While her role as judge seems to be going smoothly -- Britney Spears has revealed that when she started filming the US version of The X Factor she suffered "panic attack after panic attack".
Spears signed up as a judge for the reality TV show earlier this year (2012), and she recorded her first appearance in May (2012) - but according to Spears she struggled on her first day on set.
She told America's Elle magazine, "(I was) extremely nervous. I was having panic attack after panic attack."

But it would seem that co-judge and show boss Simon Cowell came to her aide on the day -- helping build her up show after show.
He added, "On the first day, one hundred per cent she didn't think she was going to be able to do this. It's the Roman Colosseum - five thousand people booing if you say no. But I'm seeing this woman blossom week by week doing this. I think she's going to be good for the show, and I think the show is going to be good for her."
Are you excited to see what kind of judge Britney is?
