Mo Farah and other stars of Team GB good be set to appear on the new series of The X Factor, according to reports.

Music mogul Simon Cowell is apparently keen to capture the spirit of the London 2012 Olympic Games and bring on board Mo as a "mentor".

"Teaming up with our athletes means they can offer training and pep talks," the source said.

"People like Mo know about dedication and hard work. It's only right we invite them to help us shape our future pop stars."
