Kim Kardashian has been tipped for a VERY big career change

We really, really hope this is true…

It looks like Kim Kardashian could be moving from one reality show to another with the news that Simon Cowell is chasing her to be a judge for the next series of The X Factor.

Simon's long-time BFF Sinitta apparently put the idea in his head, and now the X Factor boss is keen to get Kim on board. Speaking to the Daily Star, Sinitta said that the idea of Kim as a judge excites her "quite a lot."

The news comes just weeks after ITV bosses revealed that there were big changes ahead for the show, and veteran judge Louis Walsh announced he'd come to the end of his X Factor journey.

"I've done 11 seasons and that's a long time in television – I don't think I'll be going back," he said on TV3's Seven O'Clock Show last week. 

Dermot O'Leary also announced he would be stepping down as presenter after seven years, with Olly Murs hotly tipped to replace him.

X Factor's executive producer Richard Holloway also said that there will be "some surprises" this year in terms of judges, but that Simon's place on the panel is of course "safe."

Although Kim's family has no experience with the UK version of the show, Khloé did present the US version for one season alongside Mario Lopez.

We reckon Kim would do an incredible job as judge – we can see some spats ahead between her and Cheryl, though!
