Spice Girls make up after lesbian sex bombshell claims during first comeback show

The Spice Girls have used their first comeback show to address Scary Spice's steamy hook-up with Ginger Spice.

The pair got cozy as they took to the stage in Dublin last night, holding hands and hugging as they performed hit song 'Let Love Lead The Way'.

"We want to say thank you for coming here tonight and we want to share the good times and the bad,"Geri told the crowd.

"Real friends and real families go through ups and downs because they love each other. We love each other and we love you. We are still here and we are still together."

The band was reportedly thrown into turmoil during plans for their reunion tour following Mel B's admission that she and Geri Horner (née Halliwell) had a lesbian fling in the '90s.

During an interview with Piers Morgan, Scary Spice was asked if she had ever "dabbled" with Horner. Mel B answered: "She's going to hate me for this because she's all posh in her country house... but it's a fact.

"It just happened and we just giggled at it and that was it."

Sources told The Sun that Mel B then made a frantic phone call shortly after the interview to apologise to Horner but it apparently wasn't enough. Horner released a statement denying the claims, calling them "hurtful".

"It has been very disappointing to read about all these rumours again, especially on Mother's Day of all days," the statement read.

"Geri loves the Spice Girls... she would like [the fans] to know that what has been reported recently is simply not true and has been very hurtful to her family."

But any tensions appeared to have been put to bed during the first show of their reunion tour, at Dublin's Croke Park.

"Almost 25 years later and we're still doing it," Horner said in the show's official programme.

"Emma, you'll always be my little sister, (much to your annoyance) who I want to protect.

"Melanie B you're amazing up on that stage, Victoria you'll be missed, but here in spirit and Melanie C, what strength and focus you give us all, thank you. I love you all."
