The new co-host of The X Factor Olly Murs has said Rita Ora would be a great addition as a judge on the hit ITV show.
The Poison singer is hotly tipped to join the judging panel following her stint on rival BBC talent show The Voice, with X Factor supremo Simon Cowell expected to announce the final line-up shortly.
Murs said at Capital's Summertime Ball, "I'll be honest. I think Rita would be a good one because she's done The Voice."
Bookmakers William Hill has suspended betting on the X Factor judges following a run of bets on Ora. The 24-year-old's odds fell from 5/2 to 4/6 before the market was paused at 10.20am this morning.
"We saw a similar gamble shortly before Dannii Minogue joined the panel and it looks like Rita has got the job," William Hill spokesman Rupert Adams predicted.
Cheryl Fernandez-Versini is tipped to return to her seat, alongside BBC Radio 1 DJ Nick Grimshaw, Cowell and Ora.
Murs, who is taking over from Dermot O'Leary to co-host the show with presenter Caroline Flack, appeared to confirm Grimshaw could also be on the panel when he added: "She's got a great personality, she's fun and I think her and Grimmy get on well."
The 31-year-old Troublemaker singer said he cannot wait to step into O'Leary's shoes and present the main show, after presenting the ITV2 spin-off show in 2011 and 2012. He quit the role in the 2013 series to focus on his music and was replaced by Matt Richardson.
Murs, who is dating model Francesca Thomas, also brushed off rumours of any romance with Flack.
"I'm a flirty guy regardless. We have great chemistry, it wasn't just about flirting. We get on really well and we're best mates off camera," the asnake-hipped singer explained.
