Mark Gamble, The Events Authority – Mel B

Whilst delivering a Conference at the Hilton in Sydney, I was very shocked for the elevator door to open and my teen idol Mel B from the Spice Girls walk out (this was pre X Factor days so I did not expect to bump into her in Oz). I was too shocked to approach her at first. I went back to the registration desk and waited for my moment to pounce – managing registration and spice girl stalking proved very challenging

I embarrassingly told her how I used to dance & sing to her songs in front of my family at Xmas & was even nicknamed a spice boy by my school teacher. I also cringe at the fact I had to ask her husband to take the picture – He was not best amused!
