According to The Sun, Michael Jackson has agreed to make a guest appearance on The X Factor.
Apparently the singer will give advice to contestants and comment on their performance.
An insider said, "We've got some huge names but Michael Jackson really is a sensational signing. He is a truly global, worldwide superstar. And this will be his first TV appearance in Britain since the Martin Bashir interview. Given his background with ITV, it's even more astonishing that he agreed to do it."
Jackson has not appeared on UK television since he was interviewed by Martin Bashir for ITV1 documentary Living With Michael Jackson, which aired in 2003. The film was one factor which led to Jackson's trial for child molestation in 2005.
Girls Aloud, Celine Dion, Rihanna, Kylie, Shayne Ward, Leona Lewis, Westlife and Mariah Carey will also be making appearances according to the report.
