Sinitta thinks 'The X Factor' needs Geri Halliwell on the judging panel - because she's"insane".
The 'So Macho' singer - who is a close friend of the show's creator, Simon Cowell - says the former Spice Girls singer would be a great permanent addition to the programme as it is lacking some craziness since Simon left.
She said: "I love Geri. I think she's absolutely insane but now that we don't have Simon, we need someone to take the crazy role."
Geri was a guest judge on the ITV show as producers tried to find a replacement for Kelly Rowland but in the end they went with Nicole Scherzinger to join Gary Barlow, Louis Walsh and Tulisa Contostavlos on the judging panel.
Sinitta also spoke about Simon's recent breakdown and said it was a good wake-up call for him as he was putting too much pressure on himself.
She told The Sun newspaper: "He did have a tough summer but he's turned it all around.
"It was a good wake-up call because it's made him try to bring harmony to his whole life, balancing the work and pleasure thing instead of being a complete workaholic."
