Sinitta has risked the wrath of her BFF Simon Cowell by revealing that she'd love to be a contestant on Strictly Come Dancing.

The BBC One talent contest is the arch rival of Simon's show The X Factor - and consistently thrashes it in the ratings.

The latest episode of Strictly attracted 9.08million viewers on Saturday - a whole 1.74million viewers less than X Factor's 7.32million.

But despite her famously close relationship with the media mogul, it turns out that she isn't that loyal to X Factor.

The 45-year-old - who previously took part in I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here! - told The Sun that she'd jump at the chance to take to the Strictly dance floor.

She said: "I'd love to do Strictly but I’ve not been asked. Maybe it’s because we are on at the same time, but Caroline (Flack, former Xtra Factor presenter) is doing it. I saw Mark Wright do his thing but it is hard. I wish I could see both.

"That’s my kind of show – no spiders, glitter, your hair and make-up done, indoors. I never get asked to do nice things like that!"

Sinitta is known for being Simon's trusted advisor during the Judges' Houses stage of The X Factor - and caused a stir during the current series by turning up at his LA pad in a colourful giant headdress.

She also spent the day with him on Tuesday as he celebrated his 55th birthday.

Both Strictly and The X Factor continue this weekend, with the latter kicking off its live shows by revealing the identities of its 'wildcard' contestants.
