X Factor's new host Olly Murs has said that Rita Ora would be a great addition as a judge.

The Poison singer is hotly tipped to join the judging panel of the ITV show following her stint on the rival BBC show The Voice UK earlier this year.

"I'll be honest. I think Rita would be a good one because she's done The Voice," said Murs.

Bookmakers William Hill has suspended betting on the X Factor judges following a run of bets on Ora.

The 24-year-old's odds fell from 5/2 to 4/6 before the market was suspended yesterday.

"We saw a similar gamble shortly before Dannii Minogue joined the panel and it looks like Rita has got the job," said spokesman Rupert Adams.
