Mel B has quit her role as a team captain on Celebrity Juice.

The Spice Girl joined the show last year, replacing Paddy McGuinness on the long-running panel show.

A Celebrity Juice spokesperson told the Daily Star: “Mel has been a brilliant team captain and we’d like to thank her for all the laughs.”

“We have no doubt she’ll be back to banter with Keith as a guest on the show in the near future.”

“A brand-new series of Celebrity Juice will be on ITV2 this Autumn with two new team captains and a whole host of guests.. watch this space!” they added.

The news comes just two months after Holly Willoughby quit her role as a team captain on Celebrity Juice, after 12 years on the show.

Sharing a collage of photos from her time on the show, Holly wrote on Instagram: “Thank you @celebjuiceofficial for 12 years of fantastic chaos… I can’t quite believe what we’ve done and how quick that time has gone.”

“Thank you to you all for watching..we’ve always had the loudest and best audiences. Also a huge thank you to @itv2 for believing in the show in the first place and for all of your support…”
