Melanie C's 'Blood Brothers' theatre challenge

Mel C says starring her first theatre role is the most challenging thing she's ever had to do.

The former Spice Girls star - who performed to packed out audiences around the globe during her time with the group - admits taking on the role of Mrs. Johnson in hit show 'Blood Brothers' on London's West End has presented her with a very daunting task.

She said: "Doing 'Blood Brothers' is my biggest challenge. I've never had a serious acting role before, so I'm daunted. But I'm in good hands - and coming from Liverpool, I feel very comfortable with Willy Russell's script."

Merseyside-based musical 'Blood Brothers' tells the story of twins who have been separated at birth, with one staying with his birth mother Mrs. Johnson and the other going to rich family, and the different paths their lives take.

Despite her string of successes with the Spice Girls, Mel has admitted she is only just beginning to appreciate how good they were.

She said: "We had lots of enthusiasm. We weren't the world's greatest singers and dancers, but we always took pride in what we did. Recently I saw the video for 'Say You'll Be There' for the first time in ages, and I thought, 'Wow, we were good!' "
