Melvin Odoom desperate to visit Simon Cowell's home

Melvin Odoom "would do anything" to get an invite to Simon Cowell's house.

The 35-year-old presenter was hired by the 55-year-old music mogul as the new host of the 'Xtra Factor' alongside The Saturdays singer Rochelle Humes and he's admitted he's upset he's not yet been invited to his boss' London home.

Melvin told BANG Showbiz at the launch of 'The X Factor' at London's Picturehouse Central cinema: "I'm the only person who's working on the show who hasn't been to Simon's house yet. I'm working on that."

Rochelle said: "He said he would do anything to go, he just wants to go now."

The Kiss FM Radio host claimed he'd even be willing to take up employment at Simon's residence just so he can catch a glimpse of the luxury pad.

He added: "I can be staff, as long as I get to be inside his house. Is there anyone that works in the toilets? I could be that guy that gives you the aftershave. It sounds like an amazing place, it sounds like a palace."

Meanwhile, Rochelle insists her husband Marvin Humes - with whom she has two-year-old daughter Alai-Mai - is far from jealous of her new TV partnership as it means she has someone else to nag.

Asked if he's jealous, Rochelle shared: "Who wouldn't be? No he's probably pleased that I'm chewing someone else's ear off."

Melvin added: "I'm basically your husband without the sweet loving."

'The X Factor' kicks off on Saturday (29.08.15) at 8pm on ITV.
