Mel B has reportedly been lined up to replace Nicole Scherzinger on The X Factor if Scherzy decides not to return to the show.
According to The Sun, Nicole hasn't agreed to a £1 million deal to return as a judge on the ITV talent show despite having talks last week.
So producers are though to have offered Mel B a deal as a backup.
An insider said, "Nicole is causing some worry. Bosses want her after her success last year, but she doesn't know if she can give all her energy to the show.
"Producers don't want to be left in the lurch like last year, so Mel is being lined up in case talks fail."
We're not sure if Mel B should be happy or a bit offended!
Nicole has recently spoken out about why she's finding it so hard to make a decision. With a new album she needs to promote and having to do that all over the world, the singer might not really have the time to come back to The X Factor.
Meanwhile Mel B is now available for the show after leaving Australia's Got Talent.
Do you think Mel B will be the best replacement?
