Mel B ‘Axed From X Factor Judging Panel' By Simon Cowell After Just One Series

Mel B is on the hunt for a new job after reportedly being axed from the ‘X Factor’ judging panel after just one series.


The former Spice Girl will not be returning for this year’s series after being given the chop by Simon Cowell, according to reports.

Mel’s departure is all part of a huge shake-up planned for the singing competition in a bid to win back viewers and steal the ratings crown from BBC rival ‘Strictly Come Dancing’.

Mel had a controversial first year on the show, which saw her miss the first live final after being rushed to hospital with a mystery illness.

In an interview earlier this month, he explained: “I think I’m done with ‘X Factor’, honestly. My day job is as a manager, I’ve kind of neglected that. I want to get back to being a manager.

“I’ve done 11 seasons. That’s a long time on television. I think they’re going to change it, go for a few new faces.”
