Paul Henry said to be interested in X Factor role

Paul Henry appears to have put his hand up for a role on the NZ version of The X Factor.

According to the Herald, the former Breakfast host is interested in a judging role on the reality TV show that is to be produced for TV3 next year.

It seems he has no interest in a hosting role on the series, saying: “I’d much rather have all the fun and no responsibility.”

Henry is also said to be keen to get involved in TV3’s election coverage later this year as well as sorting out a 60 Minutes interview with former Labour MP Darren Hughes.

    Aren’t the judges supposed to be mentors on the X-Factor? People from the entertainment industry who can school up the talent? Having said that, I’m sure Paul can do as good a job as any NZ music mogul. Are there any??

    Paul was a Music JD in the 80’s and early 90’s  so he’d have some clues about the music industry … it would be very entertaining …
