X Factor guest judge Mel B has been talking about her time on the show's panel, praising the 'sweet' and 'honest' Tulisa!

Mel joined Tulisa, Gary Barlow and Louis Walsh for the latest round of try outs in Manchester.

Discussing her fellow judges, Mel said: "Louis is lovely. He’s always pranking people backstage. We spent a lot of time teasing him about his hair.

"Gary’s brilliant; he was really serious at first but I livened him up. He’s got a very dry sense of humour, he reminds me of Victoria in that respect."

She added: "I got on like a house on fire with Tulisa. She’s really down to earth and you know where you stand with her. Tulisa also has a very sweet side to her."

Speaking to the official ITV1 website, Mel B also made fun of Gary's bizarre showbiz diet!

She joked: "We had a laugh [backstage]. I’m a northern girl so we’d order in fish and chips. Except Gary, who’ll only eat baby food because of that macrobiotic diet he’s on."

Meanwhile the former Spice Girl joined Mel C in campaigning for a Spice Girls theme week on the live shows this year.

She told the website: "Too right! I would LOVE to see a Spice Girls themed week. My favourite song of ours will always be Wannabe. I would love to see Who Do You Think You are performed on a Live Show."
