In a surprise move from X Factor bosses, The Sun reports that Tom Daley along with Jessica Ennis and Mo Farah are being drafted in for an Olympics themed week, riding on the wave of their London 2012 success.
A source told The Sun: "Tom is great on the telly and he'd really like to get involved in all the live shows in some way."
"Ideas being kicked around at the moment include making him a roving reporter. He could take contestants out and about to film or be their personal trainer."
Tom is reportedly interested in teaming up with the show's presenter Dermot O'Leary too.
The source continued: "He's keen to work with Dermot. He reckons he is the best in the business."

Apparently Tom is looking at a £100,000 pay packet if the plan for him to join the show is approved.
However, his fee could end up as mere pocket money after it was reported that the Olympic diver is set to make a cool £1 million in sponsorship deals with Adidas, Nestle and Mini this year.
The Olympics themed week will reportedly see Team GB Olympians giving contestants advice while songs will include Olympic anthems such as 'Gold' by Spandau Ballet and 'Simply the Best' by Tina Turner.
Gold medallist Jessica Ennis has previously shown interest in joining the show saying: "I'm a massive fan of The X Factor. I definitely think it's a great idea."
When The X Factor returned to our screens two weeks ago, the shows premiere only managed to garner 8.1 million viewers, the lowest since 2006.
It seems that bosses are pulling out all the stops to boost ratings ahead of next month when it goes head- to- head with rival 'Strictly come Dancing'.
