The other girls and their managers were really worried.’ They claimed that Mel was ‘frantic and screaming’ and was taken to the hospital by an assistant who was seen ‘holding her hand’.

The insider added: ‘No one knew what brought it on but she had very swift, and very good, treatment. ‘It is unclear if the loss of vision is linked to her previous problems, although it does seem likely.’ A Spice Girls spokesperson told Metro.co.uk of Mel’s ordeal: ‘The situation with Mel is is under control. She is looking forward to the tour.’

“Thank you so much for all the lovely support and messages I’ve had about my eye. Just so you know the real truth. I had an awful experience last week when I went blind in my right eye and my left eye went blurry. Even though the stupid press said I’m ok and this has happened to me many times before, just to be clear I was NOT ok and this has NEVER EVER happened to me before,so who every is selling this story “a close reliable source” is full of BS and needs to get there silly facts right big time,I was actually in a lot of pain and very very scared but thanks to the incredible eye specialists in A&E at London’s Moorfields Hospital and after at Luton and Dunstable University Hospital I was diagnosed by and eye specialist with severe IRITIS in my right eye and UVEITIS in my left eye.I’m taking multiple prescription heavy duty eye drops and other medication the dr gave me that I have to take every day to keep the inflammation under control,Also I’m being so well looked after by Team Spice special thanks to our paramedics too!!im still dealing with it and will be fir the next 3/4 months to fully get it under control but I’m no longer worried that my condition will get worse. My only problem now is I have to find a very cool Scary eye patch. Does anyone – apart from Madonna – know where I can get one ?? #eyepatch Pls #takingcareofmethank you #nhs 🇬🇧”
