Geri Horner slams Spice Girls critics and insists all is well

May 21, 2019

Geri Horner has told Spice Girls critics to “f**k off” and insisted everyone is excited for their reunion tour.

The 46-year-old star has hit back at claims of a rift between the iconic girl group - completed by Mel B, Mel C and Emma Bunton - and she said they are all looking forward to being back on stage together.

Speaking to The Sun’s Dan Wootton about the various rumours surrounding the group, she said: “You think, ‘oh f**k off!’... Our relationship is really good. We’ve all been really positive, so it’s nice. It’s natural. I’m really happy, everyone’s happy.”

Although the feeling in the camp is a positive one, Geri has claimed it is “human nature” for people to speculate on people focusing on the negatives within the band, but she added that the buildup to the tour feels like a dream.

She added: “It’s human nature. I try and focus on what’s important now. Let’s enjoy what we have now, what’s real and what’s important.

“It’s all fine so I feel lucky. We keep on pinching ourselves because we’re trying to enjoy the journey.”

Her comments come after it was reported Mel B was rushed to hospital rushed to hospital on Friday (17.05.19) after losing her sight.

The ‘Wannabe’ hitmaker - who has no vision in her left eye after laser surgery went wrong - was rushed to London’s Moorfield Eye Hospital after she was suddenly unable to see out of her right eye.

Mel arrived at the specialist facility wearing an eye patch and reportedly said: “I can’t see anything -- I am totally blind.”

A source added to The Sun on Sunday newspaper: “She was clearly in a lot of pain.”

The 43-year-old star was later transferred to Luton and Dunstable Hospital’s ophthalmology department and once her vision returned, she defied doctors orders to rejoin her bandmates at tour rehearsals.

Mel underwent “very swift and very good” care but will still require medication and further intensive treatment, likely to include more trips to hospital.
