'The X Factor' choreographer Brian Friedman has hinted that there may be a Rolling Stones week on the show this year

Brian Friedman has hinted there could be week dedicated to The Rolling Stones on 'The X Factor' as well as a performance from the band.

The show's choreographer refused to give away too many details but has teased that bosses are toying with the idea of adding the rockers to the wheel of themes, which dictates what songs the contestants sing, as well as book them in to rock the stage to plug their new album 'Blue & Lonesome'.

Speaking to BANG Showbiz, Brian said: "If we got them [The Rolling Stones] on I'd take a selfie and give it to my mom! You know there is one theme that's left undone, there's one theme that has not been put on the wheel because we're still locking that one down. So that could be the theme, I'd be happy to have them on the show, that would be amazing - go big!"

This won't be the first time The Rolling Stones have graced 'The X Factor' stage as the band's guitarist Ronnie Wood performed 'Where Do Broken Hearts Go' with One Direction, who are now on a hiatus, in 2014.

But, despite loving his time on stage with the boy band, it seems the 69-year-old musician has had a change of heart over the last two years as he recently claimed shows like 'The X Factor' are driving people to suicide.

He said: "I think it's a bit of a stiff thing to ask a brand-new artist. I mean, apart from being nervous and playing in front of a panel, they play in front of millions and millions of people. It's bad for their ego if they don't make it, or if they make a mistake, I mean it's magnified so much more. I'm amazed more people don't commit suicide, do you know what I mean?"
