Williams poured praised on Mel B, Mel C, Emma Bunton, Victoria Beckham and Geri Haliwell - known as Scary, Sporty, Baby, Posh and Ginger spice - insisting they paved the way for other all-female groups to reach number 1.

She told Britain's London Lite newspaper: "The Spice Girls were such great role models for Destiny's Child. We loved that they were a strong, female group that became a megastar brand."
