Former Spice Girl Mel B has opened up about having had relationships with women in the past, but said she does not identify as gay.

Speaking on Alan Carr’s Chatty Man, Scary Spice was asked about whether she knew any women who had same-sex relationships in the past.

“Yeah, I was one of those for a few years,” she said in response.

The 39-year-old was asked by Carr whether she identifies as a lesbian, to which she said: “I would not call it that. I was just one of those ladies . Now I’m happily married.”

The full interview with the X Factor judge will air tonight on Channel 4 at 10pm.
