X Factor 2014: Diva Mel B wants huge dressing room for live shows


X Factor judge Mel B has reportedly become a bit of a diva when it comes to her dressing room demands for the live shows.

While the series hasn't even begun on telly yet, plans are already being made for the live finals in the autumn.

And new judge Mel has apparently been quite demanding.

"Mel has a very detailed rider saying exactly what kind of foot she wants, the size of her dressing room, everything," a source said this week.

According to new! magazine, there's also been some tension between her and Cheryl over the sizes of their dressing rooms.

"If she sees she's got a smaller dressing room than Cheryl, she'll kick off. It's going to be dressing room wars," the source added.

They also said: "Cheryl is really easy-going, but she won't stand for it. She'll speak her mind."

While insiders claim Mel "can be a bit high maintenance and demanding", Cheryl herself said the pair were getting on great last week.

She hit back at the "pathetic" rumours of a rivalry, Cheryl gushed: "[Mel's] amazing.

“I admit we’re different characters, but it works. she’s hilarious.”

She added: “I have to stop myself laughing at her because the contestants think I’m laughing at them!”

It was reported yesterday that Cheryl would be taking over Nicole Scherzinger's old dressing room while Mel will have to make do with Sharon Osbourne's.

The X Factor 2014 airs later this year on ITV.
