Mel B 'in talks' to join X Factor judging panel?

Last week the X Factor rumour mill cranked into overdrive, when Tulisa was reported to have been axed from the show after just two seasons of wearing her judgy pants.

Now another spanner has been thrown in the works (we're using a lot of mechanical type metaphors aren't we? Sorry) because Mel B is apparently 'in talks' with Simon Cowell about stepping into T's shoes.

The Spice Girl was also announced as Sharon Osbourne's replacement on America's Got Talent recently, but The Sun reports that Simon Cowell is considering pushing back X Factor auditions so that she can serve as a judge on both shows.

Whadda keeno.

Mel is said to have impressed producers after appearing as a guest judge for the Manchester auditions last year, and an insider 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."
