Mel B Had No Qualms Owning Up To Her Past Comments About 'D***head' James Corden

We’ve all said things in the heat of the moment that we come to regret – but for Mel B, calling James Corden a “dickhead” on live TV was clearly not one of them.

On Thursday night, the Spice Girls star was a guest on the Christmas edition of Joe Lycett’s late-night Channel 4 show, where the comedian put her to the test on her knowledge of the chart-topping girl group.

And while Mel B might want to swot up on her Spice Girls trivia ahead of her next music quiz, there was one question she was extremely confident about.

When Joe asked “which Spice Girl described James Corden as ‘the biggest dickhead celebrity’...?”, he didn’t even get to the end of the question before Mel threw up her hand and yelled: “Me!”

For those who’ve forgotten, the incident in question took place just over a year ago, when the I Want You Back singer appeared on Big Narstie’s Channel 4 talk show.

Comedian Mo Gilligan asked Mel during the show to name the “biggest dickhead celebrity” she’d ever encountered, but she quickly admitted she’d have to narrow it down as there’d been “a few”.

She eventually offered James, Jessie J, her bandmate Geri Horner and herself.

When pressed on why she’d named the Gavin & Stacey creator, Mel said cryptically: “I think you always have to be nice to the people that you work with, whether it be production, camera guys, sound, lighting.

“We all work for the same thing. So you should always be nice, and he hasn’t been very nice.”

Late Night Lycett is available to watch now on Channel 4’s streaming service.
