The Wannabe singer in a conversation with Metro told the outlet how this experience throws a different light on the world. She admitted being shocked to discover the lack of diversity in the western U.S. state.

“So even though Colorado is massive, the whole world is massive, but when it actually comes down to it where people of color, whether it be mixed or brown or some kind of mix of ethnicity, they kind of have it even harder, people of color.”

The Spice Girls member shared,  “I thought that there wasn’t as much racism as there was say when my mum had me 47 years ago, but it’s still there.”

She added that this changed her outlook stating, “It kind of changed my outlook. Throughout the whole show, I was saying, ‘Is there anybody brown or mixed or Black in this town? Is there anybody?’ I always find myself looking.”

Trailblazers: A Rocky Mountain Road Trip will air on 28 November at 9 pm on BBC Two and Player.
