Mel B has revealed the "real truth" about her terrifying experience of going blind in one eye.
The Spice Girls star had an upsetting health scare just days before she's due to kick off her band's reunion tour.
Scary Spice slammed reports that she was doing fine and admitted she'd been left terrified after she lost the sight in her right eye and her left eye went blurry.
The 43-year-old took to Instagram to reveal what really happened as she shared a black and white picture of herself with a patch covering her right eye.
She said: "Thank you so much for all the lovely support and messages I’ve had about my eye. Just so you know the real truth. I had an awful experience last week when I went blind in my right eye and my left eye went blurry.
"Even though the stupid press said I’m ok and this has happened to me many times before, just to be clear I was NOT ok and this has NEVER EVER happened to me before,so who every is selling this story “a close reliable source” is full of BS and needs to get there silly facts right big time
"I was actually in a lot of pain and very very scared but thanks to the incredible eye specialists in A&E at London’s Moorfields Hospital and after at Luton and Dunstable University Hospital I was diagnosed by and eye specialist with severe IRITIS in my right eye and UVEITIS in my left eye."
Mel went on to talk about the prescription drugs she's taking in a bid to get better and has promised to solider on.
She also joked about needing to find a Scary Spice-style eye patch for the tour.
She said: "I’m taking multiple prescription heavy duty eye drops and other medication the dr gave me that I have to take every day to keep the inflammation under control,Also I’m being so well looked after by Team Spice special thanks to our paramedics too!!
"im still dealing with it and will be fir the next 3/4 months to fully get it under control but I’m no longer worried that my condition will get worse. My only problem now is I have to find a very cool Scary eye patch. Does anyone – apart from Madonna – know where I can get one ?? #eyepatch Pls #takingcareofmethank you #nhs"
"Gabrielle babe. She’s got loooaads," Rylan Clark-Neal joked.
Fans expressed their concern and wished her well.
One said: "Has to be a leopard print eye patch nothing else will do get well"
Another said: "Absolute trooper. You are one woman who goes through thick and thin and still comes through it all standing. You deserve a medal, Mel. Continue to knock em dead. See you on tour!"
