Sinitta has revealed Sir Richard Branson is her top choice to join the judging panel of 'The X Factor'
Sinitta wants Sir Richard Branson to join the judging panel of 'The X Factor'.
The 'So Macho' hitmaker - who has accompanied both Simon Cowell and Louis Walsh at the Judges' Houses stage of the competition in previous years - revealed the businessman would be her top choice to replace Kelly Rowland on the show this year.
She told the Daily Star newspaper: "Richard would mix things up and bring a business perspective. I don't think it has to be two women and two men."
Last year's judges Louis, Tulisa Contostavlos and Gary Barlow are all set to remain on the panel when the show returns but despite Sinitta's wishes, former mentor Dannii Minogue is tipped to make a sensational comeback following the breakdown of her relationship with Kris Smith.
A source previously said: "Simon has always been a fan of Dannii's - and she is keen for a return to Britain after the end of her relationship with Kris.
"Rejoining 'The X Factor' would be ideal. Producers are really keen to make it happen - and Dannii's team feel it would be the perfect move.
"It would mean a clash with her current job as a judge on 'Australia's Got Talent', but bosses are so keen to have her return they are considering allowing her to miss some of the auditions for 'X Factor'."
