Kym Marsh has revealed she'd love to be a judge on 'Britain's Got Talent' as she thinks her personal experience with talent shows means she's able to "empathise" with contestants

Kym Marsh wants to be a judge on 'Britain's Got Talent'.

The 'Coronation Street' actress - who first found fame with the band Hear'Say on the talent show 'Popstars' - believes she'd be great on the ITV show because she's been there herself and can "empathise" with the contestants.

She said: "I'd love to have the chance to judge on one of those shows one day, but I think I'd be better on 'Britain's Got Talent' than 'The X Factor'. I'm a Jack-of-all-trades, so I might be better suited to that. So far Simon [Cowell] keeps passing me by! I know what it's like to go through a reality show - I could empathise with the contestants as I know how they're feeling."

The 39-year-old star - whose daughter Emily auditioned for BBC rival 'The Voice' earlier this year - also confessed she's not sure BBC Radio 1 DJ Nick Grimshaw is the best choice for the 'X Factor' judging panel following the announcement he and Rita Ora are to join Simon Cowell and Cheryl Fernandez Versini on the show later this year.

Speaking in her column for OK! magazine, she explained: "I get Rita Ora as she has done 'The Voice UK'. I'm not sure about Nick Grimshaw, which is a bit of a weird one. But I suppose you have to give people a chance. People might not know who he is, but Simon Cowell knows what he's doing with these shows."
