"She panicked and felt trapped, worried that she wouldn’t be able to get out.
"She was really shaken by the incident and wanted to get out of the car as quickly as possible when the driver turned nasty.
"She was relieved it happened in a public place."
Police are looking into the incident, but no arrests have been made at the time of writing.
The Met Police said: "Police are investigating an allegation of assault.
"The complainant, a 43-year-old woman, was allegedly spat at as she left a private hire vehicle.
"There have been no arrests and enquiries continue."
Myleene - who has daughters Ava, 13, and Hero, 10, from her marriage to Graham Quinn, and 19-month-old son Apollo with her fiancé Simon Motson - was being dropped off at Global's HQ in central London at the time, and photographers are said to have asked if she was OK following the incident.
She went on to present her two-hour radio show.
Following the show on Friday, Myleene tweeted: "Just finished my @SmoothRadio show. To announce the sad news of Prince Philip passing and then see the countless, respectful, truly lovely tributes pouring in was so moving. #ripprincephilip (sic)"
