Stephen Mulhern wants Adele and Peter Kay to appear on the 'Britain's Got Talent' judging panel.
The 34-year-old TV presenter - who fronts ITV2 spin-off show 'Britain's Got More Talent' - thinks the 'Someone Like You' hitmaker and the comedian would be "exceptionally good" replacements for Michael McIntyre and David Hasselhoff.
He exclusively told BANG Showbiz: "If I was asked who I want on that panel, I would go for someone like Adele. She'd be an amazing choice in terms of the music side of things.
"But in terms of an entertainer I'd love Peter Kay to do it. I think he'd be exceptionally good. For me personally, I want a comedian or a magician to win the show, I don't necessarily want to see another singer to win next year."
Despite former 'X Factor' judges Cheryl Cole and Dannii Minogue being tipped to join the 'BGT' panel, Stephen doesn't think the ITV1 show would work with either of them on board, as the pair are too similar to current panellist Amanda Holden.
Speaking as he launched the Febreze 'breathe happy' campaign, Stephen said: "I don't know it would work with either of them actually. I know Dannii does 'Australia's Got Talent', she was on 'This Morning' recently and she hinted that she'd been spoken to about 'BGT'.
"Cheryl's a very good judge and we know that from 'X Factor'. But Cheryl is too close to Amanda in terms of Amanda's a West End performer and actress so she gives very good constructive criticism in terms of musical performance. I think Cheryl is quite close to that, as is Dannii. Have all three!"
Stephen Mulhern will be helping Febreze provide people with 'breathe happy' moments by hosting the first UK breathe happy experiment; from 26 - 29 October at Stratford City Westfield Shopping Centre. For more information, visit www.facebook.com./febrezeuk
