Jason Donovan to be X Factor judge?

Jason Donovan wants to be an 'X Factor' judge.

The 'Too Many Broken Hearts' hitmaker - who was on the panel for 'Superstar', which looked for a lead in West End show 'Jesus Christ Superstar' in 2012 - admits he isn't the "best singer" but thinks his years of experience gives him the credentials to cast his eye over aspiring performers.

He said: "I think I've been around for long enough to justify doing something like that.

"I don't claim to be the best singer in the world, but I've certainly had a long career and I think that defines true talent."

While he waits for a call from Simon Cowell, Jason - who has children Jemma, 16, Zac, 15, and Molly, five, with wife Angela Malloch - is looking forward to going out on tour to perform songs from his 'Ten Good Reasons' album, which was released in 1989.

He said: "To have a bunch of fans that have been with me for over 25 years is great.

"I'm, a lot more confident now compared to when I released the album when I was 21, so I feel like I'm doing the songs justice now."

Jason, who has previously battled drug addiction, tries to live his life to the full because he never knows what is around the corner.

He told Closer magazine: "You've got to check yourself in the mirror occasionally.

"You never know what's around the corner, so you've got to keep reminding yourself to go out there and enjoy it because shocks happen all the time."
