Mel B was out in North London recently sporting her trademark leopard print, but she wasn't alone as her dog Cookie was also kitted out in the eye-catching pattern.

The Wannabe hitmaker was wearing a tracksuit outside of a recording studio as she carried the pooch who was draped in leopard print and adorned with a red bow with a new purple hairstyle on show.

Fans of the Spice Girls star expressed concern when she posted a snap of Cookie with the bold new look.

However, Scary Spice later clarified that the colour used on Cookie was "harmless" as she shared: "Cookies colour is “vegan organic” doggy colour that is environmentally and totally harmless on her skin."

The Spice Girls enjoyed a successful reunion earlier this year as they performed to packed-out crowds across the UK, although they weren't joined by Victoria Beckham, aka Posh Spice.

But Mel B has claimed Beckham could rejoin them on stage if they play Glastonbury next year.

Speaking on The Lateish Show with Mo Gilligan earlier in the year, Mel B said: “We started Spice Girls us five together, broke, on the dole, we convinced people to work with us - we probably still owe them money, the producers and stuff like that - and I was genuinely really hurt when she didn’t join us back on stage and I’ve said that before, I’m very honest.

"I do respect and I do respect her decisions, but... what a b****!”

The mother-of-three went on: “Funnily enough, my mum was at her mum’s summer party and `Victoria was there, and she did actually mention to my mum that she would love to Glastonbury next year. So I can say that. Unless my mum is lying!”
