Noel Gallagher
X Factor bosses have reportedly approached Noel Gallagher for the second time with a '“name your price' offer to join the judging panel.

Noel Gallagher has reportedly been offered £2m to sign up as a judge on the X Factor.

According to the Sun, show bosses have approached the 45-year-old former Oasis guitarist for the second time with a "name your price" offer to take a seat on the judging panel.

Simon Cowell is said to have been trying to sign up Gallagher for years because he thinks his straight talk will inject some much needed spark back into the ailing ITV talent show.

The 53-year-old media mogul recently put his money where his mouth is and allegedly sent Gallagher's management a fresh offer believed to be around the £2m mark.

A source told the paper: "Simon is determined to get Noel on board. He sees him as his natural replacement as the real alpha male on the panel.

"He thinks Noel would be ideal, with his music knowledge, straight talking and rapier wit."

"Noel's daughter, Anais, is a huge fan of One Direction and X Factor, so she'll be nagging him to say yes."

In 2011 Gallagher said he was not keen on appearing on the show. But he did admit that he would could be convinced to do it for £1m.

"I don't really want to do it. But a million pounds for six months' work? That's good money if you can get it," he said.

Gallagher could replace veteran judge Louis Walsh on this year's panel, with Take That's Gary Barlow expected to return with Nicole Scherzinger. Former judge Sharon Osbourne is reportedly lined up to replace Tulisa Contostavlos.
