X Factor UK: Mel B Confirmed as the 4th Judge, Joining Simon, Cheryl and Louis

Something SCARY is coming to the X Factor …

This is how Syco finally ended months of speculation. Thank goodness.

Scary (and grumpy) Spice Mel B takes the empty seat of Sharon Osbourne. Louis Walsh is returning for his 11th season. Simon Cowell took the empty seat of Gary Barlow months ago and the return of Cheryl Cole signaled the end of Nicole Scherzinger on X Factor UK’s judging panel.

The new team will soon start taping the auditions. I’m reading they will be in Manchester on Monday.


“Feisty” Mel B joins the X Factor panel

Original Girl Power champion Mel B is completing this year’s X Factor judging line-up and she won’t be mincing her words.

The Spice Girl lived up to her scary moniker when she guested on the panel in 2012 and this year she’s sticking around for the series.

Mel said: “Honesty is the best policy – right? And that’s what I’m going to bring more of this year, whether it’s spotting an incredible singer, giving someone a reality check or debating with Simon over who’s got it wrong!

“I can’t wait to get started and find some amazing talent.”

The X Factor creator, Simon Cowell is back on the frontline for the first time since 2010 said: “I am thrilled that Mel B has agreed to be a Judge. I thought she was fantastic as a guest Judge.

“She is feisty, opinionated and, I believe, will be a great mentor.”

Mel joins Simon, Cheryl Cole and Louis Walsh in the search for this year’s X Factor star.

The ever diplomatic Dermot O’Leary returns as host and he could have his work cut out with this year’s Judges.
