Rumours of a feud between Mel B and Geri Horner were fuelled yesterday when the Spice Girls arrived to the first rehearsals for their upcoming tour.

Geri, Mel C and Emma Bunton were pictured arriving, but Mel B wasn’t anywhere to be seen.

However, Baby Spice Emma cleared up speculation on This Morning, revealing the real reason Scary Spice wasn’t there.

“Me, Geri and Mel C were there. Mel B is in LA as she still has commitments and her children,” she said.

“She’s rehearsing there, which is really funny. She learns the same steps as us. We’re face-timing. We’re doing the same rehearsals but she’s there.”

She added that they would all be together as a foursome very soon, saying: “[Mel B] comes over soon.

“I think she’s coming over in the next few weeks and then we learn it all together.”

America’s Got Talent judge Mel B previously told Piers Morgan on his Life Stories that she and Geri had slept together years ago.

Geri has since denied the claims in a statement that 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 [Beckham]. 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,” it continued.

Emma Bunton herself has said that Mel B’s claims should be taken with “a pinch of salt”.

This Morning is on ITV weekdays at 10.30am.
