Melanie Brown, aka Scary Spice, confirmed that she hooked up with Geri ‘Ginger Spice’ Horner (née Halliwell) at the peak of their Spice Girls days.

Tell me more

Mel B, who has previously come out as bisexual, appeared on Piers Morgan’s Life Stories on Friday, 22 March. It was here that she spilled the beans about her sexual relationship with Geri, all with groupmate Mel C in the audience.

When Morgan asked Mel B to clarify rumors that she ‘had a dabble’ with Geri, Mel was skeptical to answer at first, but then said, ‘She had great boobs.’

When pressed further, she said, ‘She [Geri] is going to hate me for this because she is all posh in her country house and her husband, but it’s a fact. It just happened and we just giggled at it and that was it.’

‘We were best friends. It just happened.’

‘So just once?’ Morgan asked.

‘Yeah,’ Mel B replied.

‘This is a bombshell. A Spice Girls bombshell,’ Morgan responded. ‘You have never admitted this before have you? People are going to be fascinated.’

‘Yeah and I have said it now. All done. She is going to kill me and so is her husband,’ Mel B stated. ‘Hopefully when Geri gets asked that, which hopefully she will after this, she won’t deny it, because it was just a thing, a fun thing.’

Mel C’s reaction

Morgan turned to Melanie Chisholm, aka Sporty Spice, sitting in the audience. She mouthed, ‘I don’t know anything.’ Mel B responded, ‘Oh, whatever, Mel.’

‘This is all new to me,’ Mel C stated.

However, Mel B also admitted that all the girls (including Mel C) kissed after she got her tongue pierced.

‘But that was just a kiss because I wanted to know what it felt like. It was just a silly kiss. Nothing sexual like that.’

Anything else?

Up until now, this hookup with Geri was so private that Mel didn’t even include it in her autobiography, Brutally Honest.

After filming the interview, Brown allegedly called up Horner to apologize in advance for the reveal, in case it upset her husband. As the Spice Girls reunion tour is just a couple months away, there is a fear this revelation would jeopardize it.

‘…the girls all know Mel struggles to keep her mouth shut. But Mel C who was in the audience was visibly horrified when it all came out. The [Spice Girls reunion] tour is just two months away they don’t want anything jeopardizing it, but there were real fears this would upset Geri’s husband and cause serious issues,’ a source told The Sun.

Back in 2010, Geri, in her own interview with Piers Morgan, praised Mel B.

‘She’s absolutely beautiful,’ Horner said at the time. ‘She’s absolutely gorgeous, even more gorgeous in real life.’

‘She had great boobs,’ Horner added.

Piers Morgan’s Life Stories will air on ITV in the UK this summer.
