The last night of Spice Girl’s reunion tour took place on Sunday at Wembley Stadium.
So, perhaps Geri Horner felt it was her last chance to clear the air about her dramatic departure in 1998 before they all go their separate ways again.
Speaking at the packed gig, she wrapped her arms around the gals and said: “Something occurred to me this afternoon, I need to say something very important that I should have said a long time ago.
“To Emma, Melanie, to Melanie and to the fans, I am sorry I was just being a brat and I want to say that it’s just so good to be back with the girls that I love.”
Poor Victoria didn’t get a mention – maybe she’ll be apologising in 21 years for not joining them on this tour… but anyway…

Naturally, the girls then went on to sing Goodbye.
Ginger Spice left the band in 1998 in the middle of the European leg of the Spiceworld tour.
She announced her departure via her solicitor and the band’s spokesperson Alan Edwards saying: “This is a message to the fans, sadly I would like to confirm I have left the Spice Girls, this is because of differences between us. I am sure that the group will continue to be successful, and I wish them all the best. I have no immediate plans and I wish to apologise to all the fans and to thank them and everyone who’s been there. Lots of love Geri. PS: I will be back”
And hey, she did come back!
