Spice Girl Melanie Brown is auctioning off the contents of her former home in the UK to raise money for charity.

Items on offer include a "Scary Spice" leopard print outfit, the coat used in the Stop video and five Roberto Cavalli outfits from the Spices' recent tour.

"I hope that people have fun bidding on a piece of me," said the singer, who is now based in Los Angeles.

Proceeds from the online auction, which runs until 26 October, will go to children's cancer charity Clic Sargent.

"As a mother, it was important to me to be a part of an organisation that provides clinical, emotional and financial support to children and young people with cancer and their families," said Brown.

'Personal value'

Other garments up for grabs include a jumpsuit Mel B wore at the Spice Girls' first live performance in Birmingham and the suit she was wearing when she met Prince Charles for the first time in 1997.

The sale also features a baby grand piano, a pair of leopard print boots, a harp and a motorbike.

"Every single one of these items has a personal value to me," said the 33-year-old, who is carving out a new career in the US as a TV presenter.

The mother-of-two will be seen next month co-hosting the 13th Mobo Awards at Wembley Arena.
