Katy Perry is in talks about having her own TV show, according to reports.

The California Gurls star – who was a guest judge on the weekend’s X Factor on ITV1 – is having discussions with ITV2.

Zai Bennett, controller of ITV2, ITV3 and ITV4, said: “Katy Perry is a target for us currently. She’s brilliant, a bullseye person. We are talking to her management about various shows.”

He said at the Edinburgh International Television Festival: “I very much doubt it would be an observational documentary.”

Speaking about the celebrities who star in fly-on-the-wall documentaries, he said: “There’s a bar… I always used to say it’s Girls Aloud and above.

“We look for people who have a public persona, a certain amount of press already.”

The controller said The Saturdays’ new ITV2 show 24/7 had been in the pipeline for 18 months but the broadcaster had waited to film it until the group had a big enough profile.
