Cowell wants supermodel for TV show

Simon Cowell wants Kate Moss to join 'The X Factor'.

The 53-year-old music mogul is reportedly interested hiring Kate, 38, to style the contestants and keep them looking fashionable throughout the show.

A source revealed to the Daily Mirror newspaper: "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.

"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."

Simon plans to meet the show's executive producer Richard Holloway in the New Year after returning from a holiday in the Caribbean to talk about the next series.

A spokesman for Simon added that "no firm plans had been made" about Kate being involved but any changes will be announced after January's meetings.

It was previously reported that judges Tulisa Contostavlos, 24, and Gary Barlow, 41, face being axed from the panel after ratings dropped during this year's series and Gary has already shared his intentions to leave the show - stating that he may be too busy to take part.

He said: "I don't know if there is room in my diary for 'X Factor' next year, if I am honest."

Girls Aloud star Cheryl Cole is also rumoured to return as a judge on the ITV1 show after quitting in 2011 to join the US version - which she was fired from after filming began due to her strong Newcastle accent.
