The 'Vegas Girls' singer says he wants to move into a judging role later on in his music career.
Conor Maynard has revealed he is keen to try his hand at judging on shows like The X Factor and The Voice in the future.
The 'Can't Say No' singer says taking on a panel role is "part of the plan" for down the line in his music career, but promises he wouldn't be a "brutal" judge if and when he does join a talent show.
"It looks like a fun thing to do, so it's part of the plan to eventually try that sort of thing," Conor revealed to the Daily Star this week. "I wouldn't be deliberately brutal as a judge but I'd certainly be honest."
The 'Vegas Girl' star went on to praise this year's newest reality show The Voice UK for having pop stars and musicians serve as the judges, claiming it gave the series more credibility.
"The Voice was good because it was musicians judging it," Conor explained. "With previous pop shows, you'd always hear fans moan, 'They're not musicians, so how can they judge it?'. But on The Voice, the judges know what the people auditioning are going through."
