The singer has shifted over 20 million records as a solo artist and has confirmed an eighth album is already in the works.

Melanie C has arguably enjoyed the longest solo career out of the Spice Girls, releasing her latest album Version of Me in 2016.

As the singer reunites with her Spice Girls bandmates for a huge stadium tour, we take a look back at her biggest solo hits.

When You're Gone (with Bryan Adams) - 1998

Canadian musician Bryan Adams recruited Sporty Spice to record vocals on duet, When You're Gone, which served as her first solo endeavour.

Shifting 750,000 copies in the UK alone, the single has become a staple of Melanie's live sets.

Northern Star - 1999

Released while the Spice Girls were preparing for their 1999 Christmas in Spiceworld Tour, Northern Star showed the first signs of Melanie embracing a more electronic sound.

Northern Star is the title track of Melanie's debut solo album which shifted 4 million copies worldwide and became the biggest-selling solo Spice album.

Never Be The Same Again - 2000

For her first chart-topping single, Melanie teamed up with TLC star Lisa 'Left Eye' Lopes for slick R&B mid-tempo, Never Be The Same Again.

Becoming Melanie's biggest hit of her solo career, the track also found chart success across Europe and in Australia.

The music video showed the pair practicing tai chi moves while in a futuristic home.

Speaking of working with Left Eye, Melanie told I-D: "I remember the time spent with Lisa very fondly because obviously she died so young, and I feel lucky to have worked with her. It's a great song, isn't it? We still do it now actually because it goes down so well."

I Turn To You - 2000

Melanie achieved a double bill of number one's with the release of electro banger, I Turn To You - but even more impressive, the track landed the 2001 Grammy for best remix and went on to sell over 2 million copies worldwide.

The music video for I Turn To You shows Melanie dancing in the famous Es Paradis nightclub in Ibiza.

It was one of the few solo tracks to be featured in the Spice Girls musical, Viva Forever.

I Know Him So Well (feat. Emma Bunton) - 2012

After making her West End theatrical debut in musical Blood Brothers, Melanie released Stages, an album of musical theatre classics.

Thrilling Spice Girls fans, Melanie teamed up with Emma Bunton for their rendition of 'I Know Him So Well.'

The single followed on just weeks after the Spice Girls reunited for their show-stopping Olympics performance.

Anymore - 2016

Melanie returned to the spotlight in 2016 with the release of her seventh solo album, Version of Me.

Lead single Anymore saw Melanie embrace an electronic sound. It allowed Melanie to hit the road again for another sell-out UK tour and put Sporty Spice as a regular on the festival circuit.

Earlier this year, Melanie C was teasing her eighth album which she claimed has a more "stripped back" and "traditional" sound.

Though it's unlikely we will get to hear it until after the highly-anticipated Spice Girls reunion tour, kicking off in June 2019.
