Jessica Ennis Rumoured to be a Guest Mentor on the X Factor

Our favourite Olympic poster girl, Jessica Ennis got us all excited today as she said she would be happy to be a guest mentor on X Factor.

In an interview on this morning’s Lorraine show on ITV, the gold medal Olympian claimed she hadn’t been approached by Simon Cowell but that she would be happy to do it, saying:

This is definitely news to me, but it sounds like a brilliant idea, I’m a massive fan of X Factor

With X Factor opening ratings down more than two million year-on-year, bosses seem to be trying to capitalise on the London 2012 Olympics hype as it has been rumoured that double gold winner Mo Farah may also have a role on the show, as well as cyclists Sir Chris Hoy and Bradley Wiggins.

We definitely hope that Simon gets on the phone to Jessica Ennis sharpish, we would love to see her on the show, and we bet she could give Mel B a run for her money any day.
