Talent show tsar Simon Cowell has his eyes on a top attraction for the next instalment of US X Factor.
He is courting none other than Britney Spears in the hope that the superstar will accompany him on the judging panel.
Reports suggest that Simon has offered the pop princess a $15 million pay check to join the show.
And the man himself confirmed to TMZ that he would be delighted to have Britney on board.
"I would love to have her on the show,” he said. “I think she would be a fascinating person to sit next to."
