Jason Donovan likes to give "constructive criticism" to the 'Superstar' contestants.
The former 'Neighbours' actor is a judge on the ITV1 talent show - which is searching for a new Jesus to star in an arena tour of Lord Andrew Lloyd Webber's 'Jesus Christ Superstar' - and he says it's important to give the hopefuls advice on how they can improve.
Jason - who played Joseph in the West End production of 'Joseph and his Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat - said: "I think the thing with judging is to be honest and I think it's about constructive criticism. Essentially, I am one of them, I understand what it's like to be on that side of the camera. But I think it's really improtant to be honest and supportive."
Jason - who is joined on the panel by Mel C, Dawn French and Andrew - also revealed how he struggles to contain his comments as he always wants to say more.
He told TV show 'This Morning': "I think with this particular show, the level of talent is so strong and the margin so thin, that actually trying to comment on the performances is very difficult. And worse as the show goes on, because you've got to come up with words in a certain time period. I could rabbit on for months, but I can't."
