Spice Girl Mel C has hit out a journalist over what she called a "rude, inaccurate and frankly disappointing" split story.

Sporty reacted angrily to a story in The Mirror by Clemmie Moodie that claimed the Spice Girls have decided to finally throw in the towel.

Mel C is not happy

The newspaper reported that the decision to retire was reached in a conference call 10 days ago between Mel B and bandmates Mel C, Emma Bunton and Geri Halliwell. It said they had ditched plans to tour in 2014 because Victoria Beckham refused to take part.

But Mel C has denied the story, writing on Twitter:


Melanie C
Rude, inaccurate and frankly disappointing.

She then tweeted the journalist individually: "@clemmiemoodie Disgusted with your piece in the Mirror today."

The story comes just days after the band's musical Viva Forever was cancelled.

The curtain will go down on the stage show, which features songs from the Brit girl group and was written by Jennifer Saunders on 29 June.

According to the Daily Mail, the production has made a loss of at least £5 million after it was panned by critics (including our own Entertainment Editor) and failed to get bums on seats after just seven months in the West End.
