Mel C has said she finds Little Mix "absolutely adorable" and claimed that the X Factor-winning girlband have captured the fun side of the Spice Girls.
"I love them," she said on Lorraine. "What I love about these girls is they've got fantastic voices, they're really talented, but they look like young girls. They're not uber sexy, uber glam, they're really good positive role models, which we don't have that many of.
"They remind me of the Spice Girls in that way, because they're really fun and young and I think that's what pop music should be about. It's kind of got a bit too serious and a little bit too sexy at times."
Warning them to make the most of their time together, she added: "My advice to them would be enjoy it, enjoy every minute, because it doesn't last forever. When you're in the middle of it, you don't think of the future.
"You get so busy and you can get weighed down with the all pressures - just enjoy it. It's a fairytale, it's a dream come true for so many young girls."
