to bake or not to bake

Some of us do, some of us don’t. And some of us don’t, but like to fantasise that we could if only we set our mind to it… Bake, that is.

Which is all the odder because I am sandwiched between two…

I was reduced to tears. LIZ GODSMARK An ex-colleague heard I had cancer and bought a travel cot. He took it to my friend’s house so she could have my baby stay over when I needed time to recover. IMELDA MEL AMOR When I reached the supermarket checkout and realised I didn’t have my purse, the woman behind offered to pay for my shopping. SARAH COTTINGHAM A friend told…

sporty spice? i’m in the best shape of my life!

More than 20 years ago, five young women burst into our lives and introduced the world to Girl Power. Posh, Scary, Baby and Ginger Spice launched a million Wannabes, but it was Mel C, as Sporty, who had the best voice and has, since they all went solo, had the biggest musical career. Today, Melanie is Mum to eight-year-old Scarlet and is about to go on tour with her latest album, Version Of Me. And when she arrives for our cover shoot, she is clearly super-fit, excited and ready to hit the road. She tells GH how she really feels about the Spice Girls reuniting, why she’s angry that, at 43, she’s a victim of ageism, and why this is the year to fight back... How does it feel to be…
