Spice Girl Mel B has provided fans with a reassuring update after suffering inflammation in both her eyes.

The singer was rushed to hospital last week over fears she was going blind, but now states that her condition is improving.

Taking to her Instagram account, she shared a picture of herself wearing an eyepatch and thanked her fans for their support.

However, she rubbished reports that she has experienced similar issues with her eyes before, telling her followers that she was a in a great deal of pain.

“Just so you know the real truth. I had an awful experience last week when I went blind in my right eye and my left eye went blurry.

“Even though the stupid press said I’m ok and this has happened to me many times before. Just to be clear, I was NOT ok and this has NEVER EVER happened to me before, so who every is selling this story “a close reliable source” is full of BS and needs to get there silly facts right big time. I was actually in a lot of pain and very very scared.”

She went on to thank the eye specialists who treated her, revealing that she’d been diagnosed with severe iritis (inflammation of the iris) in her right eye and uveitis (inflammation of the uvea) in her left eye. The singer now has to take ‘heavy duty’ eye drop medication every day to keep the inflammation under control.

“Also I’m being so well looked after by Team Spice special thanks to our paramedics too!” she added.

The singer revealed that her recovery could take up to three or four months, although she’s no longer worried her condition will get worse. She then joked: My only problem now is I have to find a very cool Scary eye patch. Does anyone - apart from Madonna - know where I can get one ??

This comes just days before the Spice Girls embark on their reunion tour, having recently finished rehearsals.
