She turned up in Glasgow to judge and was greeted by a load of screaming fans.

Geri was chosen to fill in on the X Factor for Dannii Minogue as she’s off on maternity leave, and has recieved a lot of support.

Dannii, who is preparing for the birth of her first baby, wrote on her Twitter, “Go Geri! Give em some ‘spice’ at The X Factor auditions in Glasgow today. Good luck to everyone who’s auditioning.”

Well no doubt Geri will be an excellent judge. She is known for speaking her mind, so this should be easy for her. Good luck Geri!
