Music mogul Simon Cowell reportedly wants Rita Ora and Cheryl Cole on the UK's X Factor judging panel in 2014.

Speaking to The Sun newspaper, a source said: “Rita is at the top of his list with Cheryl. He has been a massive fan of hers for a while.

“He has offered it to her before but she didn’t think the time was right. Now the ball is very much in her court.

“Simon is planning a huge shake-up next year, as it’s highly likely he’ll be back. Rita and Cheryl would be his dream team.”

Cowell offered Cole a chance to return to the panel for British version in 2011, but she refused. Meanwhile, Ora was a guest judge on last year's show.
