Rita Ora On X Factor: 'It's Not The Right Time'
However, star says SiCo gave her 'the look' when talking XF at The Brits...
However, the Shine Ya Light singer - who acted as a guest judge on last year's series of the show - did hint to Digital Spy that SiCo gave her 'that look' as if to hint at a future on the series.
Speaking of the talent show, the 22-year old told the website: "I actually met Simon finally at the Brits after all the things we did for X Factor.
"He came up to me, he said, 'Thank you so much for doing that for the show'. I said 'Yeah, of course, it's fine', and then he looked at me, he gave me that look like there's something coming but he never asked me."
When quizzed about 'the look' Cowell gave her, Rita joked: "I'm like, what does that even mean? Like, 'I'll call you later', or, 'I'm never going to call you again?' Which one is it?"
Despite seeming to impress the music mogul, the R.I.P. hitmaker went on to add that she doesn't think it's 'her time' to join the XF panel on a permanent basis just yet.
Ora explained: "I think right now I don't think it would be the right time to do anything X Factor.
"I'd love to come back in and out and be a guest judge but if I was to take on the full role it would come from a place where I feel I'm satisfied with my career and right now I've got a lot to do."
