Alesha Dixon has confessed Simon Cowell once suggested she would be a good addition to the 'X Factor' judging panel

Simon Cowell thinks Alesha Dixon would be a good 'X Factor' judge.

The music mogul is a big fan of the singer's judging style on 'Britain's Got Talent' and believes she has what it takes to join the panel of his flagship show.

According to the Daily Mirror newspaper, on this Saturday's 'Britain's Got More Talent' episode (04.05.13), the bubbly star admits Simon has discussed the idea with her in the past.

Host Stephen Mulhern asks: "How true is it that Simon asked you to be a judge on X Factor?"

To which an embarrassed Alesha replies: "You're such a cheeky one! Simon mentioned that he thought I could do the job and that was it really...

"Stop asking me these questions! I don't know."

However, Alesha - who is set to host new ITV show 'Your Face Sounds Familiar', a TV talent show similar to 90s favourite 'Stars in Their Eyes' - also revealed her true calling lies in being behind the mic, not in judging others' talent.

She said: "There are so many things I would love to do. It's funny, even though I was in Mis-teeq for eight years and I had an incredible time promoting 'The Alesha Show' record, I still feel slightly unsatisfied as an artist."
