Mel B To Replace Osbourne On X Factor

by | 08 June 2008

Simon Cowell is hoping that Mel B will agree to replace Sharon Osbourne on The X Factor according to a report in a sunday newspaper.

The show's producers must sign a new judge within days after Osbourne announced she was quitting on Friday. Filming for the new series begins on June 12.

"Mel's in pole position to join the judging panel," a show source told the News of the World. "She's ideal and Simon Cowell is eager for her to join the team."

The former Spice Girl was one of Cowell's first choices for the judging panel before the show launched in 2004, but he eventually dropped her in favour of Osbourne.

X Factor returns to ITV1 later this year.
