The Masked Singer judge Mel B reveals why she told Dave Hughes to 'f**k off' the first time they met


The Masked Singer Australia judge Mel B has spoken of her frosty relationship with co-star Dave ‘Hughesy’ Hughes, days after he claimed she’d told him to ‘f**k off’ the first time they met. 

Mel, whose real name is Melanie Brown and also goes by Scary Spice, recently joined the judging panel of the reality show for the 2022 season. 

Appearing on Hughesy’s Hit FM radio show on Wednesday, Mel, 47, defended her confrontational behaviour by explaining she thought Hughsey was ‘a bit creepy’ when they first crossed paths. 

‘[What I said] was something along those lines [of ‘f**k off] because he was being a bit creepy… a bit stare-y. And I’m like, ‘What are you doing?” she told Hughsey, Ed and Erin. 

Mel however insisted that she and Hughsey learned to tolerate each other over time. 

‘I know he’s got a beautiful wife, great kids… that also don’t want to spend that much time with him, because they went away on holiday,’ Mel joked.

‘But I do feel like he’s ‘that guy’. He just needs a bit of help’, she added with a laugh. 

Mel later admitted that while she often clashes with Hughsey, her daughter is actually one of his biggest fans.

‘We were in the car the other day and we were playing car games like we usually do… and all my daughter kept doing is talking about you,’ Mel admitted.

‘She wouldn’t even play the game. She saw a poster of you and she screamed, ‘There’s Dave’, and I’m like, ‘What? Play the car game.’ 

‘And for 45 minutes before work, she’s just like, ‘Oh my god he’s so funny mum, isn’t he? He’s so funny!’ So you do have a fan, my daughter.’

Mel didn’t mention her daughter by name, but it is believed she was referring to her youngest child Madison Brown Belafonte, 10.

It comes days after Hughsey revealed his tumultuous relationship with his Masked Singer co-star Mel during an interview with The Sunday Project. 

‘We’ve got a new panel. We’re actually already filming, and it’s hectic! Absolutely hectic. I tell you what – I know why Scary Spice is called Scary Spice,’ Hughsey said. 

‘I love her, and she knows it, but me and her have a relationship going. She told me to beep off in our first meeting’.

When asked why the pair have a tendency to lock horns, Dave said they both have strong personalities.   

‘Because I’ve got my own ideas and she has hers, and sometimes they clash. I love her though. And she knows I love her,’ Dave continued. 

He went on to explain that Mel gets annoyed when he picks the names of dead celebrities when trying to guess who is behind the infamous masks on the offbeat singing competition.

'We've got a new panel. We're actually already filming, and it's hectic! Absolutely hectic. I tell you what - I know why Scary Spice is called Scary Spice,' the funnyman said

‘I keep guessing dead people on the show. She doesn’t understand that’s my thing. She just doesn’t understand,’ he said. 

Hughsey added that Mel ‘knows every celebrity in the world’ and gets irritated when he guesses her A-list friends are behind the masks. 

‘When I guess Taylor Swift, she goes, ‘I know Taylor. She isn’t that tall’. I said, ‘You haven’t seen her for a few months – she might have shrunk.”
