She confessed that the group, which formed in 1994 before disbanding in 2000, would all wind up sharing a bed despite having a room each while abroad.
Speaking to The Times, Mel said: ‘I pretty much travelled everywhere with the Spice Girls, so there’s not much left on my wish list… and we’d always all end up in the same room sleeping in the same bed even though we had a room each.’
As well as their bed sharing, Mel confessed that they would play a cheeky prank on hotel staff – with one member of the group leaving male staff abashed when they would drop their towels: ‘They wouldn’t know where to look’.

Cheeky! She confessed that the group, which formed in 1994 before disbanding in 2000, would all wind up sharing a bed despite having a room each while abroad
Detailing the prank, she said: ‘Then the room-service guy would come in — usually it would be a guy — and one of us (often me) would pretend to drop a towel and they wouldn’t know where to look. We were always getting up to pranks like that.’
The Spice Girls are widely considered as one of the successful girl groups of all time, with their 1996 debut single Wannabe reaching number one in 37 countries.
In 1998, the group embarked on the Spiceworld Tour, which was attended by 2.1 million people worldwide and became the highest-grossing tour by a female group.
Geri left the tour in the middle and at the end of 2000, they entered a hiatus to focus on solo careers. Since then, they have reunited for two concert tours – The Return Of The Spice Girls in 2007 and the Spice World 2019 tour without Victoria.
News of their bed-sharing comes after Mel made an explosive confession in 2019, that she had a night of passion with her bandmate Geri.
The openly bisexual singer made the shock admission while filming for Piers Morgan’s Life Stories, cheekily telling the broadcaster Geri had ‘great boobs’ and adding: ‘It just happened and we just giggled at it and that was it.’
However, the saucy details of their night of passion has already reportedly caused great upset, with sources revealing Mel made a frantic call to Geri amid claims the confession upset her husband Christian Horner.
Speaking of her time in the band, Mel was not in the mood to hold back as she detailed their relationship, explaining: ‘We were best friends. It just happened…

‘She (Geri) is going to hate me for this because she is all posh in her country house and her husband, but it’s a fact. It just happened and we just giggled at it and that was it. She had great boobs.’
When Morgan enquired how frequently they slept together, Mel said ‘Oh stop it, you pervert’, before eventually confirming there was a solitary sexual encounter.
Piers delightedly expressed: ‘This is a bombshell. A Spice Girls bombshell. You have never admitted this before have you? People are going to be fascinated!’
Mel responded: ‘Yeah and I have said it now. All done. She is going to kill me and so is her husband. Hopefully when Geri gets asked that, which hopefully she will after this, she won’t deny it, because it was just a thing, a fun thing’.
Meanwhile, her bandmate Melanie Chisholm – Mel C – who was in the audience looked shell shocked by the revelation, admitting: ‘This is all new to me.’
