Only The Young have revealed that 'X Factor' judge Mel B spends the most time with her acts out of all the judges on the TV show

Only The Young have revealed Mel B spends more time with her 'X Factor' acts than the other judges.

The pop group left the singing competition in week seven of the live shows and although they were very pleased with how their mentor Louis Walsh worked with them they admit Mel B is far more hands on with her boys than Louis or the other judges, Simon Cowell and Cheryl Fernandez-Versini, are with their artists.

Speaking to BANG Showbiz, group member Mikey Bromley said: "Everyone has the same amount of time with all the judges whether it's shorter one week or longer the next week, nobody gets any favouritism or special treatment. Although Mel really likes to spend a lot of time with her category."

Discussing the band's working relationship with Louis, Mikey added: "Louis was in touch all the time but he was quite hands off, he let us get on with it and we worked well like that. We always came up with the arrangement and then approached him about it. Then he would give his opinion and we'd see if it was changed, that's the way it goes. We had a great time on 'The X Factor', it was a good experience for us."

Following their appearance on 'The X Factor', the four-piece band - also comprised of Parisa Tarjomani, Betsey-Blue English and Charlie George - now plan to release an album in 2015.

The guys will not be working with Boyzone manager Louis on the LP, but he has told them to ring him at any time if they need his advice.

Mikey said: "Louis is always there for us for advice and we can always ring him up, he's a great friend but we're happy with our team already. We've got a great team around us, so we wouldn't want to change that."

Only The Young were speaking to BANG Showbiz at the launch of Bluewater's Winter Wonderland last Friday (28.11.14) where they met Santa Claus and went ice skating.
