Talk about Scary Spice -- Mel B is recovering in hospital after an accident left her with broken ribs and a "severed hand" that required immediate surgery.

The Spice Girl was staying at a friend's house Saturday night. She was asleep in an upstairs bedroom when she woke up and decided to go downstairs, she lost her footing and fell injuring herself in the process. 

Mel posted a photo of herself on the mend early Monday that featured her in a sling ... and a gruesome (yet vague) description of what happened:
