Former ATOMIC KITTEN singer Kerry McFadden has slammed rumours she will replace Mel C in the reformed Spice Girls line-up.

The WHOLE AGAIN beauty - who is married to ex-Westlife hunk BRYAN McFADDEN - was reportedly approached to take SPORTY SPICE's place on the all-conquering girlband's rumoured reunion tour.

But Kerry - who won the latest series of British reality show I'M A CELEBRITY...Get Me Out Of Here! - says she believes no-one could replace the NEVER BE THE SAME AGAIN singer.

Kerry says, "I haven't been asked, not by the Spice Girls. They could never replace Mel anyway."

And blonde Kerry, 23, also laughed off suggestions she's poised to star in British soap Eastenders.

She adds, "That's the first I've heard; I never watch it."
