Subject: Spice Girl Mel B is confirmed as fourth X Factor judge

Written By: Philip Eno on 06/11/14 at 5:38 am

Mel B has been named as the fourth X Factor judge in the 11th series of the ITV talent show.

The former Spice Girl said she was "so excited" to be coming back and is reported to have signed a deal worth £1 million.

The 39-year-old appeared as a guest judge on the show 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," she said.

"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."

Simon Cowell said he was "thrilled" by the appointment.

He said: "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."

Mel B has also been on both the American and Australian versions of the programme.

As part of the Spice Girls, Mel B had nine number one singles and 80 million record sales worldwide.
