Mel C is "frightened" of cosmetic surgery.

The former Spice Girls singer thinks people can go "too far" with going under The Knife to alter their appearances, but she insists she doesn't judge people who decide to have appearance-altering surgical procedures.

She told Britain's Hello! magazine: "Cosmetic surgery frightens me a little bit - people go too far and sometimes it goes wrong but I wouldn't judge those who want it done.

"I've not had it done myself."

Mel, 37, has several tattoos and admits she regrets some of them, particularly as they took so long to cover up when she was appearing in London stage production 'Blood Brothers'.

She said: I regret some of them. I was very young and I've changed a lot since then, plus some of them are in prominent places.

"When I did 'Blood Brothers' on stage I had to cover them up, which was a messy job involving acrylic paint and glue."
