A source told The Mirror: “ITV approached him months ago to do I’m A Celebrity. He turned them down but in recent weeks they have come in again for him with a huge money offer.

“He met them to discuss it but now Simon is offering a place back on X Factor it seems unlikely he will be heading to Australia.”

The insider added: “He can earn a six-figure sum making a comeback on X Factor which doesn’t involve eating bugs or doing any horrible tasks of trials.”

Last week rumours were swirling that Simon wanted Louis to return for The X Factor live shows as a fifth judge however a show insider said it was just “speculation.”
