And Kate's love of karaoke is legendary.
But, while Moss has made millions voguing in front of the camera, the famously interview-shy Croydoner normally keeps things zipped — so we're struggling to imagine her dressing down X Factor hopefuls' fashion sense on live television.
Still, if Cowell can persuade the model to open her trap and start motor-mouthing contestants (with particular reference to the inexplicable proliferation of onesies on the show), it will definitely make Saturday night TV worth staying in for.
