Lily Allen has laughed off rumours that she could become a judge on The X Factor.
The Brit award-winning singer has been tipped to join Take That's Gary Barlow on the panel if Simon Cowell and Cheryl Cole were to move Stateside for the launch of the US version.
But Lily tweeted: "Nice to know that I'm 80% confirmed to be a judge on X Factor, anyone thinking about running it by me? Maybe that's the 20% bit..."
The Smile star said she could be tempted to join - on one condition.
"I'll only do it if there's a 'pop songs in a foreign language week'," she added.
Despite Lily's comments, bookies still reckon she has a good shot at the chair, ahead of former favourites Nicole Scherzinger and Katy Perry.
"Lily has attempted to rule herself out of the running for the job, but we think that the X Factor bigwigs will pull out all the stops in order to get her on the show," said William Hill's spokesman Joe Crilly.
