Yes, you heard correctly, Simon Cowell wants MODEL Kate Moss for the next series of the SINGING competition.

But before you begin to ponder what exactly it is that Kate Moss knows about music, Simon has his eye on her as a stylist for the show.

Ah, that makes more sense.

A source told the Daily Mirror: "Simon is looking at ways of refreshing the show and one idea he will bring to the table is getting Kate Moss on board.

"He knows how important the styling of the contestants is and having a supermodel and a world-famous name on board would certainly raise the bar.”

So what exactly is it that Kate will be doing?

Well it would seem that Kate’s years of industry expertise will be put to good use not only during the show but for their inevitable post X Factor careers of its contestants.

"Kate could give the contestants advice and ideas on how they want to look and also how to look after themselves and still look great in the years ahead,” the source added.

It has been rumoured since the end of the last series that Simon is looking to shake up the show after it gained less than desirable ratings.

Spice girl Mel B and former judges Sharon Osbourne and Cheryl Cole have all been linked to the next series.

Tulisa and Gary Barlow’s places on the judging panel are apparently looking to be in the most jeopardy after Nicole Scherzinger shone through on this year’s series winning with James Arthur.

And let’s face it, after nine years on the show Simon Cowell doesn’t look like he’ll be getting rid of veteran judge Louis Walsh anytime soon.
