Andrea Faustini has described his X Factor mentor Mel B as more of a "friend than a judge".

Italian singer Andrea has previously admitted to being a self-confessed Spice Girls fan, and it seems he still can't believe that he gets to hang out with Scary Spice.

Speaking to Richard Arnold on Good Morning Britain, Andrea said: "She's so cool. She's calls me on FaceTime and I'm like, 'OMG Scary Spice is calling me'! She's not just a judge she's like a friend."


Andrea completes Mel B's top three along with Paul Akister and Jake Quickenden, and Mel thinks her boys can go all the way. Mel told Richard: "I think my category is one to really keep an eye on."

The theme this weekend for the first X Factor live show is number ones and Jake, who looked rather excited yesterday as he headed into the studios for rehearsals, said: "I'm chuffed with my song this week."

Aware of the fierce competition, Paul added: "I think this is massively talented this year. It's ridiculous, I think it's the best year."

Meanwhile, yesterday Mel B was joined by a very special helper at rehearsals - her daughter Phoenix!
