Ronan Parke: Get Rihanna on BGT

Ronan Parke thinks Rihanna would make a great judge

Britain's Got Talent star Ronan Parke thinks Rihanna would make a brilliant addition to the show's judging panel.

The 13-year-old - who was runner-up to Jai McDowell on the last series of the ITV1 talent contest - said the US star would be the ideal replacement for Michael McIntyre - who has left the show after just one series.

"I went to see her last night in concert and she was absolutely amazing," Ronan said of US chart-topper Rihanna.

"I think she'd be a really, really good judge. I think she'd be really fair."

Ronan - whose self-titled debut album is released on October 24 - also gave his seal of approval to former X Factor judge Dannii Minogue, who has been tipped for a seat on the panel.

"She was a really good judge on the X Factor, so why not?" he added.

The singer also admitted he still got the jitters when he met Britain's Got Talent and X Factor mogul Simon Cowell.

"I was scared of him! I get really, really starstruck," he confessed.

"The last time I saw him was quite a while ago now, I met him in the Sony offices. He was wandering round, he came over to me and he was just really, really lovely. He just had a normal conversation with me and was kind to everyone."
