Mel C has slammed Little Mix for being "too sexy" and wishes they would go back to being less "provocative"

Mel C has slammed Little Mix for being "too sexy".

The Spice Girls star is unhappy that the girl group have adopted a raunchier image and has urged them to back to the way they were.

She told the Sunday People: "I love Little Mix. I loved them from 'The X Factor'. I just thought they were so different.

"But they are getting more provocative. To me, they were kind of the closest thing to the Spice Girls we've seen. "They are all gorgeous and great singers. But they weren't sexy and it's got more and more that way. I love them - but I just say, 'Stay you'.

And Mel also revealed she has stopped her seven-year-old daughter Scarlett from watching the group's music videos, because they are too racy.

She said: "She is a massive Little Mix fan but I've started to be more sparing in what I show her. I don't let her watch videos by artists that aren't appropriate for her. That makes me a bit sad.

"All young women want to look sexy and hot so I understand it's hard. But I think it's such a shame. We live in a narcissistic age - it's 100 per cent worse than when I was in the Spice Girls.

"It was a more innocent time, although we were slammed for wearing crop tops."

And although there have been reports of feuding among the Spice Girls after Mel and Victoria Beckham refused to take part in a reunion with Emma Bunton, Geri Horner and Mel B, Mel C insisted she loves them all.

When asked about a feud with Mel B, she told the Daily Star Sunday: "I love Melanie. My relationships with some of the girls are difficult at times but I'll never not love them."

Mel C says that the present day is more "sexualised" than the era of the Spice Girls? Is she kidding? The late '90s/early '00s was one of the sexiest times in pop! Sexy outfits, bottom-wiggling and flirty smiles (Kylie Minogue, Gina G, Louise Redknapp, Madison Avenue etc) more or less defined that era! And sexiness has always been part of pop (eg. Pan's People and Legs & Co in the 1970s). Shouldn't we be used to it by now?
