Mel C has revealed she has a thing for younger men.

The former Spice Girl, who split from partner Thomas Starr in 2012, said she sometimes forgets she is now 40 when she sees men she likes the look of.

She told Now magazine: "It's funny - I see all these beautiful young girls with amazing jobs and I'm like, 'Where are their guys at?' My problem is I'm going 'He's quite cute', to guys who are obviously much too young for me.

"Then I look in the mirror and go 'C***! I'm not 25 any more!'."

Mel, who has a five-year-old daughter, Scarlett, from her relationship with Thomas, is currently single and admitted it " would be great" if Mr Right came along.

"But I'm a mummy and my career is important to me," added the singer.
