Mel B is in talks with Simon Cowell about joining the X Factor UK panel despite the fact she has already landed a role on America's Got Talent.
According to reports, show producers are considering starting the audition process in June — a whole month later than usual — just so they can get her on board.
It was thought that Mel B's X Factor ambitions had come to an end when it was announced that she had signed on to replace Sharon Osbourne on AGT but it seems Simon Cowell is still interested.
Simon and producers were impressed by Mel's up front critic style when she did a guest judge stint during 2012 auditions.
Mel starts filming auditions for AGT next month and will be freed up when the show airs in June.
This means she would be able to fly back for UK auditions and then return to the US for AGT's live shows. When they end in September, she would the be available for live X Factor shows from October.
Speaking to The Sun, a source said, "She's kept dialogue going with Simon and he hasn't ruled out bringing her over.
"He loved her bitching and thinks that she could help lift the show."
Mel is thought to be replacing Tulisa on the panel!
