Speaking ahead of her role, Mel B said: “I am really excited to be hosting the 2016 RBS British LGBT Awards next month. It is a fantastic event that recognises the LGBT people doing wonderful things and the straight allies who give so much support to the LGBT community. I’m proud to be part of it.
“It is going to be a brilliant night filled with surprises and a glitzy guest list that is just fabulous. The British LGBT Awards is the hottest ticket in town.”
