She has received positive feedback from viewers thanks to her honest critiques. And Mel B was showered with even more praise from her fellow Spice Girl, Melanie C, who revealed that she is happy that audiences have taken to her pal’s judging style.
Speaking to MailOnline, Melanie said: ‘She is simply brilliant on it and I knew she would be brillian
‘She not’s trying to fulfil a role or anything like that, she’s just being herself. I think the show needed shaking up.’
And Melanie also shared her pride at yet another bandmate’s achievement as she gushed about Victoria Beckham’s rise in the fashion industry.
Mel admitted: ‘I haven’t been to see her shop yet because I’m trying not to spend too much money.
‘Victoria has done incredible things and all of us girls are just so proud of her.’
She added: ‘To think she’s gone from a pop group to doing so well in the fashion industry.
‘It’s completely unprecedented and all credit to her for the passion she has for it and for how hard she has worked on it.’
Mel also admitted that while she would love to embark on another tour with the girls, there are no immediate plans to hit the road together again.
Speaking of the demand for a tour from fans, Mel said: ‘I think for our fans it would be a really lovely nostalgia.
‘We had an amazing time in 2007 and we would love to do it again. But we’ve got kids and careers to juggle around but hopefully on day when all the stars are in alignment, we can make it happen. But there’s no plans at the moment’.
She continued: ‘There are territories that we never got to perform in like Australia, South America and other places where we really have this huge fan base. If we go on tour then it would be so great to visit them and say thank you to them.’
The singer also shared her views on the part celebrities play as role models for younger generations.
She admitted: ‘ I think it’s a very complex issue and I don’t think it’s right to blame individual people.
‘We live in a country where we have free speech and you are able to express yourself whichever way you want.
‘Now when I was in the Spice Girls, we were aware that we had extremely young fans and we were aware of our responsibilities so we tried to act as we felt was appropriate.’
She added: ‘Everyone always talks about Rihanna and Miley but what about the record labels and TV channels?
‘I love Miley and Rihanna, I think they are brilliant artists. But it’s absolutely not appropriate for my five-year-old daughter, Scarlett, to watch them doing a TV performance or a video.
‘Yes, it is my responsibility to keep her away from that but as they get older and tech-savvy, it’s harder to keep them away from it.’
Melanie also spoke about using fame to help those in need as she said: ‘Working with charities is something that’s grown over the years for me.
‘In the early days with the Spice Girl, we were approached by so many worthy causes and you just can’t do them all.
‘I try to pick causes that really resonate with me and that I feel very passionately about. Obviously, since becoming a mum I am more empathetic with children and their needs.’
