‘The times when we were in London, all those times in the early 2000s, we would be meeting everybody, but not the Spice Girls!’
After being unmasked, Michelle revealed the significance behind her performance of Say Something by A Great Big World and Christina Aguilera.
‘Can I talk about the performance. We were all on the verge of tears. What does that song mean to you?’ Chrissie Swan asked.
Michelle explained: ‘It’s no secret I was engaged and it did not work out. I just remember those words. It kind of articulated this is what I’ve been wanting to say.’
‘It’s until you really emote it in full voice, it was almost like therapy. And so it just came out in that way. That’s what music can do to you when you just let it go.’
