Westlife's Nicky Byrne wants X Factor presenter job

Westlife's Nicky Byrne has revealed that he's keen to pursue a career in television once his final gig with the popular group has been and gone.

Speaking to the Daily Star newspaper, the singer explained that working on a music related show such as The X Factor would be perfect as he could put his experience to good use:

"It’s funny with The X Factor because in the past we’d be looking at the bands and how they perform, but this year I’m looking more at Louis and Dermot to see what they do. I’m keen to do more TV presenting and I can see myself getting into a Dermot O’Leary kind of role. Presenting a show like that is something I would like to do."

Byrne also added that his relationship with music mogul Simon Cowell is solid and may give him a working advantage if he ever wants to go up for a judging role on The X Factor in the future:

"I’ve a good relationship with Simon, despite everything. I texted him when we left the label and it’s all amicable now. Maybe down the road, me doing X Factor would be a very interesting conversation to have with him.”
