Emma Bunton reveals REAL reason why Mel B was absent from Spice Girls rehearsals

The singer shut down speculation of a 'rift'


Emma Bunton has revealed the real reason why Mel B was absent from their Spice Girls rehearsals.

The singer was the only band member who didn’t attend their first rehearsal amid rumours of a rift in the group, following her claim that she “slept” with Geri Halliwell.

Emma was quick to shut down the speculation though and during her appearance on This Morning she revealed that Mel simply had previous “commitments.”

“Me, Geri and Mel C were there. Mel B is rehearsing in LA because she’s still got commitments and her children, so she’s rehearsing there, which is really funny,” she said.

“She learns the same steps as us… We were doing a bit of FaceTiming. We’re doing the same rehearsals, but obviously she’s there. And then she comes over soon.”

Emma added that she thinks the mother-of-three will join them for rehearsals “in the next few weeks, and then we all work together.”

The girlband are kicking off their comeback tour in Dublin’s Croke Park on 24th May.
