Spice Girls star Melanie Chisholm has praised her former bandmates’ new track, but said it “was right” for her not to take part.

Former Spice Girls Geri Horner, Emma Bunton and Melanie B, known collectively as GEM, have recorded a new single titled Song For Her.

The track was leaked online on Wednesday and Chisholm has given it her seal of approval.

“It sounds really catchy, especially that chorus, and it’s lovely to hear those voices,” she said.

The former Sporty Spice opted not to join her former bandmates for the reunion, meant to celebrate the band’s 20th anniversary.

“Personally it was right for me not to take part at this time,” she said.

“I had been working on the (solo) record for a couple of years before I made my decision to not do any touring with the girls and it just felt right. I enjoy working as a solo artist.”

At 42, Chisholm has just released her new solo album Version Of Me and said she thinks there is an additional strain on solo artists who do not have support from bandmates.

“I think that really messes with your head. With the girls we were actually quite tough on each other but in some ways it was good because no-one was allowed to let their ego go crazy.”

Chisholm also said British stars were more likely to stay “a bit more grounded” than in the US due to “British cynicism”.

“It’s hard because Justin Bieber, bless him, is in the media and was so uber-young when he became successful and often for American artists it’s different because there is a bit of a grounding that we have here in Britain,” she said.
