Brian McFadden wants to be a judge on The X Factor

Brian McFadden has set his eyes on a becoming a judge on the X Factor.

The 34-year-old former Westlife singer insists he would never be a contestant on a reality TV show but he would jump at the chance of helping someone's career as a talent show judge.

"I would never do a show like 'Celebrity Big Brother' or 'I'm a Celebrity...'. I don't know how people just sit there - that wouldn't excite me,” he said.

"But I wouldn't say no to 'The Voice' or 'The X Factor', as you feel like you've had a hand in someone's career."

And one person who could use Brian's career advice is 13-year-old Molly, his eldest daughter with ex-wife Kerry Katona.

Brian - who also has 12-year-old Lilly-Sue with the Atomic Kitten star - said: "Molly is a great singer and she's gone through phases of wanting to become a pop star.

"I'm support her whatever her dream is, but firstly my girls have to get a good education"

Away from work, Brian and wife Vogue Williams, 29, want to have a son, though the model-and-DJ isn't ready to take a career break to have a baby just yet.

"I've always wanted to have a little boy first as I have older brothers. If Brian was the one able to get pregnant then we'd consider having children now but I'm not ready as I don't want to stop working,” she told Closer magazine.

"I hope to have babies in my early thirties."

"We'd love a little boy to cause some madness," Brian added.
