'There's no way he's invited': Danielle Brown desperate for sister Mel B to be at her wedding – but without husband Stephen

She fell out with her famous sister three years ago over her dislike of her sibling's husband.
And Danielle Brown has said that she wants nothing more than for her Spice Girl sister Mel B to be at her wedding.
But there's one condition – her husband Stephen Belafonte stays away.
Betrothed: Danielle Brown today announced her engagement to George Lee and said how much she would like her estranged sister Mel B to be at the wedding
Danielle, 31, made her demands as she and fianc George Lee celebrated their engagement.
He proposed to her in Richmond Park in London a couple of weeks ago while they spent the day there with their two children Mimi, four, and 21-month-old Hendrix.
And speaking to OK! magazine, she said she would hate it if Mel missed her big day and she is desperate to have her there.
She said: 'I love my sister and my nieces and I want them to be at my wedding. The whole family will be there – it would be so sad if Mel wasn't.
But she said that if Mel does attend, she will have to come without her husband Stephen.
Your name's not down: Danielle has made it clear that while sister Mel is welcome, her husband Stephen Belafonte most certainly is not
Danielle added: 'There is absolutely no way Stephen is invited. I don't want to be anywhere near that man. He's not welcome at all.'
Mel and Danielle fell out with one another four years ago over Stephen over concerns that she and her family had about the man, although Danielle will still not talk about what triggered the family's concern as it was 'too upsetting'.
But in her interview with OK!, she said she was worried about her older sister, who now lives in Australia, and doesn't think it's healthy that she doesn't have any of her family around her.
And Danielle added: 'It's horrible to see Mum and Dad suffering, it's their first born child, their baby.'
Sisterly love: Danielle and Mel used to be very close, but this is one of the last pictures taken of the two of them together, at an awards bash in 2000
