Mel C slams X Factor saying: “It’s had its day”

The X Factor needs to spice up its life apparently

The X Factor hasn’t had it easy over the last few years with a constant struggle to bring in better judges, different presenters and accusations of the whole thing being a fix.

And if that wasn’t enough, it seems that former Spice Girl Mel C is now getting her claws out and taking a swipe.

Uh oh…

Going all sassy on us, Mel believes that the show is over and has even hinted that she may be joining The Voice. Say what?!

More news!

"I'd love to do The Voice because one, I love Ricky and two, Tom is a wonderful artist,” she told Daily Star Online.

"I've never met but hey, he's been fun on the telly.

"Would I do it if they asked me ? Yeah, I'd consider it.

"X Factor's over. It's had its day."

Mel doesn’t sound bitter about her bff Mel B being axed from the judging panel at all does she?

In fact, it sounds like she’s taken the news quite lightly and is very carefree about the whole thing.


Team Spice Girl and all that.

Wonder is Louis Walsh agrees with her?

Come on Simon, hit back!
