All eyes were on the Spice Girls’ Instagrams over the weekend, when the world-famous girl group reunited in Ginger Spice’s honour.

Geri Horner threw a star-studded bash to mark her 50th birthday on Saturday (5 November), and her bandmates took to social media to post snaps and clips of the party.

However, one Spice Girl was seemingly absent from the antics.

Scary Spice (Melanie Brown) was the Spice Girl in question, and it appears she didn’t join her bandmates over the weekend, with Victoria Beckham, Emma Bunton and Melanie C all turning up to support Geri.

Tyla has approached Mel B’s representatives for comment.

According to The Sun, Geri spent an eye-watering £400,000 on the party, which was supposed to be held in September but was postponed because of Queen Elizabeth II’s death.

Celebrities such as Rylan, Holly Willoughby and Poppy Delevingne all gathered at the sprawling Oxfordshire home Geri shares with her husband Christian Horner to mark the occasion.

Reporting on the bash, The Sun said: “It was the sort of party where the second you walk in you know no expense has been spared.

“Geri knows how to party so for her 50th she was determined to pull out all the stops.”

Mel B confirmed in an interview published the same day as Geri’s birthday that she is engaged to Rory McPhee, who she’s been dating for around three years.

Mel also opened up about her fellow Spice Girls’ reaction, telling HELLO!: “Emma [Bunton] cried, so did Mel C. All of them were delighted for us and said, ‘We love Rory, he's amazing’ and they've all sent congratulations cards.”

She went on: “I do care about their opinion and it's really special to me that they like Rory so much, because they've never liked any of my boyfriends and they've been quite clear about that.

“They were actually pushing me towards Rory for ages before the two of us became romantic, but I'd say to them, ‘It's not like that; he's just a really good friend who makes me feel safe’.”

Mel B even revealed how Rory proposed, sharing: “We went for a walk around the grounds [of Cliveden in Berkshire] with the dogs before dinner and on the way back, Rory suddenly said, ‘I'm going to go back to the room and put the fire on’.

“I didn't think anything of it, but I did get this funny feeling in my stomach. Then, as I walked through the door, he got down on one knee."
