Being in the Spice Girls wasn’t all fun and games for Sporty Spice.

Member Mel C recently opened up about developing an eating disorder during her time with the 90s girl group.

“I joined the Spice Girls when I was 20 and it was an insane time,” Mel C told BBC’s Good Food in a new interview. “I developed an eating disorder; I was in the spotlight, being photographed constantly, and I started to become self-conscious of my body image.”

She added that she didn’t admit she had a problem at first.

“I was in denial for a long time but I always wanted to get better — I had talking therapies and holistic therapies, like acupuncture,” she continued. “Sport became really important to me too.”
