Mel B has demanded that the CEO of Tesco contact her on Instagram
Mel B has hit out at the CEO of Tesco after they used a photo of her in a campaign about their Clubcard.
The Spice Girl, 44, posted a photo of the advert captioned: "Can the CEO OF @tescofood DAVE LEWIS PLEASE CONTACT ME URGENTLY. Thank you."
Many of her followers rushed to the comment section to voice their shock - even Jess Glynne, who wrote: "Someone f***** right up!"
Another added: "Oooo I smell a lawsuit xxx".
Another added: "You haven’t been asked for permission!!!???".
When contacted by Heart.co.uk, a spokesperson for Tesco said: “Here at Tesco we are really big fans of Mel B and were excited to feature her photo in our campaign. We had authorisation to use this image, but we’re sorry Mel B is unhappy and so we’ve stopped using it.”
Earlier this year, Mel B opened up to Heart.co.uk about her hopes Spice Girls would reunite once again next year, saying that she'd love to play Glastonbury.
"I think that would be a good place to start because it's Glastonbury's 50th year," she told Heart.co.uk. "The other girls have to sign off on it but i'll speak on their behalf. Yeah, I think it would be great.
And when asked whether there's a possibility Victoria Beckham could rejoin the group, Mel said: "I hoped we would become a five this time round. You never know, I always hold a torch. We started this off together as a five, and hopefully we're going to end it with a bang as us five. A nice pleasant big bang."
