Speaking to the Radio Times about the television programmes she likes to watch, Horner said: “I watch Take Me Out and Strictly. I love seeing the Strictly outfits and it looks like everyone has a great time on it.

“It looks like it would be really uplifting and give you a buzz.”

Asked if she would go on Strictly, she said: “No, I wouldn’t. When I was in the Spice Girls, having to learn dance routines when I’m not a trained dancer was very full-on.
