Texas singer Sharleen Spiteri reveals the ‘worst thing’ she’s ever done as she tells how she served spat out food to a rude customer

Sharleen Spiteri has revealed the ‘worst thing’ she has ever done in her life as she detailed how she got her own back on a rude customer.

The Texas lead singer, 55, told how she got her revenge on a woman who was ‘horrible’ to staff and made an assistant ‘cry’ at a Glasgow salon where she worked.

Speaking to Martin Compston and Gordon Smart on the Restless Natives podcast, Sharleen told how she served spat out food to the unpleasant customer.

She explained how the woman would always demand that a member of staff fetched her a tuna roll from a nearby sandwich shop, leading to Sharleen’s revenge plot.

Describing it as the worst thing she has ever done, Sharleen told how she once chewed the tuna and spat it back out into the roll before serving it to the woman.

She recalled: ‘I know the worst thing I have ever done. When I was a hairdresser there was this woman that used to come in on a Saturday morning as soon as the doors opened.

‘She must have been about late fifties or early sixties and she was a pain in the a**e. She was horrible to everybody.

‘This new junior had just started and she made her cry so I said ‘Listen, let me show a trick that will make you feel better.’

‘The woman would always send somebody across the road to get her a tuna roll.

‘So when the girl brought the roll back I put a big bit of tuna in my mouth, chewed it and spat it right back into the roll.

‘I cut it for her, took it back up the stairs and watched her eat it. So never, ever be mean to anybody, she made this young girl cry.’

‘My name’s not Spiteri for nothing,’ she quipped.

Her confession comes after Sharleen had a very awkward exchange with Sunday Brunch’s Tim Lovejoy when she told him to ‘shut up’ on air.

The interaction came when the host, 55, and his co-presenter Simon Rimmer had a debate about the weather at Glastonbury ahead of Sharleen’s gig at the festival.

Tim told how he likes it when it rains at Glastonbury rather than having warm, sunny weather, prompting the Scottish singer to tell him to ‘shut up’.

Emma Bunton then got involved and insisted that she too likes dancing in the rain at festivals, prompting a look of disbelief from Sharleene.

She hit back with: ‘You enjoy dancing in the rain from the side of the stage,’ hinting the Spice Girl would likely have backstage passes under cover and not be out in the crowd with everyone else.
