Mel B signs up to advise Simon Cowell at Judges' Houses

Simon Cowell seems to have enjoyed working with Mel B so much when she stepped in as a guest judge that he invited her back for more X Factor fun.

The Spice Girls star will reportedly join Simon for the Judges’ Houses stage, as he picks his final X Factor acts at his home in Malibu.

Mel B was a big success when she stepped in for Nicole Scherzinger as a guest judge during the auditions stage, providing straight talk to the amateur singers. As a former X Factor judge herself, she certainly knows exactly what she is looking for.

A source told The Sun: “Simon is hungrier than ever to win and wants Mel’s caustic and honest advice to spice up the ITV series.

“Not only has she been a huge hit on the show in the past, but she’s got the Spice Girls reunion ahead.

“She knows exactly what it takes to cut it in the business too. Simon is confident he’s got the winning formula.”

But he has competition from the other judges, who have signed up A-List guests.

Sharon Osbourne invited Robbie Williams to her Beverly Hills mansion to give her some advice about her acts, while Nicole and Louis Walsh signed up superstar DJ Calvin Harris and Britain’s Got Talent judge Alesha Dixon.
