Will Young "can’t wait" to have children.

The 39-year-old singer is planning to raise a family of his own eventually but doesn’t think he’d be able to cope as a single parent.

He said: "I can’t wait to have kids. I totally will, be it fostering or adopting.

"I don’t know if I’d want to have kids if I wasn’t in a relationship because I feel I wouldn’t be able to do it as a single parent. Could that become too isolating?"

But for now, the ‘Leave Right Now’ hitmaker is content with his two dogs – most of the time.

He told Red magazine: "They do make me happy. I’ve got a dachshund and a border terrier.

"There’s a real closeness. They are like kids – completely dependent. Sometimes I hate them, though."

Will shot to fame when he won the first series of ‘Pop Idol’ in 2002, but it isn’t a route to stardom he’d want to see his future children undertake.

He said: "I don’t think I’d want my kid going into it.

"Saturday night TV shows are all about getting out there live and doing it. I can’t watch them

"There’s no difference between that and people going to see gladiators at the coliseum."

Last year, Will repeatedly hit out at then-education secretary Nicky Morgan for neglecting LGBT mental health in schools and failing to respond to homophobic bullying, and he admits his drive to make a difference stems from his "maternal feeling".

He said: "I’ve developed a maternal feeling – like a lioness.

"Over the last five years I sorted a lot of my s**t out. Now I feel more protective of younger people and vulnerable people. I want to do more for the world."
