Leona Lewis: 'I want to judge X Factor'


Leona Lewis has revealed that she would like to be a permanent fixture on The X Factor judging panel.

The former X Factor winner who was a guest judge on this year's series said: "Maybe in the future doing something permanent would be quite fun."

The 27-year-old singer has just released her lead single, Trouble, from her third studio album Glassheart.

Lewis co-wrote the track with Emeli Sande and she credits Tinie Tempah for finding her the song in a "really raw form".

And although she chose Childish Gambino to perform the rap on the single she did admit she would "love" to work with Tinie Tempah.

She says the album, which is two years in the making, has been a collaboration with executive producer, Fraser T Smith. The singer said working with him has given the album a "consistent sound", which features dubstep and electronic flavoured tracks.
