Sinitta to audition for X Factor?: 'It'll happen before I get to judge'

By
Sinitta has admitted to Digital Spy that she is more likely to become a contestant on The X Factor than a judge.

The 'So Macho' singer, who has served as a Judges' Houses mentor for all but one series and frequently campaigned for a spot on the panel, suggested that a 'comeback' category made exclusively of ex-popstars should be introduced.

Speaking to DS at this week's London Lifestyle awards, Sinitta clarified: "I've been joking about [being a judge] for ten years. Probably in the first few years I believed it could actually happen, but now I don't.

"I'd rather be a contestant on X Factor... I haven't had a record out since the '90s so it'll be like a proper comeback.

"I reckon there should be another category - that's what we should do. We should have five categories - Boys, Girls, Groups, Over-25s and the Comebacks. We need to copyright this. I think I should [pitch it to Simon]."

Sinitta also admitted that her vocals probably aren't strong enough to get her through the Blind Auditions on X Factor's rival show The Voice UK.

"I think I'm more of a visual act," she confessed. "I would rather that they were watching with headphones on and couldn't hear me."

Sinitta also confirmed to DS that The Jeremy Kyle Show got in touch after seeing her tweets about reports of her aborting Simon Cowell's baby.
