Well this sounds promising!
There's been nonstop speculation for months about the upcoming season of the X Factor and whether or not Dannii Minogue will be returning to her spot on the judges panel, especially now that she is pregnant with her first child!
Reports have indicated that the Aussie was in negotiations to return for the live performances in September after she gives birth in July, and there's been relentless rumors that Scary Spice, Mel B, would be filling in for the audition portion of the program!
Mel B herself is now finally speaking out about it - albeit in sneaky, vague terms!
'I can't really talk about that because I don't think it's my place to, but I'm sure some announcement's going to happen at some point and then we'll all know!’
And a source is also claiming that maybe Dannii's deal isn't as set in stone as we thought it might be:
"Dannii is working on a deal with the X Factor, an offer has been made - but negotiations are still in the early stages. 'It looks promising though.’"
We think that if these two are too much trouble in negotiations, then there's obviously a much better, easier solution!
