Mel C has said that she is a huge fan of X Factor winners Little Mix, saying they remind her of The Spice Girls.
Little Mix have often spoke about their admiration for the 90's girlband and style their attitude on that of the '2 Become 1' hitmakers. With that in mind, Mel C's comments during an appearance on Lorraine this morning will surely make them happy.
Asked about her thoughts on the girls, Mel C said: "I love them. What I love about these girls is they've got fantastic voices, they're really talented, but they look like young girls. They're not uber sexy, uber glam, they're really good positive role models, which we don't have that many of.
Adding: "They remind me of the Spice Girls in that way, because they're really fun and young and I think that's what pop music should be about. It's kind of got a bit too serious and a little bit too sexy at times."
Asked what advice she would hand out to Perrie, Jesy, Leigh-Ann and Jade, Mel said: "My advice to them would be enjoy it, enjoy every minute, because it doesn't last forever," she said. "When you're in the middle of it, you don't think of the future.
"You get so busy and you can get weighed down with the all pressures - just enjoy it. It's a fairytale, it's a dream come true for so many young girls."
Meanwhile, in an interview with Entertainmentwise, Marcus Collins revealed he thinks The X Factor 'needed' a girlband like Little Mix to triumph.
