In the interview, the former Rogue Traders (remember them) singer, 40, spoke about her kids’ clothing brand, feeling like she was a boy growing up and what it’s like to work on X Factor.
Bassingthwaighte, who is a mum of two, said Scary Spice kind of lived up to her name.
“Mel loved to be the bad person, she actually just loved that role,” she said.
“It’s not like they gave her that role to be that, she kind of is that.”
The two weren’t exactly mates on-screen but sometimes that tension is just for the cameras, right?
“Mel and I are very different people. We got on well but I wouldn’t behave a lot of the ways that she behaved for sure… We’d go to a photoshoot and she would either arrive really late or not rock up at all. Or the photographer would be like, ‘Can we get this shot?’ and she’d take one shot and be like, ‘No, I’m done’,” said Bassingthwaighte.
