Could Ashley Banjo become a Britain's Got Talent judge?

Diversity's Ashley Banjo could be lined up to take over from Simon Cowell on Britain's Got Talent.

The dancer, who won the show back in 2009 with his dance crew, has already had a starring role in Sky1's talent show Got To Dance.

Now he's about to take to primetime again, albeit on BBC One, in new show Can’t Touch This on Saturday nights.

In a chat with the Daily Mirror, Ashley admitted he quite fancied the role of a judge on the BGT panel where things all began for him.

“It’s a show I’ve loved, and continue to love since being on it. I love seeing people sing and dance," he said. “Could I be horrible or brutal enough? If I had to be. If someone is bad and needs to be told they are bad, you tell them they are bad.

“I don’t think you need to be horrible for the sake of it, but I could be brutal if I had to.”

When asked if he had ever been in talks about joining the show, Ashley teased: “Oh... I’m not saying yes and I’m not saying no. Maybe one day!”

So watch this space!

For now, Ashley is eyeing up a role on Strictly Come Dancing but confessed he would probably surprise viewers by not being too good.

"I think the disciplines are completely different," the street dancer said.

He quipped: “I’ve never been approached to do it before. But now I’m a BBC presenter I might have to do it – maybe it’s part of my contract!”
