Singer Mel C is quitting her London home for a quiet life in the Welsh countryside - because she's sick of being in the limelight.

The former SPICE GIRL star has reportedly become disillusioned with her career since being ditched by her record label earlier this year (04), and she's now made settling down with her boyfriend THOMAS STARR at her peaceful farmhouse in the Wye Valley her number one priority.

According to Britain's NOW magazine, Mel C - who recently rubbished reports she snubbed an offer to reform the Spice Girls - is more excited about the prospect of being at one with nature than spending her nights at glitzy parties and film premieres.
