Choreographer on ITV1’s compulsive talent show The X Factor has let it slip that superstar Madonna and Robbie Williams are to act as mentors to the contestants on the new series of the show.

Brain Friedman also revealed that Simon Cowell had also hired warbling legend Whitney Houston and pop pixie Rihanna.

A source said: “Brian is really excited about this year’s show because there are some great artists involved.

“He is proud to be part of it and admires Simon’s ability to attract A-listers.”

Although the coup hasn’t been announced officially, it suggests ITV1 are pulling out all the stops to beat BBC rival Strictly Come Dancing in the ratings.

The new series of The X Factor begins next Saturday.
