Mel has decided not to join the group for their upcoming reunion shows, no matter how lucrative the offer is.
Mel C has opened up about her battles with depression and eating disorders during her days in the Spice Girls. Speaking to Event magazine, the former Sporty Spice said that sometimes she couldn't even look at herself in the mirror during her heyday with the group, because of the constant scrutiny she was under.

“When the Spice Girls were at their biggest, I couldn’t even really look at myself in the mirror because I didn’t like what I saw,” Mel admitted. “I never said anything to anyone. I was trying to hide everything from myself.
She's promoting her first solo album in ten years, but the hosts wanted to know more about the rumoured reunion.
The much-rumoured Spice Girls 20th anniversary reunion might be back on the cards as Geri Halliwell confirmed that the girl group has been in “talks” about getting back together for a brief celebratory tour.
Halliwell, 43, appeared on ITV’s ‘This Morning’ on Tuesday (September 8th) when she was asked whether the group had any plans to mark two decades since their first single and album next year. She responded cautiously, admitting that her band-mates Emma Bunton, Mel B and Mel C had been in preliminary discussions about reuniting (Victoria Beckham is already believed to have turned down the possibility).
However, she didn’t want to get fans’ hopes up unnecessarily as nothing had been set in stone yet. “I think it's really faltering that people are still supportive of the Spice Girls individually and collectively, that's beautiful, it's really nice. It almost feels you know that it [the Spice Girls] belongs to everyone, like a generation.”

The Sun had broken a story on Friday morning of an imminent Spice Girls reformation for their 20th anniversary next year.
Bunton, a.k.a. Baby Spice, was responding to an article on Friday (August 7th) in The Sun which claimed that the most successful girl group in pop history would be reuniting for its 20th anniversary with an international tour next year, but without Victoria Beckham.
Just a few hours later, she seemed to put a dampener on those rumours on her Heart London breakfast radio show. “If anything happens and it’s concrete, and we decide on something, I will let you know, but nothing’s happening at the moment,” she said.

The songs are believed to have been recorded at the same time as their third and final studio album Forever, which was released in 2000. Their titles are ‘A Day In Your Life’, ‘Pain Proof’, ‘If It’s Lovin’ Your On Mind’ and ‘Right Back At Ya’. The last of these is an alternative version of the one that actually appeared on Forever.

The 39-yea-old pop star is expanding her horizons.
It’s the circle of life – while some girl groups are reuniting, others are calling it quits for good. Such is the fate of 90s wonder The Spice Girls, at least as far as Melanie Chisholm (Mel C) is concerned. The singer commented for The Sun that the group, comprising of herself, Melanie Brown, Geri Halliwell, Emma Burton and Victoria Beckham (nee Adams) wasn’t likely to head back in to the studio to record new music. However, she didn’t rule out further tours, so all is not lost for the five remaining Spice Girls fans out there.

In the meantime, Mel C is pursuing some creative endeavors of her own and targeting the talent show market this time. While it isn’t clear whether producers of BBC’s The Voice have actually contacted the performer, she does seem to have her sights set on a judging spot. It makes perfect sense, following the natural progression from pop star to fading/faded popstar to reality show judge.
