Tulisa to replace Mel B on The X Factor final due to illness

X Factor judge Mel B will miss out on tonight’s live final of The X Factor at Wembley Arena after being rushed to hospital.

The 39-year-old Spice Girl was taken ill yesterday (December 12) and was admitted to hospital. No confirmation has been given on her current condition or ailment.

In order to make sure that Mel B’s finalist Andrea Faustini has support during his final performances of the series, Tulisa has been recruited to take Brown's seat on the panel.

Tulisa Contostavlos has previously served as a judge on two series of The X Factor, one of which saw her mentoring the show's first ever winning band, Little Mix.

The N-Dubz star also helped out Louis Walsh in picking his acts for the live rounds of the current series.

The live final of The X Factor will be on ITV tonight (December 13) at 8pm.
