Now Simon Cowell Wants Tom Jones For The X Factor Too
Talent show mogul wants to reunite veteran star with Rita Ora...
The pop legend was discarded by the BBC show at the 11th hour when new coaches Paloma Faith and Boy George were announced earlier this month.
And the corporation was left red-faced after Sir Tom took his grievances with the way his exit was handled public.
But the gap in his diary for the autumn could be partially filled with a bit of work for The X Factor instead.
Speaking to The Mirror, SiCo said: "Tom's come out of it well. I don't blame the BBC for the way they did it.
"We all get a bit paranoid at times but he was dignified. He can come on one of the home shows this year."
So hopefully we'll see Sir Tom acting as a guest judge with former colleague Rita at the "judges houses" stage of the contest this year.
