Spice Girl in the hospital: Mel B couldn't see anything

Mel B was reportedly hospitalised after losing sight in her right eye on Friday.

A source told the publication: "Mel was in a really bad way. The other girls and their managers were really anxious", a source told The Sun.

In March, Mel B claimed in a TV interview that she had bedded bandmate Geri Horner, known as Ginger Spice, at the height of their fame.

The "Wannabe" hitmaker - who has no vision in her left eye after laser surgery went wrong - was rushed to London's Moorfield Eye Hospital after she was suddenly unable to see out of her right eye.

The mother of three is now recovering after swift treatment, but it's unknown what brought on the temporary blindness. "It is unclear if the loss of vision is linked to her previous problems, although it does seem likely".

Following her eyesight returning, Mel B reportedly left the hospital against doctor's orders, to rejoin her fellow Spice Girls in rehearsing for the tour, with another source saying, "Mel was determined to get back in action and was very brave".

Speaking of her time in the girlband - which were together from 1994 to 2000 and are now set for a reunion tour - Mel was clearly not in the mood to hold back as she detailed her relationship with Geri, claiming: 'We were best friends.


"She is our sister, we love her and I understand".

"I am sad she is not going to be there". It just happened and we just giggled at it and that was it.

Asked about rumours of a rift she said: "I try and focus on what's important now".

However, in spite of Mel's hopes about Geri handling the revelation in a positive light, The Sun reported the singer made a panicked phone call to her pal to apologise.

The tour kicks off at Dublin's Croke Park on Friday May 24 before shows in Cardiff, Manchester, Coventry, Sunderland, Edinburgh, Bristol and Wembley Stadium.

Victoria Beckham won't be joining the girls though, as she concentrates on her fashion empire.
