Mel B 'set to join Australian X Factor'

Mel B 'set to join Australian X Factor'

Mel B is reportedly set to star on the Australian 'X Factor'.

The 41-year-old singer, who is currently on the panel of 'America's Got Talent', is poised to become the fourth judge on 'The X Factor', meaning she will appear onscreen alongside Iggy Azalea, Adam Lambert and Guy Sebastian.

The imminent move is seen as a sign that Mel has a long-term future working with music mogul Simon Cowell.

A source told The Sun on Sunday newspaper: "Mel is a real favourite with Simon. He loves her straight-talking attitude."

Mel previously served as a judge on the Australian version of 'The X Factor' from 2011 to 2012, and on the British version in 2014.

The rumour comes shortly after Mel, Geri Horner and Emma Bunton hinted at a possible Spice Girls reunion.

The trio are reportedly keen to reunite in order to mark the 20th anniversary of their debut single 'Wannabe'.

They all appeared in a video in which they thanked the fans for their loyal support over the past two decades and hinted at some possible reunion concerts.

However, Mel has been tight-lipped about the specific details of the supposed comeback.

She said: "You know what? All will be revealed very, very soon.

"We have a few interesting things that we will be sharing with everybody, or the people that want to know. It's gonna be very interesting."

However, it appears that any possible reunion will not involve Mel C and Victoria Beckham, both of whom are said to be opposed to the idea.
