When contacted by, 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 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 "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."
