Stevi Ritchie wants to work for Simon Cowell now he has left 'The X Factor'.
The loveable singer was voted off the talent show on Sunday (23.11.14) after judges Mel B, Louis Walsh and Cheryl Fernandez-Versini decided to save Andrea Faustini, with only his mentor Simon opting so keep him in the competition.
Stevi is now hoping Simon - who he has become friends with - will find him a job in the music business, and insists he's up for doing anything.
When asked by 'This Morning' hosts Philip Schofield and Amanda Holden if he wanted to work for the music mogul, he said: "I'd love to in any way - whether that's working with Sarah-Jane Crawford or some part of 'X Factor' ... I don't know, something like what you guys are doing!"
Philip interrupted to ask: "So not singing then?"
To which Stevi replied: "I don't mind doing a bit of singing but I wouldn't mind doing what you guys are doing, because you're great."
Stevi also revealed Simon gave him some words of encouragement after the TV show went off air to lift his spirits.
He said: "I love him, he's so genuine and down to earth, and not only is he a mentor but he is a friend. I had a chat with him in the dressing room last night and it was really, really nice.
"I knew from day one that I wasn't going to win. It's one of those things. I just thought I just wanted to go as far as I can and bring the fun factor back. And I think I did that!"
