“I get asked quite a lot about the #MeToo movement within the music industry and if I ever experienced anything,” she said on the podcast.

“And I’m like, ‘Are you kidding me?’ No one would come near the Spice Girls because they were petrified of us. You knew if you messed with one of them you’d have to deal with the other four, so we always had backup.”

That said, she said there was plenty of sexism.

“We started talking about Girl Power because we experienced sexism in the industry. We were just five girls, we wanted to be famous, we wanted to be pop stars. Quite quickly we were being told: ‘Girl bands don’t sell records, you can’t be on the front cover of magazines because girls buy records by boys’…we were like: ‘Seriously, don’t say that to the Spice Girls’ — that’s a red rag to a bull,” went on to explain.
