'X Factor' 2016: Mel B Reveals She Would Return As A Judge, After Being Replaced By Rita Ora

Could Mel B Return To 'The X Factor'?

Mel B might have been pushed off ‘The X Factor’ to make way for Rita Ora, but the Spice Girl has revealed she wouldn’t hesitate in making a return to the show if Simon Cowell ever offered.


The singer served as a judge on the ITV talent show in 2014, alongside Cheryl Fernandez-Versini, Louis Walsh and Simon, but became a casualty during last year’s radical shake up, which saw Rita and Nick Grimshaw installed on the panel.

Now that Rita has cast doubt on whether she will return for this year’s series, Mel has admitted she would love to have her old seat back.

Speaking on ‘This Morning’, Mel told hosts Ruth Langsford and Eamonn Holmes: “The show is a brilliant show. I had so much fun doing it, and back when I was a guest judge.

“If they asked me, who knows. I love the show.”

Mel will be seen back on TV tonight (8 January) hosting the UK version of hit US show ‘Lip Sync Battle’, and it looks like 2016 could be a very busy year for the star, as she’s currently trying to arrange a Spice Girls reunion for their 20th anniversary.

It has been strongly rumoured the iconic girl group will come together for a new tour later this year, but some reports have suggested that Victoria Beckham has refused to take part, throwing the plans in doubt.

However, Mel gave fans hope that they would pull a reunion off, stating: “I would love it, I think it would be a shame not to do anything to celebrate our 20th anniversary.

“Hopefully something will happen. Watch this space I guess...”

We have every possible joint crossed.
