The Team GB stars will reportedly join Mo Farah for the new series of the music reality show.

Jessica Ennis and fellow Team GB Olympic stars Bradley Wiggins and Sir Chris Hoy have apparently signed up to join Mo Farah for a special episode of the X Factor 2012.

The gold medalists at London 2012 will join the show's contestants in what a source told The Sun promises to be "a spectacular celebration of sport and music."

The episode will air during the live shows of the series which started again this past weekend and features the athletes helping mentor the contestants with training and pep talks.

All four Olympians were the stars of the Games helping the Great Britain medal tally hit 65 with an impressive 29 golds.

Speaking about the inclusion of long distance star Mo Farah, the source explained his work ethic was vital in shaping the future of music.
