Geri Halliwell 'gets deal if she impresses X Factor crowd'

Geri Halliwell

Geri Halliwell is set to sign a one-year deal to judge The X Factor if she impresses show bosses and the audience during auditions this week.

Simon Cowell has yet to find a replacement to take over from Kelly Rowland who left the show earlier this year.

And Britain's Daily Mirror newspaper claims that the former Spice Girl, 39, will get the job is she does well.

"Simon was impressed with the way Geri handled herself during auditions a couple of years ago, and thinks she has the gravitas and star presence to really shake-up the panel," an insider told the publication.

"She has great chemistry with Louis [Walsh] and bosses expect these two to join forces against Gary which will make for great viewing.

"Geri's had her confidence knocked over the years but she is a lovely girl and is incredibly enthusiastic about the show, and the part she will play in it.

"Simon is still reeling from the whole Dannii [Minogue] fall-out, and the fact she demanded so much money doesn't sit well with him. By comparison, Geri has been a dream to deal with.

"Assuming she passes her final dress rehearsal at the auditions in Liverpool, the job is hers."
