TV bosses are hard at work searching for stars to appear on this autumn’s big entertainment shows.
Celebrity X Factor – the revamped version of Simon Cowell’s ITV hit – has now reportedly signed up three rugby legends to make up a boyband.
A report in The Mirror suggests that Scottish rugby player Thom Evans, Una Healey’s ex Ben Foden, and cello playing Levi Davis are going to make up the supergroup.
Thom, 34, used to sing in Twen2y4se7en, who once supported Peter Andre, Westlife and McFly.
The ex-model also appeared in the 2014 series of Strictly and was voted off in week four.

Elsewhere, former England player Ben Foden is also set to appear.
Ben, 33, split with The Saturdays singer Una Healey last year after he admitted cheating on her.
Finally, 20-year-old Bath player Levi was in a band called Majesti, with members he met at the British and Irish Modern Music Institute in Bristol.
Cello-playing Levi is also looking to release some of his solo work later this year.
Ex-Strictly dancer Brendan Cole is also being lined up to swap his dancing shoes for a microphone in the show.
According to reports, he’s set to join Love Actually child star, Olivia Olson on the line-up.
The rugby lads are set to take on a Love Island supergroup including Eyal Booker, Samira Mighty, Wes Nelson and Zara McDermott.
