COULD cycling champion Bradley Wiggins be going for gold in the singing stakes?

The Olympic gold medallist, whose wife Catherine hails form Shevington, has dismissed rumours he could appear on ITV talent show The X Factor.

When asked about the idea of Britain’s sporting heroes acting as mentors for a one-off Olympic-themed show, he told The Daily Telegraph: “Let’s not talk about The X Factor. Compared to the Olympics, everywhere you went the country was on a high and as athletes it was phenomenal to see that, then you see X Factor and it’s like ‘oh God, everyone’s got to put up with that all winter now.’

Sir Chris Hoy admitted he had never heard such rumours, but Jessica Ennis said she would love to appear on the show.
