Mel B 'Lined Up To Replace Scherzy On The X Factor'
Bosses reportedly nervous that Nicole Scherzinger might not re-sign...
The Sun reports that Scherzy is still sitting on the fence about re-joining the ITV reality show, despite having been offered a £1m deal.
But although bosses hope she will re-join Gary Barlow, Louis Walsh - and prodigal daughter Sharon Osbourne - on the panel, they are reported to be making contingency plans.
A source said: "Nicole is causing some worry. Bosses want her after her success last year, but she doesn't know if she can give all her energy to the show.
"Producers don’t want to be left in the lurch like last year so Mel is being lined up in case talks fail."
Ironically, Nicole was a last-minute replacement for Dannii Minogue on last year's show.
