Mel B seems to have spilled the beans on an X Factor role this year, as she talked about moving back to the UK during a radio interview.

Speaking to Jamie Theakston on Heart FM, the former Spice Girl said she was moving back to Britain with her family for "quite some time" this year, then added: "I don't think I was meant to say that though. Oh sorry! Pregnant brain... Maybe that was a secret."

When asked if she was being lined up to replace judge Cheryl Cole on the hit ITV show, Mel, who is expecting her third child, responded: "Maybe so... Anyway... I'm in so much trouble, why did I do this interview? I don't talk about anything unless it's ready to go."

Cheryl is hoping for a role on the US version of the talent show, alongside Simon Cowell.

Dannii Minogue and Louis Walsh will be on the UK judging panel, but ITV bosses have not confirmed whether Cowell will have the time to join them.
