Former SPICE GIRL, Mel B is set to make her move to America permanent by putting her English mansion up for sale.

The WANNABE singer intends to make a life for herself as an actress in the US, after an underwhelming solo career.

She has put her eight-bedroomed Buckinghamshire pad on the market, despite being unable to find a buyer for the $7.5 million (GBP5 million) property last year (02).

A source tells British tabloid THE DAILY MIRROR, "Mel is determined to move to Hollywood full-time with her daughter PHOENIX CHI and get into films.

"She's said there's no way she wants to get back into music.

"But she is very pally with Britney Spears, whose house is next to Mel's rented pad in LA."
