The London 2012 star responds to reports linking her to the music reality series.

Jessica Ennis has revealed that she would love to sign up for the new series of The X Factor in a mentor role.

The London 2012 Olympic gold medalist has been linked with a position on the live shows of the latest series alongside fellow Team GB stars Mo Farah, Sir Chris Hoy and Bradley Wiggins – but denied anything had been confirmed.

"This is definitely news to me but it sounds like a brilliant idea," she told ITV's Daybreak this morning (20th August). "I'm a massive fan of X Factor so we'll see."

Asked if she would like to appear, she added: "Well yes, definitely, I think it's a great idea, yes."

Jessica continued: "Obviously before the Olympics I was just training so hard and making sure that I didn't miss anything so I had to turn a lot of things down and say no to things that I would loved to have done at the time.

"And now I can just relax now that I've got this medal and I can enjoy myself a bit now."

Sir Chris Hoy also took to his Twitter account today to quash any reports linking him to the show.

He tweeted: "Some amusing stories in press about me being a mentor on X-Factor; that's the first I've heard about it! #dontbelievethehype!!"

The new series of the music reality show aired this past weekend and received its worst audience figures on a launch for six years.
