Mel B's British designer passion

Mel B has a "big thing" for British designers right now.

The former Spice Girl is now advising others on their singing as a judge on The X Factor UK and America's Got Talent.

It's not just about the voice though - the star and her fellow X Factor panellist Cheryl Cole will be vying for the show's most stylish crown. This means the girls are looking to top fashion stars to help kit them out.

"I've got this big thing right now where I'm looking at a lot of British designers, so I'm hoping Julien Macdonald and a bunch of other people will say, 'Oh yes, we want to put a frock on you,'" she grinned to the British edition of OK! magazine.

Mel isn't the only Spice Girl with a passion for fashion - her former bandmate Victoria Beckham has taken the industry by storm as a designer. The 39-year-old was more than complimentary when asked if she would wear a dress by her pal.

"I just did, for America's Got Talent," she smiled. "I love her stuff. She's great."

Mel might not have been Sporty Spice during her pop heyday, but she does have a super-fit body. She previously admitted that while she manages to keep an eye on what she eats, she doesn't always feel like working out.

“The hard part is the gym and getting motivated to get up and do it. I don’t work out every day, I try and do it every other day, but it’s hard work," she sighed.

“Luckily I’ve got a great trainer who motivates me."
