Alexandra Burke wants to judge The X Factor UK this year (assuming she's asked!)

Alexandra Burke

Former X Factor winner Alexandra Burke has said she'd jump at the chance to become a permanent judge on the show this year, following her short stint as a guest judge last series.

Alexandra stepped in for an ill Kelly Rowland on one of the live shows, although the response from the public wasn't brilliant.

Even Alex admitted she can't watch herself back on the show, but insists it was just down to being "hyper".

She said: “People kept saying to me, ‘Why are you smiling so much?’ and I was like, ‘I am on the panel! I’m one of the luckiest girls on the planet right now!’

“I can’t watch it back though as I just look at myself and go, ‘Why are you so hyper, woman? Calm down!’ But I was just being myself and took what I’ve learned, not just from being on X Factor."

Speaking to the Daily Mirror, Alexandra said she'd happily go back for more if Simon Cowell asked.

She added: “If I get asked to do the role then yes. But I wouldn’t put myself forward for it.”
