Mel opened up to Cosmopolitan U.K. about why this cause is important to her:
"I found a lump when I was 17 and freaked out. It turned out it was nothing but it terrified me. Ever since, I’ve always been one for checking, then double checking."
Now her husband Stephen Belefonte helps with breast checks:
"I’m a boob man so I had absolutely no problem doing this shoot or helping my wife check her breasts. What man wouldn’t like that? It’s a fun thing to do and so very important."
But Mel also thinks it's fun:
'I love boobs. Me and the other Spice Girls are always having a feel of each other’s – Geri came up behind me and grabbed mine the other day.'
