Stereo Kicks want Louis Tomlinson on X Factor
Stereo Kicks think Louis Tomlinson would make a brilliant 'X Factor' judge.
The eight-piece boy band got to know the One Direction hunk - who shot to fame when he was put into the group on the 2010 series of the talent show - when he was a regular visitor to the programme last year, and they found he always dispensed good advice.
Group member Barclay Beales said: "I think he'd do a good job. He's been through it. He's quite funny isn't he. He'd be honest as well we reckon. He's become part of one of the biggest boy bands in the world and he's gone through the shows. So he knows how it works."
His bandmates added: "When we were on the show One Direction used to come down a lot when Simon (Cowell) was there on a Friday. Louis would ask if we were getting ready for show and he used to come down, sit on the panel and watch. So yeah we reckon he'd do really, really well at it."
The group, who came fifth on last year's 'X Factor' have also sought advice from the show's new host, former runner-up Olly Murs.
Speaking to Darryl Morris on Liverpool radio station Radio City 3, James Graham said: "I spoke to him about the Essex connection for about five minutes. Then he just sort of gave us a bit of advice on how to hold yourself on the show. How to keep your mind and to not go crazy with it because it's such an intense situation. We were watching his sound check , he was the best."
