Bruno Mars could be headlining next year's Super Bowl halftime show according to Entertainment Weekly, with the NFL apparently keen to get him back on the stage in the same spot he took at 2014's event.

The 2016 show will mark the Super Bowl's 50th anniversary, so rumours about who they want onboard have been flying around for quite some time.

In 2014 Mars became the most-watched halftime act in history, but his crown was stolen this year by Katy Perry who headlined with special guests including Lenny Kravitz and Missy Elliot.

Representatives for both Mars and the NFL haven't yet commented on the speculation, and the singer has remained silent on his social media accounts.

Chatting to Ellen DeGeneres in the past about the show, he said: "As soon as we got the call I was thinking about ideas and you know, how are we going to pull this off?

"Like how do you say no? 'Nah, nope I'm good.' I know it was early; it's very early in my career. I've only got two albums so I don't have the, like, legacy or anything like that, but, you know, tomorrow's not promised, Ellen, so I had to go for it."

The Super Bowl 50 takes place on February 7, 2016.
