Mel B is set to return to the judging panel for The X Factor 2015, it's been claimed.

Mel was confirmed as a new judge on the eleventh series late last year after months of rumours.

She divided viewers however, with some loving her no nonsense, harsh attitude to singers but others HATING her.

Fortunately for Mel, X Factor Simon Cowell loved her and it's reported today that he's offered her a new deal for both The X Factor UK and America's Got Talent.

The Daily Mirror newspaper reports that Mel has been offered a seven-figure fee for her time on AGT alone.

“She is over the moon that she is going back to America’s Got Talent," said an insider. We bet. "She loves the show. She is working hard on her profile in the US so this is a real boost.

“Things have been a bit rubbish for her lately. Her marriage has been questioned by many so she is happy she can get stuck into work now."

The source went on to reveal: "Simon has been very supportive of Mel. He admires her and her work ethic.

"He was very impressed by her as a judge on the X Factor and he loved working with her so closely on the show. He told her she is very much part of the family.”
