Media supremo Simon Cowell has revealed that he wants Gareth Malone, star of BBC2's The Choir, to join one of his shows!
The 36-year-old came to Cowell's attention last month when the Military Wives group he formed on his show beat X Factor winners Little Mix to the coveted Christmas no.1 position with their single 'Wherever You Are'.
Now, the Britain's Got Talent judge has revealed that he'll be keeping his eye on Malone, telling the Daily Mail: "Yes, he should be a Syco target. He is like a stealth missile, he has sort of crept up on everyone. He would be good for us."
However, Cowell added that there were no hard feelings over his chart victory, saying: "I wasn’t furious about the Army Wives single beating us, I had two copies of it on pre-order."
