Meanwhile, Melanie previously claimed that her public image still doesn't chime with her real-life self.
The pop star believes she's been seen as a symbol of "ladette culture" since the 90s, but in reality, Melanie actually sees herself as "quite quiet" and "really gentle".
She shared: "I had this tomboy image and I loved my football, people thought I was a bit mouthy, a bit loud, part of that ladette culture.
"And, you know, I'm really quite quiet, and I'm really gentle. That was hard for me for a few years. I found it really confusing."
Melanie underwent therapy for clinical depression in the early 2000s.
But the chart-topping singer thinks the arrival of her 11-year-old daughter Scarlet proved to be a turning point in her life.
She said: "Being a mum was so liberating because for the first time in my adult life, it wasn't all about me.
"It made me not only realise I had a huge responsibility to her but I have a huge responsibility to myself. In being her teacher, I had to treat myself better."
