Sarah Harding rose to fame on a reality TV talent show and now it looks like she may be going back to her roots. The former Girls Aloud star wants to be a judge on Britain's Got Talent.

Speaking to the Daily Star, the 33-year-old singer revealed that she would love to join David Walliams, Simon Cowell, Alesha Dixon and Amanda Holden on the panel. But she insists that she is not interested in Cowell's other show, The X Factor, because she would not like the comparisons to ex-bandmate Cheryl Fernandez-Versini.

"I love Cheryl on The X Factor but I wouldn't want to do it and be compared to her," she explained. "I don't think I'd like the pressure of making or breaking someone."

She added: "I would prefer to do Britain's Got Talent as it is more light-hearted."

News of her reality show ambitions come days after she was unceremoniously axed from Coronations Street. She was given her marching orders from the soap after just four episodes following negative feedback from fans.

Showrunners were said to be unimpressed by her performance as Robert Preston's estranged wife, Joni.

"It's safe to say Sarah's Corrie career hasn't gone as planned. Fans and critics have been pretty unimpressed with her acting," a source told The Sun in July. "It doesn't reflect well on Corrie, who have been accused of chasing ratings with gimmicks."

The insider added: "They will not be getting her back and the general consensus on set is that this was a failed experiment."
