If Melanie Brown gets her way, she will be back in Aus­tralia in 2012 for an­other se­ries of The X Fac­tor. The former Spice Girl has been trav­el­ling back and forth be­tween her $3 mil­lion man­sion in Cal­i­for­nia’s San Fer­nando Val­ley and Syd­ney to be a judge on the Chan­nel 7 tal­ent show. She’d be more than happy to do it again next year. ‘‘I’d love to come back,’’ Brown says. ‘‘I love X Fac­tor. It is a great thing to be a part of.’’ Brown, part­ner Stephen Be­la­fonte and their four chil­dren have been liv­ing in a rented apart­ment at Syd­ney’s Point Piper for the past cou­ple of months. Brown likes Aus­tralia so much she has talked of buy­ing a house here. ‘‘I like it. I like set­ting up camp. I wish it was five months here and I could re­ally get to ex­pe­ri­ence it,’’ Brown says. ‘‘My kids have been to the zoo. We’ve been fish­ing.’’ Brown and Be­la­fonte have in­dulged in some more adult ac­tiv­i­ties as well, with Brown ad­mit­ting the cou­ple had vis­ited a num­ber of pole-danc­ing clubs. ‘‘We live an ex­cit­ing life and we like to let off steam,’’ Brown said.
