Former Sugababes singer Keisha Buchanan wants to be an 'X Factor' judge and thinks she and Simon Cowell would work well together

Keisha Buchanan wants to be an 'X Factor' judge.

The former Sugababes singer says she would love to follow in the footsteps of her friend and fellow popstar Cheryl Cole by appearing on the judging panel on the ITV1 talent show, alongside music mogul Simon Cowell and Louis Walsh.

She told the Daily Star newspaper: "I'd love to work on 'The X Factor'. Me and Simon go way back. We get on great."

There is currently a vacant position on the panel as regular judge Dannii Minogue is on maternity leave and won't return until the judges' house stage of the competition.

Until then, one-off judges are being asked to appear in the audition stages with Geri Halliwell and Natalie Imbruglia already taking up the offer.

Other stars set to showcase their skills as a talent show judge include Katy Perry and Pixie Lott.

However, Dannii's sister, Kylie Minogue, has already turned down the opportunity as she didn't want to be accused of treading on her sibling's toes.
