Original Girl Power champion Mel B is completing this year's X Factor judging line-up and she won't be mincing her words.
The Spice Girl lived up to her scary moniker when she guested on the panel in 2012 and this year she’s sticking around for the series.
Mel said: "Honesty is the best policy – right? And that’s what I’m going to bring more of this year, whether it’s spotting an incredible singer, giving someone a reality check or debating with Simon over who’s got it wrong!
"I can’t wait to get started and find some amazing talent.”
The X Factor creator, Simon Cowell is back on the frontline for the first time since 2010 said: "I am thrilled that Mel B has agreed to be a Judge. I thought she was fantastic as a guest Judge.
"She is feisty, opinionated and, I believe, will be a great mentor."
Mel joins Simon, Cheryl Cole and Louis Walsh in the search for this year’s X Factor star.
The ever diplomatic Dermot O’Leary returns as host and he could have his work cut out with this year's Judges.
