Donny Osmond has confessed he'd love to be offered the role of judge on 'The X Factor' and is "waiting for the call" from Simon Cowell

Donny Osmond wants to be a judge on 'The X Factor'.

The American singer and actor - who appeared as a guest judge on 'Strictly Come Dancing' last week - has revealed he'd love to give his opinion to wannabe singers on the BBC One celebrity dance contests' rival show.

Quizzed by Jamelia on ITV's 'Loose Women' on whether he would consider taking on the job, he said: "Place the call baby!"

Jamelia responded, saying: "My reason for asking that is that you are genuinely talented and clearly you love music and I think that's really important that we have that on these shows."

The former teen heartthrob went on to claim that his experience of the music industry and the hard work he put into his career would make him the perfect choice.

He added: "I would love to do that. I am waiting for the call as well. I don't want to sound like I am patting myself on the back but I've really gone up the ranks and climbed the ladder the hard way.

"There were a lot of opportunities for me to do the shocking thing like you are saying and I picked the hard way around - get out there with your music, get out there and sing the song.

"There's a lot of great artists that I love - Ed Sheeran, I love Ed Sheeran, Sam Smith - I think Sam Smith is a very talented guy."

However, Donny insists he won't beg 'X Factor' boss Simon Cowell for a job, despite being interested in the role of a judge.

He added: "I would not stoop that low to beg."
