The Sun are reporting that Britney Spears is keen to be a judge on US X Factor.
An ever reliable 'pal' told them: "She's a huge fan of The X Factor and thinks it's the perfect time for her to be a judge," before pointing out: "She knows all about the ups and downs of pop fame. And with her schedule relatively clear she has the time to dedicate to a different project."
It wasn't just this 'pal' who was keen to discuss whether she would be replacing one of the two axed judges, but also a 'music industry insider'.
"Britney has had a tough few years but this would put her back at the very top. She would be great for the show and it could be great for her," he/she said.
