TV’s Mr Grumpypants is apparently prepared to spend what ever it takes to get Lily Allen to take over his chair on the X Factor.

 

A source told The Sun, "Lily was flattered to get Simon's call. It's a big job and an honour to be asked. But she's not convinced.

 

"She has tried to take a step back from the limelight over the last six months and doesn't want to be thrust right back into the madness of the showbiz pantomime that comes with the show.

 

"She doesn't need the money or the hassle at this stage in her life. Maybe in a few years' time when circumstances change she will be more receptive."

 

Lily’s definitely got the credentials to back up being a judge she one a Brit for Best Female last year and has won three Ivor Novello Awards for song writing.

 

What do you think? Could Lily do it? More importantly should Lily do it?

Prepare yourself for a big aaaaaw because Matt Damon sad lovely things about how he met his wife when he appeared on The Ellen DeGeneres Show.

 

Matt revealed how he met his wife of eight years while filming Stuck On You in Miami,

 

"I had never really hung out in Miami and one night in the middle of the shoot, the crew, a couple guys, said, 'We're going to get a beer somewhere.' I said, 'I'm not really into it.' They said, 'Come on,' and kind of dragged me along.

 

"We ended up at a bar where my wife was the bartender. I literally saw her across a crowded room... and eight years and four kids later, that's my life.

 

"I don't know how else our paths would have crossed if that didn't happen... The moral is that when you're tired, suck it up and go to the bar, because you might meet your wife."

 

That’s just so lovely, is it too early to go to a bar now?

She has done it again, no not ruined a perfectly good song with some rapping but got even more tattoos even though Simon Cowell told her she can’t.

 

This brings the tiny X Factor contestant’s total tattoos to an impressive seven, mirroring her celebrity mentor Cheryl Cole. We wonder if she will beat someone up in the loos next and then date a footballer?

 

Cher posted a picture of her new tattoos on Twitter with the message 'Happy birthday Uncle Boo, missing you. New tattoo. Xxxx.'

 

The tattoos are in memory of her late uncle Edward 'Boo Boo' Smith, who died last year after being tricked into taking a heroin substitute.
