Former Spice Girls star Mel B is the latest addition to The X Factor panel and she is determined to offer complete honesty to all the hopefuls.

As was to be expected, Mel's appointment to the show sparked rumours of friction between the singer and returning judge Cheryl Fernandez-Versini, but Mel insists the press stories couldn't be further from the truth.

The feisty judge says she "absolutely adores" the Crazy Stupid Love singer as she is 'everything she loves in a woman'

How would you describe yourself as a judge?

As a judge I would like to think that I'm just really honest. I just call it how it is and whatever I see and whatever I feel, I just express that

How have you found the rooms compared to the arenas? What do you think the difference is for the acts?

I think in the audition room it's very nerve wracking for the contestants because it's us four and them. It's almost like being in prison, with us four. Who would want to be in that situation! But then in the arenas they really get that feedback from the audience, they get to entertain us and the crowd. So that's a whole different level.

What is your biggest audition turn off?

My biggest audition turn off is when the contestants go 'come on everybody join in, clap your hands'. I'm like 'uhhh no'.

How do you think the Spice Girls would have fared on a show like this?

Oh god, I don't know how the Spice Girls would have worked out if they auditioned for this show. I'd like to think they would get through, but I don't know.

How has it been working with Cheryl? If she was in the Spice Girls what would her nickname be?

For a start I absolutely adore Cheryl. She's gorgeous, she's an artist, she's confident, she's strong, everything I love in a woman, she is fabulous. What would her Spice Girl name be? Probably something obvious like Geordie Spice.

What's the hardest thing about being an X Factor judge?

Probably one of the hardest things about being an X Factor judge is saying no to kids. That's always tough as I have kids of my own. But they're young enough that they can still carry on and work on their craft.
