THE X Factor is going for gold

 Olympics hero Mo, 29, is poised to be a “mentor” to wannabes in the ITV1 show’s latest run, which starts tonight.

Simon Cowell has been wooing the double gold medal winner to appear so the new series captures the “spirit” of London 2012.  The top secret plan will see a special Olympics-themed spectacular when live X Factor rounds begin, a source revealed. Fellow Team GB members will join Mo, who thrilled the nation by winning the 10,000 and 5,000 metres. The source said last night: “Teaming up with our athletes means they can offer training and pep talks. “People like Mo know about dedication and hard work. It’s only right we invite them to help us shape our future pop stars.”  -Thesun
