Geri Halliwell has been revealed as a new judge on Australia's Got Talent.
The former Spice Girls star will be replacing bandmate Mel B on the panel of the talent show, joining Dawn French, Timomatic and Kyle Sandilands.
Mel B reportedly had to quit the show after taking a job on the Aussie version of The X Factor - which is broadcast on a rival network down under.
Geri was typically upbeat about the job, saying: "Shows like that are brilliant and I love the opportunity they give to normal, everyday people. Plus, I get to come to Australia.
"I think it's unnecessary to be mean for the sake of being mean, but I do believe you have to be truthful, but with love."
And she explained that she'd got Mel B's blessing to take the job.
She told A Current Affair: "She actually said, 'I just want you to know I think you should do it cause you're gonna have a great time'."
Geri wore fancy dress for Leigh Francis' birthday party at the weekend.
