The singer lives in the third-largest city in the UK, known for its music, nightlife, arts and culture

Mel B rose to fame in the 1990s as a member of the iconic pop group Spice Girls, where she was dubbed Scary Spice.

The English superstar lives in Leeds, West Yorkshire, in a converted farmhouse.

Back in March, Phoenix Chi Brown, Mel B's eldest daughter, shared a sweet snap of her and her mum at their home over Christmas.

The pair were perched on a plush burgundy couch, with leopard print cushions and a pink leopard print wall. A nod to her past, the wall boasted several photos of the singer during her time in the Spice Girls, plus snaps of her with the wider group.

'The house is a magnificent construction, clearly built to impress - and it still does'


In a video she shared on Instagram just yesterday, the singer shared a video of herself seemingly speaking from home.

She sat on a leopard print couch - in keeping with her former fashion from her time in the girl group - flanked with Union Jack cushions.

The windowsill behind her was littered with memorabilia, including statues and an MTV award.

Outside of her fashionable home in the wider city of Leeds, there is plenty to do.

Visit Leeds called it "the unofficial capital of Yorkshire". The website read: "A city at the heart of the action, bursting with life and cultural energy.

"A vibrant creative community, with award-winning national theatre and dance companies, a world-class arena, and a thriving independent food scene you won’t find anywhere else.

"A renowned retail destination, where big brands meet Victorian arcades. And a welcoming host for international sporting events, colourful carnivals, and a packed calendar of festivals and events.

"A skyline filled with breathtaking architecture, and a destination easily reached by road, rail and air. We are many things. We are Leeds."

For those who enjoy getting out in nature, Roundhay Park, Golden Acre Park, and Temple Newsam are well worth visiting.

Kirkstall Abbey is a beautiful medieval abbey perfect for budding historians to visit.

One visitor said: "What an absolute gem, this beautiful Abbey is well kept and a lovely day to spend the day."

Locals can make good use of the gorgeous spot. One visitor said: "This Abbey is a wonderful place to visit in all seasons.

"There is a really good little cafe where you can get a light snack and a warm drink. If you're a Leeds Resident you can apply for a free pass to go round the Abbey itself."

Harewood House - one of the Treasure Houses of England - is an architecture lover's dream.

One fan said: "The house is a magnificent construction, clearly built to impress - and it still does."

Another couldn't have been more complimentary. They said: "First visit and amazing. One of the best houses we have been to. The house is beautiful, and the staff are very knowledgeable, friendly and welcoming.

"In the garden and park, there are loads of picnic tables and bins, and lovely places to eat and drink. Amazing gardens with a lake. The willow maze is excellent and has a beautiful old church. Lots of grass for the children to play."
