The rumours surrounding the judging panel for next seasons The X Factor continue to spread and the latest name linked to a role on the judging panel for the show, is former Spice Girls star Mel B. Mel has had guest stints on the show before and impressed the show bosses with her brutal honesty.
With Nicole Scherzinger yet to commit to the show and sign a new one year, £1m extention, bosses feel that they need to act fast. Nicole has hinted in recent weeks, that she wants to focus on her music career and, instead of finding themselves on the back foot, X Factor execs are tapping up Mel B.
The Sun quotes a show insider as saying, "Nicole is causing some worry. Bosses want her after her success last year, but she doesn't know if she can give all her energy to the show. Producers don't want to be left in the lurch like last year, so Mel is being lined up in case talks fail."
Other potential changes to next seasons X Factor judging panel include Sharon Osbourne returning to the show, to replace the out going Tulisa Contostavlos. Meanwhile, both Louis Walsh and Gary Barlow will return for another season if The X Factor.
