Melanie BrownFormer Spice Girls member Melanie Brown has said that the only person who can help reunite the band on time for the 2012 Olympic Games in London is their ex manager Simon Fuller.

The singer is keen on making the group, which also includes Victoria Beckham, Geri Halliwell, Melanie Chisholm and Emma Bunton, comeback with a big concert.

“If anyone can pull this off Simon Fuller can. He is the best!” the Daily Express quoted her as saying.

Meanwhile, Brown is also optimistic of bringing the girls back together.

He told U.S. news show Access Hollywood, “I”m from the U.K. and I think it”s amazing the Olympics are gonna (sic) be in London and I look forward to being there with the girls.

“They (Spice Girls) stand for so much in British music history and I can”t think of a better time for them to get back together for another performance. The demand for them as a band is as strong as ever.”

MelanieSinger Melanie Brown has urged British government to step up efforts to tackle poverty.

The former Spice Girl claimed some of the poorest people in society have been left feeling “abandoned”.

“The Government have got to admit there”s a massive problem here. We need to work together to change things,” the Mirror quoted her as saying.

Brown was speaking out after spending a week on a run-down council estate in her native Leeds for an ITV documentary, ‘7 Days On The Breadline’.

The show saw Mel B looking after five kids, aged six, eight, 12, 16 and 18, on a budget of just 264 pounds a week.

“I did it to make a point and show that just because you”re a celebrity, you can live on benefits. But even I was shocked by the scale of what I saw,” she said.

Kids hanging around on street corners, open drug dealing and a culture of fear and intimidation were just a few of the problems Mel had to face.

She said: “The Government doesn”t seem to be trying to find out how to help people in council estates.

“Give them a community centre or at least something for the kids to do to enrich their lives.”

“The kids are bored and that always leads to trouble. Whether it”s a library, somewhere to play basketball or take a computer course. Give them a sense of achievement. The kids just resorted to hanging about or wasting away watching TV. It was really sad,” she added.
