The America’s Got Talent judge also held a sign reading: ‘No I am not going on tour’, a reference to earlier reports that all of the original band members, excluding Victoria, would be going on tour this year.

Mel B joined other A-listers at model Heidi Klum’s annual Halloween party in New York.

Klum, 45, is known for pushing the boat out when it comes to her outfit and this year she turned heads after being transformed into Fiona from Shrek.
