Tom, Danny, Harry and Dougie want to take over the judging panel.

They’ve got ten years in the music industry under their belts byt McFly have admitted they still have one burning ambition- they want to be X Factor judges!

Tom Fletcher, Harry Judd, Dougie Poynter and Danny Jones have admitted they would seriously consider a spot behind the judges table on X Factor, or even in one of those famous spinning chairs on The Voice:

We’d love to do it, I’m sure we’d love to do it. I don’t know [why we haven’t before]. We haven’t been asked,”Tom told Digital Spy.

Despite Tom’s enthusiasm, one member of the band isn’t so keen, with Strictly champ Harry confessing he’s worried bandmate Danny wouldn’t be able to cope with live TV:

“Maybe Tom [would do it]. I might do it. Danny probably wouldn’t do it.” Danny chipped in: “I’d panic and pass out.”

Harry added: “And I’d worry that Dougie would ruin our careers after one live show [if he did it].”

The boys all have experience of TV though with Danny taking part in 2010’s Popstar to Operastar, Harry’s lifted the Strictly Come Dancing glitterball trophy, Dougie won I’m A Celebrity in the same year and Tom had a stint on ITV gameshow The Cube.

Do you think McFly have what it takes to take over Simon and co’s judging spots?

MCFLY have landed their own TV special to be screened before next month’s X Factor final.

The hour-long show will see Dougie, Danny, Harry and Tom perform some of their greatest hits for a studio audience.

The band will also be doing comedy sketches about Harry’s Strictly stint and Dougie’s time on I’m A Celeb.

Tom did The Cube of course, but I’m not sure that was as memorable.

A telly snitch told me: “McFly are still really popular after all these years so ITV producers jumped at the chance to sign them up.

“It’ll be a great hour of music, comedy and some celeb guests.”

I’m told the cheeky four-piece will also be playing pranks on their famous friends.

The special, which was given the green light after a meeting earlier this month, is scheduled to air on December 9 at 7pm.

My source added: “To get a slot just before the X Factor final is a pretty big deal. If it gets good ratings there’s a chance the lads could even be given their own series.

“Strictly and jungle viewers love them, so ITV have big expectations for this.”

Entertainmentwise is looking for who we think is the best Reality TV Star and Dougie is among the nominees for I’m a Celebrity.

It has been another huge year for reality TV and with the old traditional shows like The X Factor, Big Brother and The Only Way Is Essex having returned to our screens, new favourites including My Big Fat Gypsy Wedding also battled it out for a place in our hearts and our TV screens.

Lets face it! It’s the stars that make the show and this year we have had our fair share of dramas, tears, laughter and stormy arguments thanks to reality TV….But who has entertained you the most?

Do you think Paddy Doherty’s time on Celebrity Big Brother should go down as reality TV gold? Or do you think Amy Childs should be crowned best reality star of 2011 for breaking away from The Only Way Is Essex and launching her own reality show, All About Amy?

What about Dougie Poynter? He may be a musician but since his win in I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here, has he made the transition to the most lovable reality star in your eyes?

Tell us by voting now!

McFLY are so impressed by One Direction’s debut single they wish it was their tune.
X Factor boyband One Direction drop debut track What Makes You Beautiful on September 11.

And it reminds me of early McFly tracks.

Drummer Harry Judd, 25, told my reporter Mik Curtis at the Summer Sundae festival in Leicester: “They’re young, like when we started, so it makes me feel old. But it’s a compliment to us if people think they sound like early McFly.

“I wish we had their new single for ourselves – it’s fresh.”

Singer Tom Fletcher, 26, agreed: “They’re a really likeable bunch of guys and they’ve got everything it takes to hit the big time.

“They’ve recorded a song I wrote for them – I just hope they use it.”

After their breakthrough in 2004, McFly certainly know a thing or two about longevity and don’t have to fear any new whippersnappers.

Bassist Dougie Poynter, 23, said: “Music goes full cycle so it’ll come back round for McFly, but the urban thing has made it hard for us to stay relevant.
“We don’t move with the trends.”

Tom added: “We’re at the early stages of writing new stuff.

“It’s fun playing it to each other.

“And we’ll be touring the UK early next year most likely.”
