Cheryl Cole and Britney Spears are one step closer to working together, thanks to will.i.am!

He's reportedly approached Britney to suggest that the pair get together for a duet, after rumours earlier this year.

Will and Britney worked together during the 'judges houses' stage of The X Factor USA, and  that's when he brought it up.

A source told The Sun: "There were rumours earlier this summer that the pair were going to duet but it wasn’t until this week that Britney and Will had the discussion. He’s been trying to get them together since before he came on board as Cheryl’s manager. He told Britney he was writing a great new track and wanted his ‘two favourite girls’ to record it together at his home studio. He's been trying to get them together since before he came on board as Cheryl's manager."

We would LOVE to see them work together! Fingers crossed… BS
