It seems Scandal! Is the show that everyone wants to be on, well everyone from Idols SA. First we heard that Jody Abrahams arrives on Scandal! from the end of August and now Idols' Melissa Allison's been signed to the soap too.
The sexy Melissa (also a machine with the vocals) was runner-up on Season 8 of Idols last year - she lost to Khaya Mthethwa.
Before Idols she was a finalist on M-Net's short-lived reality search High School Musical.
Melissa will be joining Scandal! as a tongue-wagging, gossip-spreading hoochie…ok we lie. We just know she will be called Jessica and will have a few episodes to wow us, staring at the end of September.
