MEL B has befriended a new Ginger Spice while on tour – striking up a friendship with Jess Glynne.
The pair, who have a 15-year age gap, have been on the road together, with Jess being the opening act for the Spice Girls reunion shows.
Initially Mel and bandmates Mel C, Geri Horner and Emma Bunton were unhappy about Jess being signed up for a bumper fee of £1.3million to be the support act.
But Mel has now become good friends with the All I Am singer.
She shared a video on Instagram of them enjoying a cosy takeaway in her hotel room on Sunday night – which came a week after they went clubbing together in Manchester. A source said: “Mel has really wanted to get to know the cast, crew and everyone involved in the shows.
“She and Jess are actually pretty similar in many ways and it’s been nice that they’ve been able to share their experiences in the music industry.

“Mel is an absolute hoot, so it’s been fun for Jess to get to know her too. They’re having a blast.”
Jess is believed to be earning £100,000 per show she performs on the 13-date tour.
The last three concerts of the run take place later this week at Wembley Stadium.
Even with the Spice Girls’ earnings, the drinks are sure to be on Jess.
