Mel B Unhappy On The X Factor Because She Thought Josh Brookes Was A Winner

Mel B was particularly feisty on The X Factor on Tuesday night and according to the Sunday Telegraph was that she thought she was on a winner with young Josh.

Unfortunately for Mel B he ended up turning into a loser. He was kicked off the show after it was found he had asked for banana pictures from his girl fans.

Personally I prefer Carmello to Josh and think he will be the last of the under 25 boys standing.

The Sunday Telegraph states:

 There was no denying the former Spice Girl brought Scary Spice to the judging panel for Tuesday night’s live show.

And while there’s been a lot of online speculation about what’s going on behind the scenes, we can reveal the reason for her cranky mood is Joshua Brooke being disqualified from the show.

You see, Mel B was banking on the handsome WA lad as her big hope to win the competition and wasn’t at all happy about his exit.

“Mel was really thrown by the whole thing,” says one on-set source.

“She knew she was on to a good thing with Josh as he was very popular so she wasn’t happy that he left.

“She was as much annoyed with Josh for what he did as the outcome.”

Brooke was kicked off the show for breaching the rules and conducting a lewd online chat with his fans.

Insiders tell us that Mel B was forced to bring back Carmelo Munzone, who wouldn’t look out of place on the set of The Hobbit.

On the night, Mel B made her feelings very clear to the judges, dismissing their comments and having little interaction with them during the show’s filming.

“Mel was nervous about bringing Carmelo back but seems to be happy with how he is going so far,” the source says.

Always preferred Carmelo next to Josh “Gary Glitter” Brookes, who oozed sleaze from the get go.

Josh wouldn’t have won anyway, it will be a group for sure.

Makes me wonder how much their bonus is when “their” act wins (and there certainly is one in their contracts)

Are these guys really that stupid? Mel B was never going to win with this mug. And surely Ronan should have known that the two boy bands would split the vote?

Not sure why there is so much love for Carmello. Sure he seems like a nice guy and sings fairly well but… he’s hardly got the personality or the popstar ‘look’.

Mel B would have been much more successful with Josh. That’s unfortunate, but true.

Spot on imaketheshow – Carmelo Bean hasn’t got the XF and won’t win. I doubt Josh would have won either – he had ‘trouble’ written all over him from the start. He came across as a real scammer with no credibility.

I have to say this series is very ordinary in terms of talent. Yes Shiane has a unique voice but she’s only half baked; she needs a few more years in the oven. Justin and Jason should give themselves and us a break and head off to Tamworth.

A.P is right, it will be the year of the group (boy band).

I have no love for Carmelo, he ‘s merely the least painful listening experience on this show, while being extremely disturbing to look at.

Josh was just a WASP recycling of Altijan Juric.

bdd – you’ll have to try a different trick with Carmelo; leave the volume on and mute the picture.

@BDD and @Georgie – that’s sorta what I was referring to, yes, I just didnt want to be so harsh about his appearance! He’s a young lad after all.
