Geri Halliwell has insisted that she is prepared to be heckled during her guest stint on The X Factor.
The singer will be on the panel for the first round of auditions in Liverpool as a replacement for Kelly Rowland.
The former Spice Girl has claimed that she will not be taking any criticism to heart.
She told the Daily Star: "I don't mind if people want to take the p*ss out of me.
"You get to a certain age where you think, 'Whatever'. A really big fat boo is good for you, you cannot take it personally.
"Of course they're going to boo as they're protecting their friends. I want to do my best and I'm so grateful for the opportunity. It's a really, really good show."
The 39-year-old was a guest judge in 2010 when she filled in for Dannii Minogue alongside Simon Cowell, Louis Walsh and Cheryl Cole.
Halliwell is hopeful that she may keep her place on the panel for the whole series.
Discussing the Judges Houses' stage, she said: "Whoever I bring as my guest helper will be authentic to me. It wouldn't be rent-a-celeb."
