Zaraah Abrahams has revealed the obscure link she has to Spice Girls singer Mel B.
The 35 year old, who plays Chelsea Fox on BBC soap EastEnders, has told her Instagram followers that she provided the voice for the audiobook of 46 year old Mel's autobiography Brutally Honest in 2018.
In a Q&A session with her 23,000 followers on the social media platform, one of her fans asked: "Did you do the voice over for Mel B's audiobook on Audible?"
Zaraah shared a photo of herself with the singer, announcing that she had in fact recorded the audiobook, writing: "Yes.. Honoured."
A video from the audition process shows Mel getting emotional as she listened to Zaraah read an extract from her autobiography while auditioning for the job.
Zaraah tells Mel: "I think that this book is going to resonate with women so deeply.
"I think it's just going to be a breath of fresh air for so many people," she continues, as Mel replies: "You did a great job, you made me cry."
Breaking the news to Zaraah that she had got the job, Mel said: "I want to tell you a few things. I think you're absolutely amazing.
"You made me cry, you know that. The fact that you cried made me cry even more because I know that you embodied my story."

Mel continued: "I'm scared to do it, that's why I can't do it, because it's way too painful for me.
"You captured every single emotion, you're brilliant," she continued as the pair hugged.
EastEnders viewers have recently tensely watched as Zaraah's on-screen husband Gray Atkins, played by Toby-Alexander Smith, was finally caught for the murders of his wife Chantelle, Tina Carter and Kush Kazemi.
Speaking about his exit from the soap, Toby told Digital Spy: "I think all of the audience have obviously wanted justice for Chantelle, Tina and Kush for so long and it was important that we showed that justice and that comeuppance.
"There was no room for him to have an easy way out and it would have been wrong if they'd have done that.
"I do think, from the audience's perspective, it's a satisfying ending to the storyline."
