Melanie Chisholm parties through heartache

Melanie Chisholm put her love split behind her on Thursday (12Jul12) by partying at a London nightclub with pals including Australian entertainer Jason Donovan.

The former Spice Girls star announced on Monday (09Jul12) she has parted from Thomas Starr, her boyfriend of 10 years and the father of her three-year-old daughter, Scarlet.

But she smiled through her pain on Thursday night when she attended a summer party for British TV network ITV at London venue Aqua.

Melanie Chisholm was pictured grinning broadly and posing with singer/actor Donovan on the red carpet before heading inside the club.
