"[I was] extremely nervous. I was having panic attack after panic attack," she told Elle.

Spears began filming for the show in May but co-judge Simon Cowell said she has grown into the role throughout the audition process.

He revealed: "On the first day, 100% she didn't think she was going to be able to do this. It's the Roman Colosseum – 5,000 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."
