The fascinating documentary series following the everyday life of former Spice Girl Mel B continues. This week, Mel tries to get her new fashion line up and running, whilst also dealing with daughter Angel’s troubling nightmares. Since bursting onto the world stage as one fifth of the hugely popular group Spice Girls, Melanie Brown, AKA ‘Scary Spice’, has had a fascinating decade-long career. Over the last ten years, Mel B has had a number of hit singles, been involved in musical collaborations with such superstars as Timbaland and Missy Elliott and published a wildly successful autobiography. Often under the glare of public scrutiny, Mel has also embarked on a number of high-profile romances, including a marriage to her backing dancer Jimmy Gulzar, which resulted in the birth of her first daughter Phoenix Chi. Long-term relationships with actors Max Beesley and Eddie Murphy have also been the subject of widespread tabloid interest, especially the bitter paternity battle with Murphy over Mel’s second daughter Angel Iris. Recently, the singer’s life has been less turbulent as she has settled into married life with her current partner Stephen Belafonte. ‘Mel B: It’s a Scary World’ follows Mel as she deals with her daily life as an entertainer, wife and mother. In this instalment, Mel and the designer Charlotte Sparre are ready to sell their new clothes line. However, first they will need to convince the stores to carry it, which proves trickier than first imagined. Elsewhere, Angel’s constant nightmares become a major concern for everyone.
