Simon Cowell trying to persuade David Bowie to become X Factor judge

Simon Cowell has revealed that he wants David Bowie to become a judge on the X Factor.

The current panel on the TV talent show includes Gary Barlow, Louis Walsh, Nicole Scherzinger and Tulisa - but it seems he's got another star in mind.

Speaking to the Daily Mail, the music mogul revealed that he has already tried to persuade Bowie to become an X Factor judge - and he will keep knocking at the veteran's door until he gets a reply. Cowell said:

"I think if I could have anyone on The X Factor it would be David Bowie. It's no secret I've asked him, and he hasn't said yes yet, but I'll keep extending the invitation."

He continued: "Why Bowie? He's a legend. He's a great songwriter, he has massive influence on music today and he's 100 per cent credible. I'm a fan. Not just of his music but of him, the man. He's cool. Most of us aren't. Bowie is."

The news comes as rumours spread that Tulisa has been axed from the show - but no official confirmation has yet been issued on her X Factor future.
