JLS singer Oritse Williams wouldn't turn down a role on 'The X Factor' judging panel because of the band's history with the show
JLS' Oritse Williams wants a place on 'The X Factor' panel.
The 26-year-old singer revealed he wouldn't turn down the offer to be a Judge on the show after assigning the success of his Brit Award-winning band to their appearance on the ITV show in 2008.
When asked if he'd ever consider sitting on the 'The X Factor' panel alongside the likes of Louis Walsh, Gary Barlow and Sharon Osbourne, Oritse told BANG Showbiz: "I'd never say no to something like that. I think where we've come from - you know we came through 'The X Factor' and I feel like it really kind of contributed so much to us and other artists that have come up."
Speaking on behalf of his bandmates Aston Merrygold, Marvin Humes and JB Gill, he added: "It would be an incredible opportunity for any of us."
It seems Oritse isn't the only JLS member opting for a career change after the group announced their split following the release of a farewell album 'Goodbye: The Greatest Hits' at the end of this year.
Marvin Humes was quickly snapped up along with his wife Rochelle to temporarily replace 'This Morning' hosts Philip Schofield and Holly Willoughby while they holidayed this summer.
The 28-year-old singer enjoyed his stint as a presenter so much he admitted he is keen to return to the show in the future.
He said: "We really, really enjoy 'This Morning' it was great for us to do it together. The opportunity came up and were are big fans of the show so we jumped at it.
He added: "Hopefully they'll have us back again and who knows next year - we'd love to continue working together in that sense on the TV."
