Geri Horner has finally hit back at claims that her secret Spice Girls fling with Mel B lasted for a year, calling the reports untrue – and the good news is that the tour is still on.
The singer has said that she loves all her bandmates and is looking forward to touring with them this year, so hopefully there shouldn’t be too many awkward moments on stage this summer.
A week ago, Mel B left the audience at a recording of Piers Morgan’s Life Stories open mouthed when she revealed that she and Horner had slept together during their Spice Girls days.
Despite staying silent on the subject for a week, Horner has finally responded to the story after rumours that the romance had not been a one-night stand and had in fact gone on for at least a year.
A statement released to MailOnline read: “It has been very disappointing to read about all these rumours again, especially on Mother’s Day of all days.
“Geri loves the Spice Girls: Emma, Melanie, Melanie and Victoria. She would like [the fans] to know that what has been reported recently is simply not true and has been very hurtful to her family.
“Moving forward, Geri can’t wait to see the girls and all the fans on the tour, have an amazing time with everyone, and make some new memories.”
Horner appears to have been responding just to the most recent claims that she and Mel B had been together for a year, made to the Mail on Sunday by an anonymous friend.
Mel B had seemed to tell Morgan in the TV recording that it had been a one-night only affair, simply nodding when asked if she had ever slept with Horner.

She added: “She’s going to hate me for this because she’s all posh in her country house with her husband.”
Horner posted a Mother’s Day photo on social media where she looked to be enjoying her posh country house in the company of youngest child Monty, two.
She is also mum to Bluebell, 12, and spent Mother’s Day weekend at home with her children while husband Christian Horner, the Formula 1 team boss, was away at the Grand Prix in Bahrain.
Revelations about the romance between Horner and Mel B seems to be news to their bandmates, as during the Piers Morgan recording Mel C was shown looking shocked in the audience.
When a squirming Mel B called out to her “why can’t you answer this for me?”, she replied “I don’t know anything, this is all new to me”.
