Look at Amanda Holden, someone's after your seat on Britain's Got Talent!

Actress and singer Denise Van Outen has said she'd love to join the show as a judge alongside Simon Cowell and David Walliams.

The 40-year-old told The Sun's TV Magazine at the weekend: “They’ve got their judging panel right now, but if they were ready to refresh it, I’d definitely be up for that.

"Can you imagine the trouble that me and David [Walliams] would cause? We’d be a nightmare."

Denise, who is currently appearing in BBC One Soap EastEnders, continued: “I’ve always liked Simon Cowell.

"Me and [The Big Breakfast co-host] Johnny Vaughan worked with him when we released our cover of Kylie and Jason’s Especially For You [in 1998] and he was great.”

Unfortunately for Denise, Simon Cowell told us he has no plans to change up the BGT panel.

"I think – and I hate to admit it – this panel is about as good as we’ve done on any show!" he said earlier this year. “I like being on the show but more importantly the other three like being on the show. They genuinely want to find someone talented, particularly the girls.

Britain's Got Talent continues this Saturday night on ITV.
