"My daughter takes the mickey out of me because I think I maybe had one or two dates with Robbie Williams back in the day."

She added: "Jay from Five! We dated for a little while and he's lovely and he's still a friend. We don't see each other very often, but we stay in touch."

The mum-of-one was part of the most famous girl bands in the world – and was known by her stage name Sporty Spice. She is also a DJ who has celebrated an incredible solo career.

With 90 million records sold with the Spice Girls, the group will soon be celebrating 25 years since the release of Wannabe. "There are so many more exciting things later on this year. I can’t reveal too much," teased the star.

Asked whether there will be another Spice Girls tour, Mel replied: "I can't speak for everybody but if it was down to me, as soon as we can, we will. The success of the shows in 2019 and just how much we loved it, we have to do it. If we don't do it, I'll be very, very cross!"
