Mel B 'cut out' of Spice Girls reunion hug sparking fears she hasn't been forgiven for revealing Geri Halliwell romp
TENSIONS in the Spice Girls camp appear to riding high after Mel B was snubbed from a group hug sparking fears Geri Horner still hasn't forgiven her for revealing they had sex.
In a shot from behind the scenes of the girls' new Walkers Crisps as in London Geri, Emma Bunton and Mel C share a smiley hug while Mel is nowhere to be seen.
With the launch of their much-anticipated summer stadium tour just three weeks away, fans will be hoping they will have buried the hatchet come showtime.
Things looked a lot rosier in another shot which showed all four girls walking side by side with smiles on their faces.
Mel previously said she spoke to Geri "at length" after her bombshell confession that they shared a night of lesbian sex – but told her: "Don't worry about it."
Referring to their one-night stand as "just one of those things that happened", the 43-year-old revealed Geri has been on the phone non-stop.
Speaking to Aussie radio station 2Day about her confession on Piers Morgan's Life Stories, she said: "I couldn't even speak to your producer earlier because I was on the phone with Geri.
"I did the interview, but I just texted her and said: 'I admitted on Piers that we had a little bit of a thing but don't worry about it, it was all tongue in cheek and I didn't go into detail.'
"'I said: 'This was pre your husband, pre your baby, pre one of my babies. It's fine.' I don't know why everyone's making such a big deal about it."
She added: "We had a long conversation. She texted me the night of [the interview] and then we spoke at length today – amongst other things cos we're getting ready for tour right now."

Referring to the night of passion, laid-back Mel told hosts Grant, Ed and Ash: "It wasn't like a big deal.
"We've known each other for 20-plus years. It was just one of those things that happened one night. And I didn't go into detail about it at all.
"I just said it was a little thing and we giggled about it the next day and that's that. It's not a big deal, especially not in this day and age."
Mel B made her confession on Piers's show, where he asked her: "You were coming here to be brutally honest – did or didn't you sleep with Geri Halliwell?"
She swerved the question, saying: "Yeah. We all slept in a bed together, but not like that, all of us."
Piers pinned the 43-year-old down, asking: "Did you sleep with Geri like that?"
She smiled and eventually nodded – as Piers squawked: "Yes? Really?"
Until now their romp had been so hush-hush that Mel had left it out of her upcoming autobiography Brutally Honest.
