Geri Halliwell Nabs The Fourth Judging Spot on The X Factor Panel Alongside Gary Barlow, Tulisa And Louis Walsh

The X Factor auditions got off to a flying start today in Liverpool and one person in particular made sure her presence was known. After filling in for Dannii Minogue in 2010 when she was on maternity leave, Geri Halliwell faced very mixed reviews over her suitability as a judge on the ITV hit show, despite her previous experience on Popstars: The Rivals (yes, we know – Geri had a hand in forming Girls Aloud!!). But not to be deterred, the former Spice Girl and ‘Look At Me’ singer showed the crowd just how excited she was to be back in the hot seat as a guest judge for the new series by climbing on top of her car and grabbing the tannoy to ensure she was the centre of attention.

“I’m incredibly excited and proud to join The X Factor in Liverpool and have the opportunity to find a new star. Those four seats are the hottest seats in Britain right now!” Geri told The X Factor. She added: "I hope to share all my experience and the ups and the downs of how to make it globally in the music industry with the contestants and I'm really looking forward to having a blast with Gary, Tulisa and the lovely Louis."

There has been much speculation as to whether Kelly Rowland’s departure from the show after just one series had anything to do with the rumoured spats between her and fellow female judge Tulisa. But we love a bit of a healthy rivalry between the ladies particularly in the style stakes…

Geri arrived in a lacy blue dress with white ankle boots while Tulisa stuck with her usual girly ensemble of a floral puffball mini dress by Lipsy toughened up with a studded black belt.

How Geri will fare this time around remains to be seen but for a little glimpse of some of her previous attempts in front of the camera, take a look at some of these old gems…
