Leona Lewis has revealed she wouldn't mind sitting behind the 'X Factor' judges' desk on a more permanent basis.

The former winner has said that after sitting in as a guest judge at this year's London auditions she's got a taste for judging other people's talent.

In an interview with BBC News, she said: "I really enjoyed the stint that I had on it coming in and guest judging. At first I didn't think I would, but I did enjoy it in the end.

"In the future doing something permanent would be quite fun. At the end I kind of got into my stride a bit. I think it would be fun to do it."

And there may be space to accommodate her on the panel too, as Gary Barlow looks set to leave the show after the current series.

It is looking likely the singer will be too busy in the studio with Take That to return as a judge.

A source told The Sun: "The events of the last week have really confirmed in Gary's mind that he needs to get back to what he loves best."

Meanwhile, Leona is due to appear on this week's 'Alan Carr: Chatty Man'.

Recording the show last night, she posted a backstage pic of herself getting ready for the show.
