Mel B is selling her Los Angeles home for $3.45m.

The former Spice Girl has decided to put the lavish property, which is located in the Tarzana district of the city, on the market.

The 8,200 square foot estate boasts five bedrooms, eight bathrooms, a private gym, a home cinema, a swimming pool and a recording studio.

It also has "5-star resort-like grounds" and an outdoor living area complete with a chandeliered dining room, an outdoor kitchen and an outdoor living room.

The ‘Mel B: It’s a Scary World’ star bought the house – which has been listed with Coldwell Banker Beverly Hills South - for $3.2m in 2009.

Mel shares the property with her husband Stephen Belafonte and their four-month-old baby Madison and her two daughters, Phoenix, 12, and Angel, four, from previous relationships.

The ‘Wannabe’ singer has lived in Los Angeles for eight years but recently admitted she would consider returning to her native UK if she was offered a good career opportunity.

She said: “I love the UK. If I thought there was a good enough job offer, then of course I'd come back. But, you know, I love the UK, I love visiting - I was born and bred in Leeds. But I've been living in the States for eight years now."
