The 'Under The Sun' singer wants her reality star mate to offer advice to this year's contestants.
Cheryl Cole is reportedly trying to convince Simon Cowell to bring in Kim Kardashian as a guest mentor on The X Factor UK this year.
The 'Call My Name' star, who returns to the show this summer, is known to be close friends with the Kardashian clan, and wants the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star to offer advice to contestants on how to deal with fame.
"Cheryl's been busy convincing Simon that, while Kim isn't a singer, she'd be a great mentor because she knows how to handle fame," a source told the Daily Star this week. 'The idea is that Kim would fly over and give special media training to the acts towards the end of the show.
"And obviously Simon realises that the inevitable publicity would do the ratings no had,." they added..
Earlier this year it was confirmed that Cheryl will rejoin the show for the 2014 series alongside Simon Cowell, though the final two panel spots have yet to be filled.
