It's not a word that we imagine Simon Cowell hears very often, but Olympic champion cyclist Bradley Wiggins has said no to a job mentoring on The X Factor.
Simon Cowell is hoping to line up several Olympic stars to inspire this year’s X Factor finalists, but he’ll have to do with out Bradley and his sideburns,
“Let’s not talk about The X Factor,” he’s said to The Mirror. “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 The X Factor and it’s like, ‘Oh God, everyone’s got to put up with that all winter now.’”
However, an X Factor spokesperson had confirmed that there is interest from Mo Farah, Greg Rutherford, Rebecca Adlington and Tom Daley.
What do you think about The X Factor cashing on the Olympics glory?
The first Inbetweeners movie was such a huge success it was only going to be a matter of time before a sequel followed.
Now, co-creator Damon Beesley has confirmed he's working on a second movie with writing partner Iain Morris,
“I don't want to give too much away at this stage” he reveals to The Sun, “but yes we have been developing an idea for a sequel.”
It's extra good news for Inbetweeners stars Joe Thomas, James Buckley, Simon Bird and Blake Harrison who could earn as much as £2.5 million each if they reprise their roles.
The first movie banked £45 million and was made with just a £3 million budget.
If you’re worried about a second film not living up to the first, Damon has assured fans they’re working with everyone involved in the show “to make sure that we can do justice to a follow-up”

We’re not the only ones who felt bad for Cher Lloyd when we heard that she was pelted with bottles full of urine at V Festival over the weekend.
Professor Green and even Example (who’s not exactly Cher’s biggest fan) have tweeted in defence of the X Factor singer
“Someone needs to have a word with themselves... how f**king disgusting can people be? Chin up cherlloyd,” Professor Green wrote, before adding, "It's easier to walk away from a stage if you don't like an artist than it is to fill a bottle with piss and launch it, surely?"
And even Example felt sorry for Cher. “Whilst i'm not a fan of Cher Lloyd I don't think anyone deserves bottles of piss thrown at them. Stick to plain old booing in future people."
As the Pro said, chin up, Cher!
