Kate Moss to join The X Factor?

Simon Cowell reportedly wants Kate Moss to appear on the next series of 'The X Factor'.

The 55-year-old music mogul has approached radio DJ Nick Grimshaw - a friend of the British model - to apply "gentle pressure" so she accepts a role at the judges' houses phase of the ITV talent show.

A source shared: "Although it's unlikely she would ever become a judge, Kate may help Grimmy choose final contestants at the judges houses.

"Kate is a huge fan of 'The X Factor'.

"Simon has asked Grimmy to put gentle pressure on her to take part."

Simon is said to have wanted Kate to appear on the show after seeing her excel on the Channel 4 observational documentary 'Gogglebox'.

The source told the Daily Star newspaper: "Simon knows Kate would never reveal the 'mystery' that makes up Moss by talking much on telly.

"But the chemistry between Grimmy and Kate could be a magic."

Meanwhile, it was revealed recently that Simon convinced Olly Murs to take up the presenting spot on 'The X Factor' over a curry.

The 'Troublemaker' singer - who will replace Dermot O'Leary in fronting the show alongside Caroline Flack - shared: "He asked if I wanted a curry and I said I love curry.

"So I go round to his house and he has all these amazing curries that have been home-made in his kitchens.

"There was a spicy chicken curry and a milder one, and all these dishes of chutneys and poppadoms and naan bread, a proper feast. And then at his end of the table there was this huge bowl of shepherd's pie.

"He said, 'I decided I didn't want curry in the end, so I'm having shepherd's pie. But I know you wanted curry'.

"So all these dishes were just for me and he had this minced beef!

"I had to work my way through all these different curries on my own and we had a good chat about the show."
