Courtney Act wants X Factor judging role

Courtney Act wants to be an "X Factor" judge.

The "Celebrity Big Brother" winner - who emerged victorious from the Channel 5 reality TV house in January last year - first found fame on "Australian Idol" and later went onto star in "RuPaul's Drag Race", and she certainly thinks she has what it takes to join Simon Cowell on the panel.

The drag queen - whose real name is Shane Jenek - told the Daily Star newspaper: "Hell yeah, I would love to.

"I don't know whether I would be the nice judge or the mean judge, but maybe the constructive judge."

The star also revealed her plan to win over the show's boss Cowell after befriending Little Mix - who won the talent show in 2011 and went to become one of the biggest bands in the world - and starred in their "Power" video.

For the most recent series, he was joined on the panel by One Direction star Louis Tomlinson, and married couple Robbie Williams and Ayda Field.

However, Courtney added: "Maybe I could be a guest judge, I could befriend the judges, or someone who knows them... I would love a Little Mix Collab!"

Last year, Courtney also set her sights on another reality project as she admitted she would love to appear on "Strictly Come Dancing" as the first drag queen to compete on the BBC show.

She previously said: "I hope the BBC would be open to it. They love a stunt casting. Surely it's time for the BBC to do it?

"I would want to be Courtney and dance with a male partner."
