Official: Mel B Joins ‘The X Factor UK’ As New Judge

Published: Wednesday 11th Jun 2014 by Sam

Ending months of speculation, it was today announced that Spice Girl Mel B is indeed joining the judging panel on The X Factor UK.

Details below…

Confirmation came courtesy of the producers of the hit ITV1 show, with some corners of the British press reporting that the deal was worth a whopping £1 million ($1.7 million).

The star’s signing sees her occupy the fourth and final seat at the judges table alongside Simon Cowell, Louis Walsh, and Cheryl Cole.

Speaking about her new role, Mel says:

“I’m so excited to be joining The X Factor – I loved being a guest judge back in 2012. I’ve always thought honesty is the best policy when being a judge 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!  Now I can’t wait to get started and find some amazing talent.”

X Factor creator, Simon Cowell, added:

 “I am thrilled that Mel B has agreed to be a judge on The X Factor this year. I thought she was fantastic as a guest judge a couple of years ago. She is feisty, opinionated and, I believe, will be a great mentor.”

We’re entirely “here” for this.

Given the inevitable amount press that’ll be apportioned to the ever vapid Cheryl Cole, Mel’s brutal brand of honesty will bring a degree of balance and entertainment to a panel that was in clear need of it.

See what we mean below…

Currently filming, The X Factor UK will begin airing in August and run through until December.
