Mel B's daughter has refused to dress up as the singer.

The former Spice Girls star - who has Phoenix, 11, and Angel, three, from previous relationships - was initially excited when her eldest child revealed she and her friends intended to dress up as the British group for Halloween (31.10.10), only to change their minds later.

Mel said: "My daughter and her pals wanted to be Spice Girls for Halloween. I was so excited about helping with the costumes. Then one day she came in and said she didn't want to be a Spice Girl now as it was too boring. I was like, 'Oh thanks.' "

Mel - who helps raise husband Stephen Belafonte's six-year-old daughter Giselle - has previously admitted she thinks it is unlikely any of her girls will follow in her footsteps.

When asked about what they may go on to do when they are older, Mel said "I don't know, I mean we'll see. My kids are young, I have a three year old, a beautiful six-year-old stepdaughter and my 11 year old so, we'll see. It's a bit early to guess right now.

"They are more into sports. Living in Los Angeles it's very much an outdoor lifestyle so sports kind of work."
