One of The Masked Singer UK stage managers worked with Mel B on the Spice Girls reunion tour and he had no idea that she was Seahorse.
On Saturday night the pop star was the second celebrity to be unveiled on the weird and wacky ITV talent show.
Each of the celebs identities are kept top secret with just a few people knowing who they actually are.
When in the studio they either have to be in full costume or wearing a helmet or balaclava to hide their famous faces.
Despite not being able to talk to anyone backstage, that didn’t stop Scary Spice from having a little fun with it.
Speaking to Metro.co.uk about knowing one of the stage managers, she began: ‘The stage management talks to you because you’re not allowed to talk back to them when you’re on stage.
‘The person (I had) was the guy that did our Spice tour.
‘You know usually I’d go “Hey mate, how the kids? How you doing? Oh god Spice World was crazy wasn’t it?”‘
‘I couldn’t say a word to him,’ Mel added. ‘I’m looking at him, obviously he can’t see me because I’ve got a visor on or my costume on and I’m thinking, “You have no idea who I am”.
‘It’s like having a bit of an invisible superpower, but you’re actually just standing there laughing your head off deep inside.’
Last week, Alien became the first contestant on the new series of The Masked Singer UK to be unmasked.
After landing in the bottom three with Swan and Badger, Alien was selected by the panellists to get the chop, revealing singer Sophie Ellis-Bextor under the costume.
Mel has now also been revealed, but who will be next?
The Masked Singer returns on Saturday at 7pm on ITV.
