The 'Troublemaker' singer is said to be in talks with producers to sit on the 2014 panel.
Olly Murs has been linked to a potential role judging on this year's series of The X Factor UK alongside fellow rumoured panelist Cheryl Cole.
The 'Right Place Right Time' singer came runner-up on the 2009 series of the show, and has now been rumoured to be in talks to join the judging line-up for the 2014 series.
"Simon wants Cheryl back more than anything and his idea is to make her the complete star of the show," a source told The Sunday Sun this week. "She's very tempted by his offer and looks close to saying yes.
"There's also a feeling Cheryl and Olly would have great chemistry," they explained. "He really fancies her and she would happily play along because she's very fond of him."
2013 panelist Nicole Scherzinger is heavily rumoured to have quit her role on the show, while returning judge Simon Cowell has admitted he has been in talks to make a comeback on the show.
