Mel B, America's Got Talent - Red Carpet

Mel B divides opinion by dressing as Victoria Beckham for Halloween

We'd love to know what Victoria thinks of this...

This Halloween, things were less spooky and more shady over at Mel Brown’s place.

The former Spice Girl – who is rumoured to be unhappy with former bandmate Victoria Beckham for pulling out of a planned reunion tour – took to Instagram to share her costume.

A post shared by Scary Spice Mel b (@officialmelb) on

Shocking fans, Mel was dressed up as Posh Spice, complete with a Victoria mask and a sign that referenced the failed reunion. It read: “No, I am not going on tour”.

The 43-year-old was joined by her pal Gary Madatyan, who was dressed as David Beckham in a football shirt and blonde wig.

The singer captioned the picture: “Yipppppeeee NY Halloween party is ON”.

The X Factor judge also revealed she was at supermodel Heidi Klum’s famous Halloween party, writing: “Yesssss @heidiklum yippppeee first year coming to her party wow wow wow what an amazing Halloween party right now,seriously it’s on fire haha me and @gary_90210 never laughed soooo much.”

Gary also shared pictures on his Instagram Stories, including one that showed his sign, which seemed to address Victoria directly.

It read: “Please please please do it for the Spice fans”, with a word underneath that began with B followed by several asterisks.

Many of Mel’s 1.3million followers thought it was a brilliant costume, with one commenting: “Girl you’re gorgeous, loving this shady humour too. Posh deserves it 😂.”

A second posted: “Hahaha hilarious! 😁.”

Another added: “Naughty but brilliant!! ✌️.”

Others, though, thought it was a mean prank, with one commenting: “Not cool. Get over it.”

Another scolded: “I can see why she doesn’t want to tour if this is how you act. Lovely way to treat someone, let’s shame them on social media.”

A third wrote: “I’ve loved you all since I was a little girl but this is uncalled for”.

VB, 44, didn’t take the bait, but posted her own picture in costume.

Mel confirmed on Loose Women: “We are in the works of figuring the stuff out – I don’t want to say too much. All five of us have signed with Simon Fuller.

“It’s going to be a bit of everything. If it was up to me we’d go on tour immediately. Maybe we will soon – hopefully.

“I’ve always said we’re definitely touring.”

But then it was later off again with VB insisting to Grazia: “There is no tour, no more music from the Spice Girls, but it was great getting together with them.

“We were just saying girl power is such an important message and how do we communicate that? How do we pass the baton on, how does that look to future generations?

“And that’s what it’s about with us. It’s not about all the rumours about going on tour and recording new material.”

It’s good to see Mel is still embracing her Scary Spice reputation. But we’re not sure this was the kindest way to get VB’s attention…
