Official Spice Girls T-shirts sold to raise money for Comic Relief's 'gender justice' campaign were made in a Bangladesh factory where women earn 35p an hour.


Money raised from the 'IWannaBeASpiceGirl 'T-shirts, which cost £19.40, will be used to help 'champion equality for women and girls here in the UK,' according to Comic Relief.

喜劇救濟基金會表示,這款售價19.4英鎊、胸前印著“我想成為一枚辣妹”的T恤,銷售款項將被用來 “捍衛英國的女人和女孩們的平等”。

Dozens of celebrities have been spotted sporting the garments, including Jessie J, Holly Willoughby, Sam Smith and Jessica Ennis-Hill.


Uploading a picture of himself wearing the T-shirt on Instagram, Sam Smith said: 'Everyone please please go and support the Spice Girls and their power up campaign with comic relief by purchasing one of these cute t shirts. It's for a beautiful cause #iwannabeaspicegirl.'


While both Willoughby and Ennis-Hill also uploaded pictures of themselves wearing the T-shirts to Instagram with the hashtag #iwannabeaspicegirl.


The Spice Girls themselves - now comprising Melanie Brown, Melanie Chisholm, Emma Bunton and Geri Halliwell - also posed in the T-shirts to launch the campaign.


The news comes as the Spice Girls announced they would no longer be singing and dancing under the banner of 'Girl Power' anymore.


Instead they would be using the slogan 'People Power', a move which Buton explained 'about equality and bringing everyone together.'
