The JLS star says he would be a "hands-on" judge if he ever joined the popular ITV show.

JLS star Oritse Williams says he would "love" to be the one to replace Louis Walsh on The X Factor UK when the long-running panelist steps down from the show.

The Irish judge has seemingly confirmed plans to leave the show after this year, his tenth on the ITV talent show, and 'Hottest Girl In The World' signer Oritse says he would be the perfect replacement.

"I'd love to be a judge," Oritse revealed to the Daily Star this week. "I think it would be amazing if Louis passed over the judging responsibility to somebody from one of the groups he's been involved with.

"It would be nice to have a judge who originally came from the show too," the JLS star explained, before promising he would be up for the challenge.

"I would be the most hands-on, 24/7 judge," Oritse vowed. "I've been given the most amazing platform and it would be good to be able to give that to someone else."

Oritse and his JLS bandmates recently marked five years together since their first audition on The X Factor UK.

JLS are set to kick off a farewell tour of the UK this autumn.
