X Factor 2016: Noel Gallagher to join the panel this year?

Noel Gallagher

Noel Gallagher says he may be up for joining The X Factor now Cheryl is gone.

Although the Oasis rocker says he it would still require Simon Cowell to make him a "psychedelic offer".

Noel has been approached a number of times in the past to join The X Factor, with show sources claiming he's been on Simon Cowell's wish list for years.

In 2011, Noel reportedly turned down a £1 million offer while in 2013 he was said to have rejected a new deal worth twice as much.

Now in 2016 there are again spaces to fill on the panel with Cheryl Cole and Nick Grimshaw having quit.

Speaking to the Daily Star newspaper (via The Sun), Noel suggested that he would now consider signing up with Cheryl out, but only if X Factor boss Simon makes him a BIG offer.

Noel said: "Simon Cowell - who I like and I've got nothing against him or his television show - would have to make me the most psychedelic offer that he's ever made anyone in the history of showbusiness for me to consider it.

"I've got better things to do on a Saturday night than be sat live on the television."

Right now the panel for The X Factor this year remains unconfirmed with lots of rumours and speculation.

Louis Walsh, Rita Ora, Nicole Scherzinger and Sharon Osbourne have all been tipped to make appearances.
