London: Simon Cowell`s ‘X Factor’ stage manager has reportedly been roped in to direct the television coverage of the royal wedding on Friday.

Diccon Ramsay, 27, will aim to film every detail as Prince William weds Kate Middleton.

He`ll effectively signal her walk down the Westminster Abbey aisle.

An amazing array of technical wizardry will be used to bring TV coverage of the wedding bang up to date - as two billion viewers tune in.

Royal aides have demanded the same gloss and quality seen on X Factor.

Ramsay is used to employing the hi-tech equipment to film the X Factor`s dramatic highs and lows.

"They wanted the guy from the biggest show on earth to help make the wedding the greatest event in the history of television. He``s on it,” the Sun quoted a source from Simon Cowell``s telly smash as saying.
