Manchester, England – In a move that likely won’t bode well between former bandmates of arguably the most successful girl group ever: “The Spice Girls”. Mel B or “Scary Spice” has been named to replace Geri Halliwell aka “Ginger Spice” as a host on the UK X Factor.

Fans of the girl group may recall that it was Halliwell who quit quintet and the group posted one more album as a foursome before breaking up. At the time, it was rumored that Halliwell was the only member with “real talent”.

Unfortunately, being a presenter on a TV show is another matter entirely. Halliwell was not liked by fans and was booed. Despite all that, she made clear her desire to remain on the show. On her part, Mel B has been successfully working as a judge in Australia’s X Factor and doing well. She’s looking forward to returning back to the UK.
