Mel B exits Celebrity Juice amid Spice Girls rumours
Mel B leaves Celebrity Juice as rumours of a Spice Girls reunion gather pace.

Mel B has quit her role as team captain on Celebrity Juice after two series.

The singer joined the ITV2 comedy panel show last autumn and headed up a team opposite Holly Willoughby for 14 episodes.

Willoughby has also quit the series, meaning that host/creator Keith Lemon (Leigh Francis) will now have to find two new captains for the next series.

News of Mel B's exit comes after reports that she is planning to reunite with her Spice Girls bandmates for a huge worldwide tour in 2021.

"Melanie has loved working with Leigh, Holly and the whole team at Celebrity Juice but next year is going to be very busy for her," a source told the Daily Star.

A spokesperson for the show confirmed: "Mel has been a brilliant team captain and we'd like to thank her for all the laughs. We have no doubt she'll be back to banter with Keith as a guest on the show in the near future.

"A brand new series of Celebrity Juice will be on ITV2 this autumn with two new team captains and a whole host of guests... watch this space!"

Names already in the frame to replace Willoughby include John Barrowman, Michelle Keegan, Emily Atack, Joey Essex and former team captain Fearne Cotton.
