X Factor fans want Alesha Dixon to be given a permanent seat on the panel after she filled in for Simon Cowell.

The Britain’s Got Talent star stepped in for judge Cowell as he recovers following a fall at his London home on Friday.

Viewers were impressed with the singer’s judging skills and are calling for her to be given a slot on the ITV programme.

One person posted on Twitter: “PLEASE PLEASE… Have @AleshaOfficial as a permanent judge next year!!!”

“Alesha should be a full-time judge. She shines on @TheXFactor. More than when she is on @BGT,” said another.

Some viewers suggested Dixon could replace one of the other judges – Louis Walsh, Nicole Scherzinger or Sharon Osbourne.

“@TheXFactor why isn’t Alesha a permanent judge? She’s better than the others,” said one.

Dixon was a hit when she appeared on the X Factor room auditions earlier in the series.

Cowell was taken to hospital on Friday after reportedly taking a tumble down the stairs as he went to get some hot milk.
