The 44-year-old star - who recently reunited with her Spice Girls bandmates, Emma Bunton, Mel B, Geri Horner and Victoria Beckham - is feeling "really positive" about the group's legacy and their future too.

Speaking to the Sunday Mirror newspaper ahead of the group's reunion earlier this week, she said: "We feel really positive about the Spice Girls legacy right now, because all the fans are women now. Some are parents, running their own businesses. Young girls are rediscovering the Spice Girls and it just feels like a really positive time, we need the girl power message more now than ever."

Meanwhile, Mel previously revealed the girl group are keen to inspire a new generation of young girls.

She said: "There are so many negative things going on in the world all the time and we feel like the Spice Girls was always a little bit of fun - something to enjoy when it's tough times. We now realise some of the impact that we did have on young people at the time, and now we all have kids, there's another generation that enjoy our music. We just want to empower people, we want to empower girls.

"We were talking about opportunities, ideas we have for the future. It's just great to be back in Spiceworld and to see the reaction and it's so lovely to know that people out there still care. I think we always shared the same vision so it's really nice to be back and thinking about the future. We are really excited to see what the future holds."
