New 'Xtra Factor' co-host Rochelle Humes says she is prepared for the "unruly" 'X Factor' judging panel because she has a two-year-old daughter

Rochelle Humes thinks being a parent will help her deal with the 'X Factor' judges.

The Saturdays singer - who has two-year-old daughter Alaia-Mai with husband Marvin Humes - is to co-host spin-off show 'The Xtra Factor' with DJ Melvin Odoom and already has tactics in mind to handle the "unruly" panel.

She explained: "I think when it comes to interviewing the judges on live TV, they can be a bit unruly so I'll just have to treat them the way I treat my husband and tell them, 'Listen, we've got a job to do here.'

"Being a mum will help. If I can deal with a two year old, I'm sure I can deal with the judges."

This year's judging panel is comprised of returning judges Simon Cowell and Cheryl Fernandez-Versini, along with newcomers Nick Grimshaw and Rita Ora.

Rochelle told HELLO!: "I already know Cheryl and Grimmy and I'm getting to know Rita and the big guy [Simon Cowell]."

Rochelle is excited by her new role, but is trying not to think of how huge the programme is or she'll get nervous.

She said: "I'm so chuffed to be doing it but I'm trying not to think about how big the show is and how many people are watching it."
