X Factor 2013: Alexandra Burke wants to replace Tulisa. God help us all

Alexandra Burke (X Factor 2012 promo)

Alexandra Burke is still sniffing around for a spot on the X Factor judging panel.

And with Tulisa and Gary Barlow tipped to leave the show this year, the former X Factor champ would love to join the show.

Let's face it, her music career is hardly keeping her busy.

Speaking to DigitalSpy, Alex said she'd love to return to the show as a full time judge after her guest judge stint back in 2011.

"Once was definitely not enough, it gave me a taste for it," Alex explained. "If the opportunity came about I would love it – to go out there and find the next music star would be a fantastic experience. If Simon asked I would definitely consider it. It would be an honour."

But while Alex is happy to budge Tulisa or Gary from the panel, she added: "Can I just say though, Louis ain’t going anywhere!"

However Alex has competition from Brian McFadden, who is also hoping for a call from bosses.

He told STV: “I’m going to be the next judge on X Factor, I’m just waiting for Louis Walsh to pass away! It's in the contract, as soon as Louis dies, it’s in his will that I take his seat, so any day now!”

He added: “I love Louis on that show, he’s so honest. And I love the way he’s so patriotic, if there’s anyone from Ireland he thinks they’re amazing. He’s afraid their parents will bump into him in the street and give him a slap!”

COME BACK TULISA
