Former Westlife singer Brian McFadden has revealed that he would love to be a judge on the X Factor or The Voice.

The Dubliner said that while he likes reality talent shows, he wouldn't be heading into the rainforest like his wife Vogue Williams.

"I would never do a show like Celebrity Big Brother or I'm A Celebrity, I don't know how people just sit there - that wouldn't excite me," he said.

"But I wouldn't say no to The Voice or The X Factor, as you feel like you've had a hand in someone's career," he added.

Sitting on the panel of either of the biggest singing shows in the UK and Ireland wouldn't be a stretch as he was previously a judge on Australia's Got Talent.

Brian is dad to Molly (13) and Lily-Sue (12) with ex-wife Kerry Katona and said that he wouldn't be surprised if his eldest daughter tried to crack the industry.

"Molly is a great singer and she's gone through phases of wanting to become a pop star," he said.

"I'll support her whatever her dream is, but firstly my girls have to get a good education," he told OK! Magazine.

Meanwhile, Vogue (29) revealed that while she's not ready to have children yet, she wants to have a boy with Brian in the future.

Brothers

"I've always wanted to have a little boy first as I have older brothers," she said.

"If Brian was the one able to get pregnant then we'd consider having children now but I'm not ready as I don't want to stop working.

"I hope to have babies in my early 30s. We'd love a little boy to cause some madness," Brian added.

The couple said the secret to their marriage is that they keep their problems private.

"Brian and I are best friends so that really helps to keep our relationship a happy one," Vogue said.

"I think everyone has issues in their marriage and you don't make them open issues but it's like any relationship, just you're more public in this industry."
