Mel B maybe new X Factor judge

London, Dec 23 (ANI): Mel B is planning a return to Britain and hoping to bag a permanent job on 'The X Factor' judging panel.

According to reports, the former Spice Girl has started to look into schools for her children in London and is planning to move her entire family back after more than a decade living abroad, the Mirror reported.

Mum-of-three Mel, 37, who was recently in the capital for the launch of 'Viva Forever!', has been told by X Factor bosses she stands a great chance of sealing a deal to replace -Tulisa Contostavlos or Nicole Scherzinger on the show after becoming a big hit with viewers.

She's also facing pressure from daughter Phoenix, 12, who is best friends with Meg Mathews' daughter Anais and wants to go to boarding school with her pal in Hampshire.

According to a source, Mel is ready to come back.

All her obligations in Australia, where she's been living for two years, come to completion at the end of January, the source said.

Phoenix really wants to be in the UK and Mel's getting signs that things are going to work out with 'The X Factor,' the source added. (ANI)
