He said: "I would be utterly flattered by it. If it happens, I would be honoured that there were three people that wanted to be me.

"And if there were I’d be saying ‘Don’t do it too good, fellas. Be good but don’t be too good! You’re coming after my job.’"

The popstar and TV presenter has also said that if he had to be a tribute act, he would choose his Voice UK co-star Sir Tom Jones.

He said: "I’ve been working with him for the last few years and I feel like I know him well enough to be him. I might need a bit more work on the Welsh accent!

"I need to get the accent down and I need to somehow get my hair a little bit curlier. I think if I could master that then I’ve got Tom down."

Starstruck continues on Saturdays at 8.30pm on ITV.
