Kelly Brook feels Cowell’s ‘X Factor’ is tacky

London: Actress-model Kelly Brook says TV shows such as TV mogul Simon Cowell`s `The X Factor` are tacky.

The `Piranha 3D` star, who had a short stint as a judge on the music mogul`s `Britain`s Got Talent` in 2009 but was axed after less than a week, said she is glad that she didn`t pursue a career as a reality TV judge, Daily Star reported.

"The only reason I joined was because Simon persuaded me to do it. Just like he seems to do with everyone! He`s very, very persuasive.

"I never pursued that job... if I`d been a Strictly judge there`s nothing that would have taken me from that job. Strictly is the most fantastic, lovely show with a very loyal following and it`s... classy," she said.
