Burke appeared as a guest judge on last year's series while covering for Kelly Rowland.

"I'm concentrating on my music at the moment," she told Lorraine Kelly. "If given the opportunity I'm sure I would have a conversation with Simon about it.

"I know how [the finalists were] feeling. It was an honour to be asked to do it. Really scary but I was grateful for the opportunity."

Talking about her upcoming second studio LP Heartbreak On Hold, he added: "I've taken a year and a half out to do this album.

"I really unzipped my heart for this album. It feels comforting to say the least. It was a challenge because I've got a massive fear of being open.

"I want it to uplift people, and make people smile. I can't wait for people to hear it."

Geri Halliwell is currently the frontrunner to replace Kelly Rowland on this year's X Factor.

Heartbreak On Hold will be released on June 4.
