The retired footballer and TV hard man - who released debut album "Respect" in 2002 - is said to be in discussions with bosses at both ITV and production company Thames regarding an appearance on the upcoming revamped edition of Simon Cowell's talent show.

An insider told the Daily Star Online: "Vinnie looks all set to take part in the celebrity edition of "The X Factor". Talks are ongoing and the details haven't been agreed but it's more than likely he will make the final line-up.
