Melanie C wants to play Glastonbury solo.

The Spice Girls star made a surprise appearance during Orbital's set at the festival last month and is determined to play another show at Worthy Farm alone after her 2023 performance.

Melanie is quoted by The Sun newspaper's Bizarre column as saying: "It would be quite nice to do it my own. I will have some new music out next year. I've only done it once myself, last year. The year before I had DJ'd."

The 50-year-old star admits that a solo slot at Glastonbury would be a good alternative to the "ultimate" goal of reuniting with Spice Girls bandmates Geri Horner, Mel B, Victoria Beckham and Emma Bunton for a performance at the world-famous festival.

Melanie explained: "There's room for both me and the girls, but with them it would be the ultimate. There's nothing I would like more than to do it with the Spice Girls... but while they're making their mind up, I could! The girls have never been at Glastonbury because it didn't do pop in the Nineties."

The star revealed earlier this year that she would love to reunite with the Spice Girls but dismissed Mel B's claims that the 'Wannabe' hitmakers were on the brink of a comeback.

During an appearance on the 'Sidetracked' podcast, Melanie explained: "Mel, I adore her and she has this thing, and it can sometimes get us into hot water.

"Of course we’re always talking, we’d love to do something else.

"I’d love to get back on stage with the girls but everybody wants to do something a little bit different or in a different way, so it’s just trying to get everyone on the same page at the same time.

"But Melanie likes to manifest things and she thinks if she says it enough, it will happen.

"I can’t confirm that there is anything happening soon but we’re always talking about opportunities."
