Mel C's secret snog with Cardle

Mel C had no problem kissing Matt Cardle

Mel C has revealed that she and Matt Cardle had a "cheeky secret snog" off-screen before cameras captured the big moment for their music video.

The pair get up close and personal and share a passionate kiss in the music video for their new single Loving You, and the singer - best known as Sporty Spice - admitted that the former X Factor winner helped to calm her nerves before they kissed for real.

"I've never had a love interest in a video before so I was really nervous beforehand. I've always felt too self-conscious before, and never really had the confidence to do it," she told the Daily Mirror.

"As they were setting up this particular scene, Matt and I were chatting and I told him I'd never done this before. As cringy and embarrassing as that was, we did have a cheeky little secret snog before we went down to do it for real on set.

"It was lovely. And because it made us all a bit giggly, it really brought us together."

The 39-year-old added: "But because this song is really sexy, it felt relevant - we weren't just doing it for the sake of it. And to be fair, it's not a hardship snogging Matt Cardle."

Mel - whose full name is Melanie Chisholm - teased that their on-screen chemistry spilled off-screen.

"We are both technically single but I think, in this instance, I should try and maintain a professional relationship... unfortunately!" she said.

Loving You, the first single from Matt's as-yet-untitled new album, will be released on August 18.

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Virgo:

A home improvement project will grind to a halt. Someone who is close to your heart may need some peace and quiet. Be prepared to send a repair professional away while your loved one recovers. If you're renting a space, your landlord may tell you to leave with very little notice. Stay calm. It will be easier to find new living arrangements if you remain logical. Spread the word on social media. Be specific about your needs. A friend or acquaintance may hear of somewhere suitable for you.More
