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."
