Simon Cowell has picked Khloe Kardashian to host US X Factor, according to reports.

The American reality TV star will present the show alongside former Saved By The Bell actor Mario Lopez, according to

The news isn't official, but several websites are reporting that an announcement will be made later this week, and that the pair will be seen on the show from November.

Khloe had previously been rumoured to be in the running to host the second series of Simon's show, which sees the TV mogul judging wannabe pop stars alongside LA Reid, Demi Lovato and Britney Spears.

Simon had hinted that she might be in with a shot, after telling Ellen DeGeneres on her chat show: "We have screen tested a load of people... It could be a Kardashian."

"I think that would work," he said. "I'm quite a fan of not putting [experienced] hosts on this show. Because I think it's going to give it a different dynamic. So we have to find people who have a great chemistry, but Khloe is definitely up there in running."

Last year the programme was hosted by Steve Jones but he lost his spot in the cull which also saw Nicole Scherzinger and Paula Abdul leave the judging panel.
