The new series of the TV show is apparently keen to sign up stars from the London 2012 Olympic Games.

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".

The athlete stunned sports fans earlier this month when he won the 5000m and 10,000m gold medals at the Olympic Stadium.

A source told The Sun that it is hoped several Olympic stars can take part in an Olympic-themed special when the live shows of The X Factor begin later in the series.

"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."

Mo Farah was one of Team GB's top Olympic stars at London 2012:



The X Factor returns tonight with new judge Nicole Scherzinger joining Tulisa Contostavlos, Gary Barlow and Louis Walsh on the panel.

Speaking to Capital FM, Tulisa played down a spat between her and Louis Walsh, saying he loved to "wind me up".
