As she arrived for a second day of auditioning in Boston looking chic in a navy pencil dress, it was reported that Victoria Beckham has landed a £3m contract to become a permanent face on the judging panel of American Idol.

 The 35-year-old has proved such a hit, the maker of the show, and her former Spice Girls manager, Simon Fuller, is keen to take her on permanently.

The singer-turned-designer rocked up to the Boston auditions looking sleek and chic in a gorgeous over-the-knee navy dress from the Victoria Beckham Collection, which she teamed with matching heels and a blinging gold watch.

But Victoria is the only star who has so far been asked to attend two rounds of auditions.

One source told the Daily Mail: ‘Victoria is the clear favourite because of Simon Fuller's influence... She was a revelation at the second audition and is now top of the list to permanently replace Paula.’
