With Simon Cowell returning to the judging panel, alongside Cheryl Cole, it would seem the music mogul is pulling strings for some A-list guests.
Madonna has never appeared on any kind of talent show before, but it seems the queen of pop is set to make her debut this autumn.
A source told The Sun: “It’s looking very hopeful Madonna will perform, possibly in November on one of the live shows.
“There are a lot of big names releasing music at that time, but she’s absolutely the number one name we are trying to secure.”
They added: “She needs her next album to be a success in the UK and a performance on ITV in front of 12 million people would be the best platform.”
