What will the Spice Girls’ documentary with The Last Dance director Jason Hehir involve?

Speaking to Australian outlet The Project, Mel spilled: "I told Dave [Hughes, fellow The Masked Singer Australia panellist] when the cameras were off that we've signed our documentary to the guys that did The Last Dance, and he went and told the whole audience. I think I did say 'we've only just signed it, it hasn't been announced yet,' and then he told everyone."

Praising The Last Dance director Hehir, Mel continued: "The director and the whole concept of how that was shot and filmed was really, really, really, really good; so we'll be doing our own version with them."

The Last Dance, a Netflix series documenting the career of Chicago Bulls basketball legend Michael Jordan, was released in 2020 and went on to win the Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Documentary or Nonfiction Series.

The project will be the Spice Girls' first official TV project since 2007 BBC reunion documentary Giving You Everything and 2012's The Spice Girls Story: Viva Forever!
