Melanie Chisholm, or Sporty Spice to some, took on the prized role of Mrs Johnstone in the musical Blood Brothers at London’s Phoenix Theatre in 2009.

She was nominated for both an Evening Standard Theatre Award and an Olivier and is currently playing Mary Magdalene in the UK Arena Tour of Jesus Christ Superstar. She signed my sketch at the stage door in 2009. She was very friendly and stayed to chat with the gathered crowd, posing for photos and signing and seemed in no rush to leave.
