However, this won't be Mel's first time on the soap, as she actually appeared as a checkout girl in 1993 long before she found fame in the Spice Girls!

We wonder if Mel will be asking fellow judge Cheryl Fernandez-Versini for any tips?

Last year, Cheryl starred in Corrie in aid of Text Santa, where she hit the Rovers Return pub as a childhood friend of Tina McIntyre (played by Michelle Keegan).

Cheryl starred in Corrie last year.

This year's Text Santa, the Christmas charity spectacular for ITV, will be packed full with non-stop entertainment with some of ITV's biggest stars including Ant & Dec, Phillip Schofield, Christine Bleakley, Paddy McGuinness and Alesha Dixon.

Text Santa started in 2011 and a staggering £15million has already been raised for charity.

Catch Mel B and the rest of the cast of Corrie during this year's appeal on 19 December.
