I'm always down for a Spice Girls reunion. I love the Scary hair and platforms. Any time of day or night I'll be there.
It wasn't experimentation. I fell in love with a woman for five years. An experiment doesn't last five years.
People call me lesbian, bisexual or heterosexual, but I know who's in my bed and that's it. I have a huge libido and a great sex life.
I know about investment. It's really obvious - you buy property, let it sit for a couple of years and then sell it and reinvest.
I know I'm not everybody's cup of tea. I'm just me.
Yes, I do have a big ego... and I am in love with myself... Because if you don't love yourself how can anybody love you back?
When somebody says something as a joke, the British press take things and twist them.
My mum enrolled me in this free dance class because I had so much energy in the night-time, and she just wanted me to go to sleep. I ended up falling in love with dancing, singing, acting, the whole entertainment world. Then, my mum ended up taking on an extra job so she could fund me to take singing lessons or go to drama classes.
Whether I was dancing around the house with headphones on or on stage with the Spice Girls... I learned firsthand that dancing was the key to shedding off the pounds and keeping them off.
We always knew Victoria was going into fashion, Mel C was going into music, Emma went into radio, and I wanted to do a bit of everything.
