Mel ‘OOOH ME MINGE’ B has done a swanky shoot for Ponystep magazine and she looks like a beaut. And looks a bit like she's channeling Beyonce's style. Mel B-eyonce?

The X Factor judge and former chief scary bastard of the Spice Girls posed in a stylish wig while showing off some of spring 2015's fashion collections.

A source close to the shoot said: “Mel absolutely adored the shoot. She has really discovered a new style by deciding on outfits for The X Factor live shows twice a week. It has re-ignited her passion for fashion in a big way.”

The gorgeous mag feature has dubbed 39-year-old Mel the ‘Queen of British TV’, although she has divided opinion with her brutal comments on her recent stint on The X Factor.

Nevertheless, Mel impressed Simon Cowell who has praised her first judging stint and called her “a revelation”.

Surely that’s a bit strong, Si? Sliced bread was a revelation, pigs in blankets were a revelation, Eat’s Turkey Christmas hotpot is a revelation… a northern woman being a bit mean on the telly isn’t a revelation. Sorry, we’re really hungry. We guess she’s okay.

Speaking to The Daily Star, Simon said: “I think Mel has shown tremendous passion and protectiveness to her contestants. “She takes mentoring very seriously. I think she's been a revelation. Mel has been after this job for five years and just loves it.”

Mel will clash with her buddy Simon in The X Factor this weekend, she'll be backing her boy Andrea, meanwhile he'll face off again Fleur East and Ben Haenow.
