Kian Egan wants to be an 'X Factor' judge.
The former Westlife singer is keen to join the judging panel of the ITV1 show although not if it means his good friend and ex-manager Louis Walsh would be sacked.
He said: "Being on 'The X Factor' judging panel would be an amazing gig and something I would thoroughly enjoy. I would hate to replace Louis Walsh. That would never be my intention."
Kian - who has previously hosted 'The Xtra Factor' on ITV2 and is currently on ITV1's 'Surprise Surprise' - is a huge fan of the show as he has helped Louis choose his acts in the past, as well as performing on the live shows with Westlife.
He told The Sun newspaper: "It's an amazing TV show and a great one to be a part of. I certainly feel that since 'The X Factor' started I've been around it and in it an awful lot.
"I did the judges homes with Louis, presented 'The Xtra Factor' a few times and this will be the first series of the main 'X Factor' show that Westlife don't perform on.
"We really have had an amazing time on 'The X Factor' over the years so it would be great for that to continue."
