Cheryl Cole, Louis Walsh and Simon Cowell were joined by Geri Halliwell on the judging panel for the first round of the ‘X Factor’ in Glasgow today.

The Daily Mail reports that Halliwell is stepping in for judge Dannii Minogue who is due to give birth to her first child next month.

For the first day of the seventh series Cole teamed her Pink Label for Charlotte Olympia dress, £325, with a £1,035 pair of Christian Louboutin lizard and python platform sandals.

Former Spice Girl Halliwell looked dressed down as she checked into the hotel yesterday wearing a pair of distressed jeans, baggy jumper and old boots.
