Tulisa Contostavlos will take the place of Mel B as a guest judge on tonight's X Factor final after the former Spice Girl was forced to withdraw with a mystery illness.
The former N-Dubz singer - a previous judge who also appeared as a guest mentor earlier in this series - will offer support to Andrea Faustini during the final.
X Factor judge Mel B has been forced to withdraw from tonight's final with illness, the show has announced.
There is only a 10% chance Mel B will be fit enough to attend the X Factor final after she was taken to hospital with a mystery illness, it was reported.
The Mirror said the sick Spice Girl was "seriously ill" and would be kept in for further tests.
A spokesman for Mel said: “We’re not making any comment. It’s a private medical matter.”
If she is still too ill Mel's act Andrea Faustini will be left without a mentor on tonight's show.
It is thought if Mel is unable to turn upCheryl Fernandez-Versini could step in to support him.
