Melanie Chisholm's stint as a Spice Girl almost ended abruptly when she lashed out at bandmate Victoria Beckham during a drunken night out.

The former Sporty Spice has revealed she didn't always get along with Posh Spice Beckham and the friction between the pair almost cost Chisholm her place in the band.

The pop stars' issues came to a head at the 1996 BRIT Awards.

Chisholm tells Britain's Daily Star, "We all got a bit tipsy. By the end I was really p**sed and told Victoria to f**k off. It was so over-dramatised but it really upset her.

"The next day I was called in by management and they threatened to kick me out of the group due to my behaviour. I can’t remember why we were even arguing now."
