LONDON (Reuters Life!) - Former Spice Girls singer Melanie Brown is to auction the contents of her home, including outfits and items from the British girl band's heyday, after her move to the United States.

Popularly known as Scary Spice or Mel B, Brown has put the memorabilia up for auction online to raise money for a charity that cares for children and young people suffering from cancer.

Among the collectibles open to bids are costumes from the recent Spice Girls reunion tour, the coat from the "Stop" video and her trademark fake fur outfit consisting of a bikini top and matching mini-skirt.

The items will also include the outfit she wore when she and her fellow Spice Girls met former South African President Nelson Mandela.

A motorbike, Bechstein baby grand piano and MTV Cribs dining table will also be up for grabs.

Fans will even be able to get their hands on jugs, tables and toasters.

Bidders can log on to www.melbsale.com/ between September 26 and October 26, with all proceeds going to CLIC Sargent.

The charity has teamed up with philanthropic bidding network Buy Once Give Twice and Internet auction site eBay.

The auction follows Mel B's move to the west coast of the United States.   Continued...
