“I love learning, so it’s a great feeling to be here,” she said while speaking in front of hundreds of graduates.

The university announced that Halliwell’s selection to receive the degree was in recognition of her commitment to being an inspiration to children and young people, fighting for women’s rights and excellence in the music industry for the past 25 years.

“I think Sheffield Hallam University is an amazing institution. It’s very diverse and inclusive,” she said.

“When they offered me this honorary doctorate, I was honored and grateful.

Halliwell, 50, also explained that although she didn’t go on to university she really enjoyed English literature at A-Level, before choosing to “start a different adventure with the Spice Girls”.

The singer, songwriter, book author and actress made a name for herself around the 1990s with the Spice Girls, with album sales exceeding 100 million units worldwide.

She however left the Spice Girls in 1999 to start a solo career.
