As Gary Barlow has hinted that he might leave his X Factor judging job to go on a solo tour next year, a certain rapper has let it be known that he’d like the role.

Speaking to We Love Pop magazine, the 25-year-old Tinchy Stryder said:

Yo, Sir Cowell, how about you let me come be on the panel and let them know how it’s going, ya know?

“Yo, Sir Cowell”? I’m sure that will go down well with Simon.

Or maybe Tinchy is just what the show needs. Bring some realness to the panel, albeit in tinchy doses.
