I just checked:
sudo apt-get install aspell-en
sudo apt-get install hunspell-en-gb
and both reported the latest versions installed.

AAMOI I had reason to build another copy of Mint 18.1 on another box and
I installed CM 3.14.1 on that and spell checking worked without any
problem. This is definitely a local machine issue.

As you may have detected my speeling isn't the best in the world, so it
would be good to solve this!
