The X Factor is back on our TV screens tonight,  and we can’t wait to see another year of hopeful singers murdering songs and embarrassing themselves on national television.

But contestants may want to get their thick coats on when they take to the stage,  because one judge who has got her claws out this year is none other than Scary Spice, Mel B.

The mother-of-three shocked her fellow judges in tonight’s show with her constant criticisms so much so that they decided to rename her “Grumpy Spice”

She blasted contestants despite their age and even their ability and even shocked host Dermot O’Leary by her comments to an 82-year-old when she said:

I actually wanted to fall asleep

Scary also criticised 19-year-old student saying:

I’m going to give you a big reality check, you should not be singing, find something else to do, it’s a waste of time for you, it’s a definite no from me.

Ouch, it looks like Mel B has got on her pedestal after that Spice Girls reunion performance at the London 2012 Olympics Closing Ceremony. Maybe someone should pull her down a peg or two. Louis seems pretty good at dissing his fellow judges, maybe he could have a go.
