Britney Spears is having an emotional time on US X Factor

Simon Cowell's 'scared' of new X Factor USA judge Britney Spears, according to his best pal Sinitta.

Britney, 30, caused a stir again last week after walking out of auditions for the third time.

However, Sinitta, 43, has assured Simon he's made the right move.

She tells Now: 'Whether it's car crash or not, people love Britney.

'She'll freak him out, which'll be fun. And she'll put him in his place which, coming from a diva like her, will make Simon scared.'

Sinitta reckons Simon, 52, will soon be bowing to Brit's demands.

She says: 'Britney will have Simon wrapped around her little finger because he's better with someone untamed.

'It's taken me years to realise that.'
