Former Westlife star Brian McFadden is on the hunt for a woman who can cook.

Despite hosting cooking game show Who's Doing The Dishes, the singer insisted he has no interest in learning how to make his own meals.

He said: "I cannot cook. I can make beans on toast and eggs, that's it. I don't think I've ever cooked anything."

But his lack of skill in the kitchen is apparently shared by his ex-wives Kerry Katona and Vogue Williams, as well as former fiancee Delta Goodrem.

The 36-year-old told the Press Association: "I've had three partners - Kerry, Delta, Vogue. Not one could cook anything. Takeaways and dinners out the whole time.

"The next woman I'm going to meet, I'm going to hope she can cook, just so I can stop eating takeaways.

"I'm going to have to go on Tinder and go 'I'm looking for a chef'."

Who's Doing The Dishes is back for a third series on ITV Daytime, with guests including Paul Daniels' widow Debbie McGee, Steps star Ian "H" Watkins and I'm A Celebrity's Lady C.

The show sees celebrities invite a team of competitors into their home where they cook them a meal. But their identity remains a mystery, and guests must guess whose house they are visiting in order to get out of doing the washing up.

However, McFadden said there is one person missing from the show: Simon Cowell.

The music mogul signed Irish boyband Westlife in 1998.

McFadden said: "Simon Cowell, he'd be great because you know he's not going to be able to cook."

Former Westlife manager Louis Walsh disgraced himself in the first series by creating a chicken marinade out of water, mustard and ketchup, and serving chips so hard they caused dental problems.

"Louis was disgraceful - how could you cook chips so wrong that you actually chip someone's tooth with a chip? That says it all," McFadden said.

But the singer believes Cowell could actually set a new low: "I say he would be worse."

:: Who's Doing The Dishes airs on ITV on weekdays at 3pm.
