Scary Spice uses rude drawings to distract Walsh on 'The X Factor'

Mel B gives rude drawings to Louis Walsh during filming for 'The X Factor'.

The Spice Girls star - who has joined the ITV talent show as the fourth judge - has admitted she's missing her husband Stephen Belafonte, who lives in Australia, so much that she's been drawing erotic pictures of his him and passing them to fellow judge Louis, 61.

The 39-year-old star explained: "I do like to pass dirty notes to Louis. I miss my husband so much I like drawing pictures of willies, as you do.

"I do doodle a lot on Louis' notepad especially. I also draw boobs a lot."

Mel has joined Louis and returning judges Simon Cowell and Cheryl Cole on the show after the departure of Gary Barlow, Nicole Scherzinger andc Sharon Osbourne, and host Dermot O'Leary has confessed she's proving a bit too rude for what's meant to be a family-friendly show.

He told the Daily Star Sunday: "Mel is like a younger Sharon Osbourne in many ways. She's a ball-breaker who you can't really control.

"I have to turn down the volume on the monitor when she speaks in between the acts because it's all pretty fruity. I can't say what she says because it's all unprintable."

Quizzed on whether she was aware of her behaviour, Mel added: "I forget sometimes that I'm mic'd up so I start sharing things with Louis and Simon and I start free-flowing and forget where I am."
