Mel B Auctions Spice Memorabilia

Auction-goers hunting for lots of celebrity memorabilia are in for a Scary surprise.

Spice Girl Mel B is selling off the contents of her former home in the UK to the highest bidder during a charity fundraiser.

Now based in LA, the 33-year-old has decided that the time has come to part with some of her most cherished items, including her famous leopard print outfit.

The potential collectibles include a motorbike, baby grand piano, furniture and a toaster that still holds a slice of bread. But by far the most sought-after lots will be from Mel's wardrobe. Five Roberto Cavalli outfits from the Spice Girls' recent reunion tour are up for grabs.

Fans will be able to bid for the original jumpsuit worn during the quintet's first ever public outing in Birmingham, as well as some of the more dignified outfits worn during meetings with the Prince of Wales and Nelson Mandela.

All the monies raised will help children's cancer charity Clic Sargent.

The charity has teamed up with bidding network Buy Once Give Twice and online auction site eBay, for the "once-in-a-lifetime" chance to win a piece of Mel B history.

Mel said: "I hope that people have fun bidding on a piece of me.

"As a mother it was important to me to be a part of an organisation that provides clinical, emotional and financial support to children and young people with cancer, and their families. A spokeswoman for the organisers said it was difficult to estimate how much money would be raised but the charity is expecting a lot of interest in the sale.

The online auction is at until Sunday, October 26 at 8pm.
