Simon Cowell and Syco have asked Ed Sheeran to write a song for the winner of X Factor this year.
After Louisa Johnson failed to make an impact in the charts last year with Bob Dylan's 'Forever young', Simon turned to Ed Sheeran to write the Christmas single.
The track is reportedly a trademark Ed acoustic ballad,
A source told The Sun “All the remaining contestants have heard the track and it works for the majority.“
"They can’t believe potentially their first ever single will be written by Ed.“
However, it may not be used should Honey G or 5 After Midnight win the show. Other options may have to be considered.
X Factor continues this weekend with a MOVIE theme.
