She  will join comedian Howie Mandel and radio broadcaster Howard Stern for the eighth series of Simon Cowell’s talent competition.

Mel B was strongly rumored to be joining the judging panel of X Factor UK, after impressing producers during a guest stint on the panel.

The X Factor’s judging panel is expected to undergo a major revamp, with at least two judges replaced. 

NBC’s Paul Telegdy told magazine Entertainment Weekly: “I've known Melanie since she did Dancing with the Stars as a very frank, strong, enduring entertainer, someone who has a very strong point of view.

“We needed somebody who was qualified for the job. She's an amazing singer, dancer and a huge personality. The contestants will get a lot of constructive feedback from her, and I can't wait to see her chemistry with Howard and Howie."
