The founder of the Rage Against The Machine for Christmas No.1 Facebook campaign group has claimed he is not aware of a job offer from Simon Cowell.

Jon Morter told Digital Spy he and wife Tracy have "not accepted or refused anything".

Following 'Killing In The Name''s victory over Joe McElderry's 'The Climb', Cowell told the Daily Mirror he offered the pair roles within his SyCo record company.

However, Jon Morter told Digital Spy: "Our inboxes for Facebook, Twitter, emails have gone stratospheric. So to be honest we haven't a clue if anyone has offered us anything. We certainly have not accepted or refused anything."

Joe McElderry knocked Rage Against The Machine off the top of the UK singles chart yesterday (December 27) to claim the Number One spot for the New Year.

Meanwhile get the current issue of NME – on UK newsstands now – for an exclusive interview with Simon Cowell.
