X Factor 2014: Alesha Dixon coy over rumours - but Simon Cowell wants her!

X Factor boss Simon Cowell has admitted that he reckons Alesha Dixon would make a good judge on the show.

It was claimed at the weekend that Alesha was being touted as possible star on this year's X Factor panel, alongside Simon and Cheryl Cole.

“Alesha has been seriously considered as the fourth judge. She’s part of the Syco family and Simon is a huge fan,” a source told The Sun on Sunday newspaper at the weekend.

But Alesha herself was coy about the rumours when we spoke to the pair earlier today.

We met up with the reality telly judging duo in a sunny London as the BGT panel launched the new series of the show, which begins this weekend.

Speaking of the rumours about her joining The X Factor, Alesha told us: "Its always very flattering when your time is put to anything like that.

"To be honest, I've not given it much thought."

Meanwhile, Simon said of the speculation: "Alesha I think she would be a great judge on the show, but whether she'd want to as she likes doing Got Talent."

"We thought about her two years ago for the X Factor."
