Sinitta, 80s pop star and long-standing sidekick of Simon Cowell, has revealed that every year she petitions the music mogul for a full-time judging spot on The X Factor.
“Every year I plead with Simon to make me a judge – I send him flowers, photos of me dressed up as a judge, voicemails of me singing about why I should have the job – the works,” Sinitta told Closer. “I think he’s scared to have me as competition.”
Sinitta’s long been a fixture of the show – always by Mr Cowell’s side as a guest judge during the Judges’ Houses. (The best gig if you ask me: sun, sea, holiday…)
