Duncan James thinks he'd be the perfect judge on this year's 'The X Factor' judging panel

Duncan James is desperate to become a judge on 'The X Factor'.

Last year's panel - comprised of Simon Cowell, Louis Walsh, Nicole Scherzinger and Sharon Osbourne - on the singing show may have gone down a treat with viewers but the Blue hunk thinks he'd be able to bring more to the table if he were to land the gig.

Speaking to Inside Soap magazine, he said: "I'd like to be a judge on 'The X Factor', if Mr Cowell is reading this! I was a judge on a show called 'Don't Stop Believing' and really enjoyed it. It was great to be in that position of power."

However, for now, the 38-year-old singer is currently busy starring as bad boy Ryan Knight in the Channel 4 soap 'Hollyoaks' and is thoroughly enjoying working alongside Jennifer Metcalfe (Mercedes McQueen) and hopes they have more scenes together.

He explained: "Everyone is just lovely; they've all be so supportive. But I'll tell you who's been really great to work with - Jennifer Metcalfe. She's always up for rehearsing off camera and making you go over stuff lots of times so you're really familiar with it. Sometimes you go on to set with an actor and they have their own stuff going on, like they're on the phone or doing their own thing. But Jen is really just up for rehearsing."

And Duncan - who identified himself as gay in 2012 but stated he was bisexual three years prior to that - wouldn't mind practicing the pair's snogging scenes again.

He said: "I personally really enjoyed snogging Jen - but then, who wouldn't? She's a nice girl and a great kisser. I'm definitely down for snogging her some more!"
