Snoop Dog has suggested that he could end up as a judge on The X Factor.

The American rapper has claimed he's been in talks to appear on the show having had chats with boss Simon Cowell.

He said this week: “Never rule out me being a judge, I have had more than one discussion with Simon.”

The controversial singer was previously BANNED from the UK between 2007 and 2010 following an airport scuffle between his team and police at Heathrow.

While Snoop is probably an unlikely candidate for a spot on the show, he has worked with Simon Cowell in the past and helped to the launch the career of former UK finalist Cher Lloyd in the US.

Snoop even featured in her 2012 single Want U Back which went on to sell over 2 million copies in the States, although only managed to trouble the Top 30 here in the UK.

Speaking about his plans for The X Factor 2015, Simon teased this week: "There are elements we can make more exciting. I might mix up the panel too – you never know.”

The show will back on TV later this year on ITV.
