Mel B was rushed to hospital at the weekend with a “severed right hand” and two broken ribs.

The star fell down the stairs at a friend’s house in New York, where she was due to take part in a book signing for her autobiography Brutally Honest, and has since undergone a three-hour operation to mend her injuries.

Taking to Instagram on Monday, Mel shared a photo of her arm in a cast as she stood next to a sign inside the hospital.

She captioned the post: “Thankyou to all the wonderful nurses dr’s and my amazing surgeon for the care and expertise given to me here at the hospital I’ve been staying at.

“Suffering two broken ribs, a severed right hand needing emergency care, to having had to have over a 3 hr surgery to repair the damage hence the purple sling.

“I’ve had to unfortunately cancel my book signing today in NY, I apologise to each and everyone one of you who bought there tickets to meet me today, I’m absolutely gutted but I can assure you it WILL happen at a later date.”

She added: “But for now my right arm/hand is all stitched up and I’m trying to keep still to heal my broken ribs, ohhh the pain, but I’m in super safe hands with the care of everyone here at the hospital!!!!! Thank you all for understanding, I love you all (sic).”

Mel has also hit back at claims that she ended up with her injuries after a drink and drugs binge by sharing her negative drink and drug test.

A rep for Mel told the Metro: “Yes, her 15th drug test was – as with the previous 14 – entirely clean.

“Her fall down the stairs was entirely accidental but she received nasty injuries. Now recovering in hospital and is comfortable but still in some pain.”

Meanwhile, a source told The Sun that Mel simply “lost her footing, slipped and cut her hand on some framed glass picture frames”.

The Sun shared the results of Mel’s latest test which showed drugs such as amphetamines, cocaine, methadone and marijuana were “not detected”.

Despite her injuries, the America’s Got Talent judge shared a snap of her friends rallying around her in hospital as the rest of the Spice Girls – Mel C, Emma Bunton and Geri Horner – visited her at her bedside.
