As one fifth of The Spice Girls, Melanie C had already sold 55 million records by the time she was 24, not to mention the 12 million she flogged afterwards as a solo artist. These days, things are a teensy bit harder, but the artist formerly known as Sporty reckons girl power is still alive and well

Mel C gives The Sea a live airing in the Limelight, Belfast (March 3) and the Olympia, Dublin (5).
