Mel C has given her view on comments made by her bandmate Geri Halliwell in 1996 in which she dubbed Margaret Thatcher “the first Spice Girl”.

Halliwell told The Spectator 26 years ago: "We Spice Girls are true Thatcherites. Thatcher was the first Spice Girl, the pioneer of our women's empowerment idea.

However, Mel C has now denied that all of the band share the same feelings Halliwell has about the split number.

Not at all Sporty Spice told the Independent. "Geri has in the past been vocal about his support for Margaret Thatcher.

I’m from Liverpool. It was a name that was not celebrated in that region.”

He added: “It is not a thought or a feeling that I share.

Those who know me, from what I do, know very well what kind of person I am.

I don’t think people think I’m a raging Tory!”

The star went on to say that because the interview made it seem like the whole team shared Halliwell's stance,

she had been worried about returning to her hometown at the time.

"There have been many times in my career where I dread going home," he said. "And that's one of them."

Last week (September 22), Mel C gave an update on a possible Spice Girls tour.

The band pulled off a Victoria Beckham hit for the first time in 11 years in 2019 playing a series of concerts across the UK and Ireland.

In 2020, it was reported that the band were set to embark on a world tour to mark their 25th anniversary.

However, the singer said that tour dates will not be announced soon.

I wish I could say there is a show coming, he said. But I can't, unfortunately. We want to do shows, they're not organized yet.

“We’re constantly talking trying to work it out and make it work for everybody. But that yeah, that’s my number one wish.”
