‘So he scuppers that. We’re probably a good combination, though, because he’s very spontaneous and I like to be organised.’
But she also hinted at a new chapter in her life, adding: ‘This year a new door has opened for me, and I’m curious to know what’s going to happen next.
‘But doing this feels like my life has gone full circle and I’m back to my original passion – performing.’
Mel recently reunited with the Spice Girls to promote their upcoming musical Viva Forever, and is currently appearing on ITV show Superstar, though reviews so far have been less than stellar.
