James Corden wants to takeover from Gary Barlow on 'The X Factor'.
The 'League of Their Own' host is keen to become a judge on the talent show, but he is not a fan of the new Flashvote feature and insists if he was a panellist on the programme then he would never abstain from voting.
Speaking on 'Alan Carr Chatty Man' on Channel 4 tonight (01.11.13), he says: "We should judge it.
"I love the show but I wish they would stop messing around with it.
"I am not a fan of this Flashvote b******t.
"I love deadlock.
"When the judges don't vote and go, 'I abstain,' I'm like, 'Shut up. You're paid millions to judge.' "
The 35-year-old actor even has some musical experience as during his younger years he was in a boy band called Full Frontal, but they later changed their name to Insatiable.
He says: "I was Barlow, the fat one who wrote the songs."
James admitted his ultimate boy band would consist of Gary, his friend and One Direction hunk Harry Styles, Jordan Knight from New Kids On The Block, Justin Timberlake and Shane Filan from Westlife.
