Mel B to Miss X Factor Finals?!

There are fears that Mel B will have to skip The X Factor finals this weekend due to a mystery illness.

According to reports the judge, who has not revealed what exactly is wrong with her, missed a press event yesterday evening as well as rehearsals. She is also refusing to go near her act Andrea Faustini.


Mel (pictured alongside Cheryl Fernandez-Versini) may miss the final due to a mystery illness.

An insider told the Daily Star: “Poor Andrea is feeling abandoned. He is already nervous about the final.

“The poor lad is having to fend for himself backstage in the run-up to the biggest night of his life… But Mel can’t help it. She is so poorly and may have to miss the final altogether.”

Andrea Faustini is one of the three finalists.

A spokesperson for the show apparently confirmed the rumours, telling the publication: “There’s a chance she won’t make it, absolutely.”

This weekend Andrea Faustini, Fleur East and Ben Haenow will battle it out at Wembley in the hope of being crowned this year’s X Factor winner.
