Mel C, 46, burst onto the music scene with the Spice Girls in 1996, and has since become a household name in the UK But Sporty Spice – real name Melanie Chisholm – has since revealed that she struggled with impostor syndrome throughout her success and subsequently developed depression.

Mel first auditioned for a spot on Spice Girls in 1994, after responding to a magazine ad

A few years later, she was performing in front of millions of people alongside the other four members of the pop group

But behind closed doors, the singer began to wonder if she deserved her own success

Continually being in the public eye had a major impact on Melanie’s mental health, and she went on to develop depression and an eating disorder

Mel recently explained that she has trouble getting up even on the worst days

But a visit to her doctor made a big difference in helping her manage her symptoms, and she urged others to make the same decision if they are battling depression

« It was the millennium when I was in Los Angeles with my family, » Mel told the Mirror last month

« I was having trouble getting out of bed, I felt hopeless, I was very, very tearful and I felt like my body took over my mind

« I didn’t have the will to stay in this life anymore. So I decided to go see my GP the first thing he wanted to address was my depression

« It was a huge relief for me I just thought I was going crazy He had a name; it was something you could be helped recover from

« When you’re at it you can’t even imagine a way out I just hope my experience can help others either avoid it or get over it, or at least seek solace

« You can improve yourself Everyone deserves to be happy, just find what you need to get to this place »

Depression is a serious mental health problem, and it’s not just about feeling miserable for a few days

While it’s normal to feel slightly depressed, you can experience depression if you constantly feel sad for several weeks or months, the NHS said

Signs of depression can vary from person to person and can include feelings of hopelessness or low self-esteem

Some patients may feel particularly torn or guilty, while others may experience distressing feelings

If you are worried about the signs of depression, or if your symptoms last longer than two weeks, you should consider talking to a doctor.
