Congleton Guardian: Ellie Goulding has been linked to The X Factor panel Ellie Goulding has been linked to The X Factor panel

Ellie Goulding is the latest star tipped for a spot on The X Factor judging panel.

The Burn singer has apparently caught the eye of show boss Simon Cowell and he is said to be keen on her taking up a seat alongside him and returning judge Cheryl Cole.

Louis Walsh apparently let Ellie's name slip, telling The Sun on Sunday: "I've heard Ellie Goulding. I just hope it's a girl."

However, a show source has said there are "a lot of people being discussed", adding that Louis "isn't involved in finding the fourth judge".

Other names linked to the new series have included Fergie from the Black Eyes Peas and Olly Murs.

Reports that Ellie is tipped for The X Factor come days after she hinted she is getting tired of touring.

She told Billboard: "I need to sort my life out. And if I don't do it soon, I may as well just be forever on the road, because that's what it feels like.

"As much as I love what I do, and music is obviously everything to me, I'm being pulled home, and I've got to do that soon, I think," she continued.
