Mel C who was all smiles at the charity event at the Hilton Hotel in London's Park Lane and spoke about how brilliant it was to have the Spice Girls back.

She added: "As the day went on, we all kind of got into our stride but we're all so excited about the show and we had a wonderful day."

When we asked why Victoria had to rush back to LA so quickly, Mel's reply was very supportive…

"Victoria is really busy launching her fashion collection, she was exhausted from it and it was just a flying visit for her."

The singer whose just landed a lead role in Jesus Christ Superstar, was keen to stress she doesn't hold any grudges for Victoria preventing the Spice Girls performing at the Jubilee gig.

Mel told us: "I have absolutely no resentment I love each and every one of the Spice Girls dearly.

"We all respect each other, we're all very grateful for each other because we know that without each other we wouldn't have gone on to do all the great things we do."

Aww, girl power indeed.
