The pop star said she had been approached about joining Simon Cowell on the judging panel.

She told Women’s Wear Daily: “They have definitely talked to me about X Factor. I think it would be a lot of fun. It’s definitely my life.”

The Dukes Of Hazzard actress, who has launched a fashion line, added: “To be a mentor for up-and-coming artists is right up my alley. I would have loved to have a mentor. I love watching people’s dreams come true.”

Jessica, 30, who divorced Nick Lachey in 2006 and was linked with singer John Mayer, also said she and her American football player fiance Eric Johnson were in no rush to marry.

She said: “We’ve both been married before. We’re enjoying our commitment to each other. We want to take our time.”
