Church's X Factor duet
13:30 25 October 2006
Charlotte Church is desperate to duet with 'X Factor' contestant Ben Mills.
The Welsh chat show host is a huge fan of Ben - who is the bookie's favourite to win the talent show- and wants him to appear on her show so they can perform together.
A source told Britain's Daily Star newspaper: "Charlotte is a complete 'X Factor' addict and has been glued to it every year. She loves Ben and is backing him to win. Charlotte's already phoned up loads of times to vote for him.
"And she reckons it would be so much fun to do a duet with him."
The 20-year-old 'Crazy Chick' singer has taken a break from her music career to present 'The Charlotte Church Show' on Channel 4, but still sings the theme tune and performs with her guests.
So far she has sung with Amy Winehouse, Nelly Furtado and The Feeling and now she wants 26-year-old Ben to duet with her on the show.
The long-haired rocker - who has battled a cocaine addiction - is hoping to win 'X Factor' and land an album deal, but singing with Charlotte could help him on the way to chart-topping success.
Charlotte's boyfriend, Welsh rugby star Gavin Henson, needn't worry about competition from Ben.
The source added: "She doesn't fancy him or anything like that - he's hardly got the same looks as Gavin. But she thinks he's got loads of talent and deserves to win the show."
