Mel B has apparently ruled out returning to the UK X Factor - because she's about to sign up for a new series of the show's Australian version.
The Spice Girl made an appearance on the ITV show as a guest judge last year, when she reportedly impressed TV producers with her upfront attitude.
But according to The Sun, mum-of-three Mel - who joined X Factor Australia in 2011 - is on the brink of a deal with bosses in Oz.
A source told the newspaper: "Mel is pretty sure she wants to stay in Australia. She enjoyed appearing on the show in the UK but is telling friends she will stick to the set-up that she is the most comfortable with."
