Shayne Ward wants to follow in the footsteps of Cheryl Cole and return to The X Factor as a judge.

The 28-year-old, who won the ITV talent show in 2005 wants to use his experience to become a panellist on the new series of the programme.

He said: “When Cheryl joined X Factor lots of people said, ‘Why is she on it?’ But she had a right to be there. She went through a talent show.

“Like Cheryl, I went on the show, competed, I won and I have a valuable opinion.

“That is why she was so great on the show - because people knew she had a right to say what she said.”

Shayne would love to star on the panel alongside former judge Sharon Osbourne - who appeared on the show from 2004 to 2007 - because they could “flirt all the time”.

He added to The Sun newspaper: “Bring me and Sharon back, we’ll just be flirting all the time.

“I do miss Sharon. When I did the show people were just waiting for our banter.”

Shayne is currently competing on ITV skating show ‘Dancing on Ice’, and last year he starred in 1980s-themed musical ‘Rock of Ages’ in London’s West End.
