Josh Cuthbert fancies Sharon Osbourne.

The Union J singer - who made the final of 'The X Factor' in 2012 - has a big crush on the 60-year-old showbiz matriarch and joked he would have made a pass at her if she had been a judge during his time on the show.

Josh said: ''I love Sharon. She's stunning. She's like a sexy mum. I wouldn't say no to Sharon! I don't think Ozzy would be happy about it, but he's in America and she's here.''

The 21-year-old star is sick of girls chasing him purely because of his celebrity status and would love to date a woman who isn't interested in fame and fortune.

Asked if he'd prefer to date someone who isn't famous, he quipped: ''I think so. It doesn't matter what job they do if they're the one for me. She could be a plumber.

''[I like] someone who can cook. She's got to be trusting, honest, funny and genuine. That's the most important one - treat me like I'm a normal person, not just Josh from Union J.''

The 'Carry You' singer admits he sometimes distances himself from his bandmates J.J. Hamblett, George Shelley and Jaymi Hensley because he tries to go home as often as possible in order to stay grounded.

He told Now magazine: ''I go home a lot. I sound like the outcast as the other boys stay together a lot, but I like to go home as often as possible. It keeps me grounded.''
