Simon Cowell wants Big Brother presenters Emma Willis and Rylan Clark to host The X Factor next year, apparently.

Although this year's series of the talent show isn't even over yet, there are already rumours about big changes for the 2016 series. Simon has already revealed the room auditions will make a comeback, but will hosts Olly Murs and Caroline Flack be replaced too?

A source told the Daily Star that Si has his eye on Big Brother hosts Emma and Rylan and said: "It would cause fireworks poaching Emma and Rylan off Big Brother but Simon usually gets what he wants."

Well that last part is true! Simon has a history of bringing hosts of other popular shows to work for him, Alesha Dixon was on Strictly before her stint on the Britain's Got Talent judging panel, and Rita Ora sat in one of those big red chairs on The Voice before going to work with Simon on The X Factor.

However earlier today on This Morning, Rylan admitted he hadn't even heard about his supposed new job until he saw it in the paper along with everyone else, and reckons Olly and Caroline are 'great' hosts already.

He said: "Emma texted me this morning saying 'have you seen the paper?' So I stopped at the garage and got my coffee and there it was, I saw it.

"Look, if there is any truth in this, it's the first I've heard of it….but I think Olly and Caroline have done a great job."

If Rylan did land the job, he'd be returning to the show that made him famous, although it seems like he's been on our TV screens forever, his career began back in 2012 when he finished fifth on the show.

Simon hasn't confirmed it either way, insisting that he'll listen to the audiences views to find out what worked well and what might need switching up. He said: "We will make changes next year. When I go through the research we have to listen to what people liked and take it into account."

Before we start over mulling potential changes for next years show too much, there's the very exciting 2015 X Factor final weekend to get through first, and the line-up is a total dream!
