Anastacia will be the next guest judge on 'X Factor'.

The 'I'm Outta Love' hitmaker has revealed she will be taking the vacant fourth spot on the panel for filming of the show in Glasgow alongside Gary Barlow, Tulisa Contostavlos and Louis Walsh.

When asked by a fan on twitter " what r u doing in Europe? :) Where r u? (sic), she answered "Head 2 Berlin for Skoda show then Glasgow 4 XFactor auditions. Funfunfun (sic)".

Despite Anastacia's excitement it was revealed today that Gary's preferred fourth judge is Mel B, who has joined the team in Manchester.

A source told Digital Spy: "The other judges have loved working with Mel and Gary has said to producers that he thinks she is great," said a show insider.

"She has been really fiery and has strong opinions.

"Tulisa and Louis have also got along really well with Mel backstage. Tulisa and Mel are always giggling together."

Geri Halliwell, Nicole Scherzinger, Leona Lewis and Rita Ora have acted as guest judges for the auditions so far with Nicole said to be the favourite to land the role permanently.
