Bass guitar legend Paul McCartney is being lined up to appear on the final of the X Factor, according to a press report.

X Factor supremo Simon Cowell has opened talks with the former Beatle about performing on the talent show's finale, reports the Mirror.

In addition to a performance by McCartney, the final would have a Beatles theme if the bass guitar player accepts Cowell's offer, a show insider told the Mirror.

The source added: "Everybody knows the Beatles wrote some of the best songs in history so it would be a sensational end for the series."

An appearance by a man widely regarded as one of the greatest songwriters of all time on the X Factor would be sure to provoke a mixed reaction.

While the talent show attracts impressive ratings for ITV, it has come in for criticism from some within the music industry.

DJ and singer Moby recently told Live From Studio Five: "I think it debases music and cheapens everything that I care about."
