SiCo 'Disappointed Chezza And Mel B Getting On'
The X Factor supremo hoped for fireworks between female judges...
The Mirror reports a show insider revealing that the 54-year-old reality TV tycoon wanted Scary Spice to live up to her nickname.
"Cheryl and Mel B surprised everyone with how well they got on," the mole began.
"We expected a cat fight. It's disappointing.
"They want to create friction between the girls. Simon is very keen. He wants them to be competitive."
And among the ideas being mooted is a Spice Girls vs Girls Aloud week - although we're not sure how that will get the claws out.
Viewers saw the show's arena auditions at the weekend, with places at "boot camp" on offer for successful contestants.
Among those to get through were Raign, Chloe Jasmine, Emily Middlemass and Ben Haenow.
