Mel B was supported by husband Stephen Belafonte and X Factor co-star Louis Walsh last night as she was crowned Ultimate TV Personality.

The former Spice Girl, 39, has been a massive success since joining X Factor this year so it's no surprise she walked away with a prize honouring her judging skills – and opinions!

Mel was named Ultimate TV Personality.

Mel said she was thrilled and surprise to scoop the gong at last night's Cosmopolitan Ultimate Women Awards with Baileys, held at the glamorous One Mayfair venue in central London.

Her shiny award was presented by X Factor colleague Louis Walsh, who was making his first ever appearance at the annual celebration of inspirational women.

Louis spoke fondly of Mel to the star-studded audience which included ex-X Factor judge Tulisa and current contestants Andrea Faustini, Lauren Platt and Fleur East.

Mel told the crowd she'd essentially won an award for being herself, which was utterly amazing! Well, we reckon she deserves it!

And she joked she'd just be even more tempted now to say what's on her mind!

Mel celebrated her prize by roping Louis and the show's host Fearne Cotton into a group selfie on stage.

How very Oscars!
