Mel B Responds To Rumours She’s The Next Bachelorette
We’re used to seeing Spice Girl Mel B popping up on our TV's here in Australia thanks to those Jenny Craig ads, but could she be about to take up a more prominent role screens?
And no we’re not talking about as a judge on another talent show. Some pretty strange rumours have been circling recently claiming that Scary Spice is going to be Australia’s next Bachelorette!
It’s no secret that the reality dating show saw a ratings drop with their last leading lady, Ali Oetjen, handing out the roses.
And so, following in the footsteps of Australia’s first celebrity Bachelorette, Sophie Monk, it was reported that Mel B could be brought in in order to bring the number of viewers back up.
Sources close to Mel B reportedly told New Idea that she was preparing to approach Channel Ten with an “exciting offer” to star in the next series of The Bachelorette, following her messy split from ex-husband Stephen Belafonte.
While this was all speculation up until this point, Kyle and Jackie O decided to address the rumours with Mel to see if there was any truth to them.
Speaking with Mel on the show this morning, Jackie asked whether The Bachelorette was something she was seriously considering.
“There’s been some rumours that you might be coming back to Australia to be the new Bachelorette,” Jackie said. “I don’t know if that’s just pie in the sky, wishful thinking.”
But for those hopping that the Bachelorette would get a little spice up next season, we have some bad news.
“No!” replied Mel B. “Absolutely not. No.”
But it’s not because she’s already found the love of her life. Mel explained that she’s “happily single” but she wants to keep her love life private.
“I think I’ll keep my personal life personal for quite some time,” she continued. “I’m happily single. If I was to be dating anybody I think I’d keep it personal for a little bit.”
So you can definitely count Mel B out on handing out roses on the next season of The Bachelorette!
The only time Scary Spice will be popping Down Under will be if the Spice Girls decide to bring their tour here! And this is something that seems MUCH more likely to happen! (Fingers crossed anyway)
