Bolton told Digital Spy that a duet could be on the cards, praising the X Factor winner's "heartfelt" approach to her music.

"The only thing more important than a great instrument is the ability to put your heart into that instrument," he said. "That's what resonates with people, that's what moves human beings and she has that combination."

Bailey and Bolton opened last night's National Television Awards with a performance of 'Ain't No Mountain High Enough' - but the US musician admitted to DS that he had trouble hearing his backing track due to the "lively" audience.

Bolton also spoke about his viral hit song 'Jack Sparrow' - recorded with comedy musical troupe The Lonely Island - which has amassed almost 120m YouTube views since it debuted online in May 2011.

"It's opened up a whole other realm," he said. "A lot of television producers and writers are calling me for projects, so we're working on developing TV in the States."
