Who else reckons this might just be the best X Factor ever?

Mel B is now pretty much confirmed to be the new judge on X Factor and now it’s being reprted that she is being encouraged to wind up Cheryl Cole as much as possible in a bid to see ratings soar.
Much to the delight of fellow judge and show boss Simon Cowell.
A source told today’s Sun on Sunday: “Publicly Simon wants to make out he hopes everyone on the panel gets on — but the reality is he wants an interesting show.
Well, don’t we all?
“In the discussions with possible candidates like Alesha Dixon the concern has been they’ll want to be friends with Cheryl. But Mel isn’t like that. She doesn’t care who she has to battle with to get her way.”
True to say when she guest judged the show back in 2010 she wasn’t friends with anyone – in fact, she ended up making a 85-year-old contestant cry.
“The producers have asked her if she can go head to head with Cheryl on a weekly basis. Her answer’s been an overwhelming yes. She’s promising fireworks and has the balls to deliver.”
They don’t call her Scary Spice for nothing.

And to make matters even more tense Mel is reported to be demanding exactly the same pay packet as Cheryl or she will not be signing up!
Yesterday it was confirmed that Louis Walsh would definitely be making a return to the panel along with Cheryl Cole and Simon Cowell.
And while, she’s yet to be officially confirmed it’s believed that Mel is pretty much a definite too.
