'Skyfall' hitmaker Adele has reportedly agreed to join 'The X Factor' as a judge - but has told boss Simon Cowell it will have to wait until she has released and toured her upcoming new album
Adele has agreed to become a judge on 'The X Factor'.
The 'Skyfall' singer is reportedly set to join the panel of the TV talent show - although she won't commit until she has finished working on her new album, so fans shouldn't expect to see her until at least 2016.
An insider told the Daily Star Sunday newspaper: "Adele is a huge fan of the show and has agreed to be a judge. Simon wanted her to join him and [Cheryl Cole] on this year's panel.
"Although she has turned him down due to album commitments she has promised to sign up as a judge in the next few years.
"She really wants to join the show, even if it is just for a one-off year. Although no contract has been signed, Adele has made it clear to Simon she's up for it when the time is right."
The Grammy Award-winning star is expecting to release her third record later this year, with plans to tour in 2015 and join 'The X Factor' once she's available.
The source said: "Adele hopes to release her third album. She will then take out 2015 to tour but said an 'X Factor' spot for 2016 is possible, with 2017 more likely."
