She said: ‘I was so sad and I was really, really, really angry because we started this together, us five, and it wasn’t meant to happen if it’s not us five. And she left in Oslo on my birthday, the day before my birthday, just to really stick it to me. What a b****.’

More than friends? It was reported that Geri was not happy with Mel B’s admission earlier this year
Earlier this year, Mel claimed she had bedded Geri and after the racy admission hit the headlines, Piers shared a clip of the moment on GMB.
Mel C was seen looking shocked in the audience during the conversation.
Piers asked Mel: ‘You were coming here to be brutally honest – did or didn’t you sleep with Geri Halliwell? Did you sleep with her?’
Mel tried to dodge the question, telling Piers: ‘Yeah. We all slept in a bed together, but not like that, all of us.’
But a relentless Piers wouldn’t be denied, asking: ‘Did you sleep with Geri like that?’ to which Mel smiles and nods as a shocked Piers checks, ‘Yes? Really?’
In an emotional interview, Mel also opened up about her father’s death and the impact it had on her
‘She’s going to hate me for this because she’s all posh in her country house with her husband,’ adds Mel of Geri who is married to Formula 1 team boss Christian Horner.
Smiling, she said: ‘She’s not so posh anymore.’
Piers asked her how many times her and Geri slept together but Scary spice snapped back at the host, telling him not to be a ‘pervert’.
She insisted that they had only slept together once.
Mel also described Geri as ‘crazy’, saying: ‘I love Geri to bits, but she’s bats*** crazy. I’m crazy in just like a humble northern way, Geri’s crazy in a different way.’
Mel B also spoke about her relationship with Eddie Murphy, saying that he was ‘the love of her life’
Although they have since made up, Geri was believed to be upset over the revelation, with sources saying Mel B had ‘done damage’ to their friendship.
The source said: ‘Mel messaged the girls to tell them about what she had said after filming the interview, but she didn’t even say sorry.
‘She needs to do some serious grovelling to make up with Geri. This isn’t something she’s going to forget easily.’
Piers also questioned Mel on some of the rumours about what she and the Spice Girls would do in front of room service antics during their heyday.
She revealed that Mel C would answer the door in a t-shirt, while the three other Spice Girls would be walking around in their underwear.
In the emotional interview, she also revealed her heartbreak over her father’s death and how her relationship with Stephen Belafonte led to her trying to take her own life

She said: ‘It was a laugh. I found it funny.’
The singer also spoke about her relationship with Eddie Murphy, saying that he was ‘the love of her life’.
Expressing her regret over their bitter split, the singer detailed how she first met Eddie, 58, in her upcoming interview on Piers Morgan’s Life Stories.

‘I’ve always felt bad, but I couldn’t tell him. Right before, I said to him ”You can go now because I have to go and divorce this monster” and he just looked at me and took his last breath.’
