's pregnant

Sinitta wants Mariah Carey on the 'X Factor' judging panel.

The former pop star - who works closely with ex-boyfriend Simon Cowell and his contestants on the singing show - would love to be considered for a bigger role on the programme when Dannii Minogue is on maternity leave and hopes the 'Obsessed' singer and drag queen RuPaul are involved too.

She told BANG Shiowbiz: "I'd love to have Mariah Carey or RuPaul - that'd be fabulous. Of course, not forgetting myself."

However, the 41-year-old star also believes heavily-tipped former Spice Girls star Mel B would be good for the show.

She said: "I have been hearing Mel B mentioned a lot, and I like her, so it would be great to see her on the panel - it would certainly spice things up a bit!"

The 'Toy Boy' hitmaker also admitted she is looking for a younger boyfriend now she is single again.

She said: "I'd love to be a cougar. Don't forget, it was me who coined the phrase 'toy boy'. I certainly wouldn't rule it out."
