I'm A Celebity's Ashley Roberts wants to join X Factor panel

I'm A Celebrity 2012 - Ashley Roberts

I'm A Celebrity 2012 runner up Ashley Roberts is reportedly eying a spot on the X Factor!

The American beauty is keen to launch a TV career here in the UK, following in the steps of her former bandmate Nicole Scherzinger.

Ashley’s pal Bobby Newberry was in Australia supporting her in last night's final, and revealed that Ashley would love to join The X Factor after apparently missing out on the US show.

Bobby told the Daily Mirror: “Ashley would love to move to the UK and make a career there, and I think that’ll be her next move.

“She’s on a path ...she would love to do television presenting. She just missed out on a job at the X Factor USA, hosting the show and I know she was very keen to do that. If she got the opportunity to work on the UK show, she would do that in a heartbeat.

“The UK loves her and they want more of her, so this isn’t the end of her on ­television screens in the UK.

Sources claimed that Ashley has been "inundated with ­offers" since leaving the jungle last night and is planning a permanent move to the UK.

The insider revealed: “She loves the States and her family, but she hasn’t ­really got anything keeping her there.

“Her representatives have been inundated with ­offers of work and she could become a household name in Britain now she has stepped out of the shadow of Nicole and the rest of the Pussycat Dolls.

“X Factor would be her dream gig, but if she couldn’t make it on to the main show, she would be perfect for the Xtra Factor on ITV2.”
