Mel C is attracted to younger men because she forgets she isn't their age any more.
Mel C is attracted to younger men.
The 40-year-old singer has been single since splitting from Thomas Starr, the father of her five-year-old daughter Scarlet, in 2012, and admits she often forgets her own age when she is checking guys out.
She said: ''It's funny - I see all these beautiful young girls with amazing jobs and I'm like, 'Where are their guys at?' My problem is I'm going 'He's quite cute', to guys who are obviously much too young for me.
''Then I look in the mirror and go 'Crap! I'm not 25 anymore!'
''If someone came along that would be great. But I'm a mummy and my career is important to me.''
While she forgets she isn't in her 20s anymore, she insists she is enjoying her life more now than she did then.
She added in an interview with Now magazine: ''The beauty of age is I'm more relaxed about things now. My priorities changed when I became a mum. The negatives are the physical things, like wrinkles. Yuck! But I'm honestly happier now than I was in my twenties.''
