And she could be replacing THIS star...

Following her bitter split from husband Stephan Belafonte, it looks like Mel B might be making a BIG telly comeback very soon.

Yup. According to Louis Walsh, the former Spice Girl could be jetting to the UK to take back her spot on The X Factor judging panel, after she was replaced by Rita Ora and Nick Grimshaw back in 2014.

The Irish TV star claims Mel is in the running to replace last year’s judge Nicole Scherzinger, as it’s thought the ex Pussycat Doll is about to land a big Hollywood project.

And as the only judge not to have not renewed her contract for 2017 – it’s looking pretty likely that Scherz won’t be returning.

But it’s not all bad as Louis thinks 41-year-old Mel would make a great replacement as he told The Mirror: ‘Nicole might be getting a big movie like Wicked.

‘If [Nicole doesn’t come back] Mel B would be a good idea for the panel.’

Ooo, exciting!

The 56-year-old then added: ‘Mel is on the US show with Simon,’ referring to America’s Got Talent which she judges alongside Simon Cowell, Heidi Klum and Howie Mandel.

And the exciting new role could come at a good time for Mel after the former pop star filed for divorce from her husband Stephen of thirteen years, last month over ‘irreconcilable differences’.

Following a lot of  speculation over the pairs rocky relationship, X Factor boss Simon reportedly gave his support to Mel as a source told The Mirror: ‘Simon has got a massive soft spot for Mel and just wants to see her happy and doing well, especially given what is going on in her private life.’

Hmm maybe Mel will find herself a permanent spot next to the music mogul later this year, then?
