Scouser Mel C was attending the Doreen Bird College of Performing Arts in 1994 when she replied to an ad in The Stage looking for "streetwise, outgoing, ambitious, and dedicated" young women aged 18-23 for a new girl group.

She passed the first audition but missed the second, only making the final lineup when an unfortunate young lady named Lianne Morgan was told she looked too old. Christened 'Sporty' by Top of the Pops magazine for her tomboy image, she was generally regarded as having the best voice of all the Spice Girls.
