Mel C upset at Spice Girls snub

Melanie C is upset at rumours that the Spice Girls have been left off the official Olympics playlist.

A list of apparent artists to be used in a celebration of British music was leaked earlier with Queen, Sex Pistols, Dizzee Rascal and The Beatles all included.

One notable exception was the Spice Girls and Melanie C wasn't happy.  Speaking to The Mirror she complained:

"I don't know exactly where this list has come from, and obviously sometimes things come out that aren't quite right.

"But I'd be really upset if the Spice Girls weren't included in the Olympics, whether it be the opening or closing ceremonies or any other playlists, because I think we absolutely represented Britain in the '90s.

"We literally flew the flag – and Geri even wore it – around the globe. We were proud to be British and to be successful internationally, and we were the last band probably to do that."

The girl group recently expressed their disappointment not to be part of the Queen's Diamond Jubilee.
