Mel B suffers from blinding eye problem

Mel B is suffering from a blinding eye infection.

The Spice Girl – who is due to start rehearsals with the rest of the band this week for their reunion tour – visited a doctor yesterday (30.10.07) to treat the problem.

Mel said: “I’ve got a really bad eye infection. On Sunday (28.10.07) it was so bad I couldn’t even see.

“My eye is a different shape! I’m seeing a doctor about it later.”

The 32-year-old singer managed to overcome the problem when she danced the rumba with partner Maksim Chmerkovskiy on US TV show Dancing with the Stars on Monday night (29.10.07).

The pair wowed the judges and scored a perfect 30 out of 30. Mel revealed she practices her energetic routines with her husband, music producer Stephen Belafonte, even though he is a “terrible” dancer.

She said: “I make him stand there, and I dance around him. He’s terrible! But he’s a good stand-in – he’s good at standing there and staying still!”
