Bandmates were none the wiser

Mel C has admitted that she had no idea there was anything going on between Russell Brand and fellow Spice Girl Geri Halliwell when they performed at the Olympic Closing Ceremony.

Russell, 37, and Geri, 40, are said to have really hit it off whilst rehearsing for the show but Mel didn’t realise how close they were getting.

‘I don’t know what’s going on,’ Mel, 38, tells Magic FM.

‘I know they get on really well. I’ll have to quiz her on that one, the cheeky little minx!’

Things seem to be getting serious between Russell and Ginger – they were spotted holding hands at Hampton Court at the weekend and met at Geri’s house on Wednesday night.
