Mel - who, after much speculation, was finally confirmed as the fourth judge on the upcoming series of ‘The X Factor’ earlier this month - shared a photo of herself posing alongside Victoria during their Spice Girls days.
Igniting rumours that they may be about to team up, Mel added the caption: “Watch out - we mean business”.
When the competition reaches the 'Judges' Houses' stage, each judge teams up with a showbiz pal to help them whittle down the acts in their category and decide who will go through to the live shows, and Mel’s cryptic photo has led many to believe that Victoria could be about to help her.

Celebs who’ve helped out at 'Judges' Houses' in the past include Will Young, Kylie Minogue and Robbie Williams - though if we're being honest, all anyone is ever really interested in is seeing what Sinitta, who seems to put in an appearance every year, will be wearing.
And while helping out her former bandmate might seem like the furthest thing from Victoria’s mind now that she’s made a name for herself in the fashion world, she does have some experience judging talent, having briefly appeared on the panel of ‘American Idol’ alongside Simon Cowell back in 2010.
