Britney Spears for second 'Glee' tribute episode?

By
Britney Spears will receive a second tribute episode on Glee later this year, a report has claimed.

The 'Oops... I Did It Again' superstar, who officially joined Simon Cowell's X Factor USA yesterday, previously made a cameo in the musical comedy's second season.

The new Spears special, set to feature eight of the singer's songs, will be the fourth season's second instalment in the autumn, according to Entertainment Weekly.

Though not signed up to appear, Fox bosses are apparently attempting to seal a last-minute deal with the 30-year-old.

However, the instalment will not focus on Heather Morris's character of Brittany as the first tribute did.

Spears's original Glee edition remains one of the show's most-watched episodes ever.

Executives at Fox believe that a Spears-themed night will boost the network's Thursday night ratings, with X Factor airing before Glee.
