Former Spice Girl Mel B is reportedly to take over from Tulisa or Nicole Scherzinger in the next series of X Factor.
The Mirror claims that she is 'ready to come back to the UK' and become a permanent judge on the show next year.
Mel B has been a mentor on the Australian version of the talent show, and became a big hit with viewers when she did a guest judge spot in the audition rounds of the UK X Factor.
A source told the paper, 'All her obligations in Australia, where she's been living for two years, come to completion in January.'
The show is due for a major shake up after a nose dive in ratings.
