Cheryl Fernandez-Versini has admitted she'd "die" if Ed Sheeran ever wanted to audition for the X Factor.

The newlywed singer will return as a judge when the 11th series of X Factor hits our screens this weekend, and she has a pretty clear idea of who she'd like to see on the show.

"I think Ed Sheeran's definitely got the X Factor.The guy is a superstar. He writes amazing lyrics. His collaborations are spot on. His videos are fun. He's unexpected, he's not commercially what you would think of. He's somebody that I would die for if he arrived at The X Factor to audition."

We're pretty sure Ed won't be rocking up to auditions this year but maybe they'll get him as a guest performer?!

As for what contestants SHOULDN'T do if they want to impress her, she says, men, keep your lips to yourself!

"The biggest audition 'turn off' is when they come in the room and they try and kiss you, or they come in and break-dance before they've introduced themselves," she told the X Factor official website.

"Doing what they think you want them to do is a big no-no for me - I want things to be authentic.

X Factor returns Saturday, 30 August on ITV1.
