In news that we certainly weren't expecting, Mel B has been linked to Jess Glynne.
The singers are said to have grown close when Jess supported the Spice Girls on their recent tour.
The women discovered that they are "on a very similar wavelength," an insider said, and partied together while on the road.
Their friendship sparked rumours that they were an item but Mel has insisted that the pair are just pals.
"Jess was a huge Spice Girls fan and pretty infatuated with Mel so it was a bucket-list moment when she was asked to support the group," the source told The Sun.
“After they performed the gig in Manchester last month, Jess ended up partying with Mel in her dressing room until 7am.

“They became so close while on tour that there were whispers behind the scenes that they were having a secret romance. But Mel is adamant they’re just pals.”
Jess and Mel have a lot in common despite their age gap, the insider continued.
"Although there are 15 years between them, Mel and Jess discovered they were on a very similar wavelength.
“Both of them are straight-talking, and of course Mel enjoyed having her ego stroked by Jess, who made no secret of looking up to the girl power pioneers when she was a schoolgirl.”
