Spice Girl Mel C has insisted that she's not interesting in looking for love or dating as she is too focused on being a good mother.

The 39-year-old singer, who has been single since splitting from Thomas Starr in 2012 after 10 years together, explained that she has no plans to get back on the dating scene any time soon.

Speaking to OK! magazine, Mel, who has a four-year-old daughter with Thomas, said ''Dating isn't on the agenda at the moment. I've got my little girl, who is my priority, and my career. If a nice chap comes along then wonderful, but I don't know whether I want to put myself through the pain of dating.

"There are so many of us in our 30s and 40s, single girls, if you're ambitious then your career comes first and the man goes on the backburner.''

The I Turn to You singer further revealed that she has no desire to use dating services, adding: ''I wouldn't know, I've never dated anyone in the industry ... I've got friends who do The Guardian's Soulmates (newspaper dating) but I can't do something like that, can I? Can you imagine?''
