Mel C on Spice Girls' London Olympics snub.

Mel C says that she won't be happy if the Spice Girls are snubbed by London 2012 Games ceremony director Danny Boyle.

Her comment comes as Olympic organisers released a playlist for the opening event that didn't feature the iconic girl-power band.

In the 86 tracks, British artists include David Bowie, Oasis, Sugababes, Arctic Monkeys, Duran Duran, Blur and Coldplay.

Mellanie Chisholm told The Mirror: "I don't know exactly where this list has come from, and obviously sometimes things come out that aren't quite right.

"But I'd be really upset if the Spice Girls weren't included in the Olympics, whether it be the opening or closing ceremonies or any other playlists, because I think we absolutely represented Britain in the 90s.

"We literally flew the flag - and Geri even wore it - around the globe."

The singer also known as Sporty Spice added: "We were proud to be British and to be successful internationally, and we were the last band probably to do that.

"So I think it would be a real shame if we weren't acknowledged in some way at the Olympics."
