Mariah Carey in talks for The X Factor

NEW JOB: Mariah Carey

MARIAH CAREY is reportedly in talks to join The X Factor UK judging panel.

The Dreamlover singer is being lined up as a replacement for Nicole Scherzinger on the singing competition, according to the Daily Mirror.

Producers at ITV have been in talks with the pop diva after the former Pussycat Doll is reportedly stalling over signing a new contract.

"Mariah really wants to do it. Nicole is not committing at the moment, although she did meet up with Simon Cowell this week," a source told the newspaper.

Carey has previously served as a judge on American Idol, and as filming prepares to start in , the 47-year-old music icon is said to be "really keen".

While rumours continue to float about Carey's possible role on the show, a spokesman for the X Factor said: "No formal decision has yet been made regarding the full judging panel for The X Factor 2017."
