Seven has won its network court battle with Nine over Mel B appearing on its revamped series of Australia’s Got Talent.

The former spice Girl will not feature on the upcoming season of the popular talent show after the NSW Supreme Court today handed down its verdict on the dispute.

The Court found in favour of Channel 7 after the network had argued that the star is restrained from entering into or performing any agreement with any person other than Channel 7 for her to appear on TV in Australia at any time before January 2014.

Seven last month took out a court injunction against Mel B's defection to its rival network.

The Court concluded that, “Seven is entitled to injunctive relief.

A Nine spokesperson told B&T: "We accept the decision of the court and we are getting on with business."

Justice David Hammerschlag found the has an exclusive agreement which prevents Mel B from appearing on any other Australian TV network until next year.

Nine could not confirm who they will be bringing in to replacefor Mel B for the new season of the show.
