Mel B believes the Spice Girls will get back together eventually and reveals the group recently had a falling out, she admits in her upcoming memoir, DailyMailTV can reveal.
The 43-year-old recounted the London meeting she had with her former bandmates in February, she writes in a draft of Brutally Honest, which is out on November 27.
Mel, known as Scary Spice in the band, said she originally arranged for the meeting to take place at The Connaught, a five-star hotel in Mayfair, west London.
But she says details of the meeting were leaked to the press so at the last minute it was switched to Geri’s house in North London, and she was the last to know.

Mel B (pictured on Sunday) writes Victoria Beckham didn’t want to go on tour and the rest of the group was unhappy with her decision, but she adds: ‘The Spice story – like mine – is not over yet’
‘We’re all at Geri’s house,’ their former manager Simon Fuller said on the phone to Mel after she got off a plane from LA. ‘I was totally thrown,’ writes Mel.
‘I was completely thrown that no one had texted me to tell me about the change of plan.’
Mel says she was ‘raw’ and ’emotional’ and felt like she was left out of the loop.
‘I was so upset that for a moment, I actually thought about not going.’
She did go, however, and says the meeting went well and the five girls – Mel, Geri, Vic, Emma and Mel C – spent more time taking photos than talking about a reunion.
But things went south a few months afterward, as Mel writes: ‘True to form, four months after that meeting at Geri’s, we all fell out again.We are not easy. We are five women with strong personalities and strong wills.
‘Vic said she didn’t want to go on tour and the rest of us were unhappy that Simon hadn’t pushed hard enough to make it happen.’
She added: ‘The Spice story – like mine – is not over yet.’

Another story Mel shared was about the Spice Girls’ penultimate date of their 2008 reunion tour in Toronto, Canada.
She recalls Geri finding her sobbing in a shower after she didn’t show for a meet and greet.

And Mel reveals the reason why that reunion tour was cut short by three months – her.
She wrote: ‘I couldn’t take it anymore.
‘After three months and 47 dates and hundreds of hours on our Spice Jet (we had one and there was a second Spice Jet that took catering, technicians and crew; a tour is like an army and you travel in planes and juggernauts around the world) the tension was getting too much.’
In the memoir Mel B also recalls the early days of the Spice Girls and ‘Girl Power’ – fondly remembering the close friendships and the laughs.
Ashe recalls a night when the band stayed in the same hotel as superstar Elton John and her and Geri Halliwell were drunkenly giggling outside his door before peeing in a pot plant outside his doorway.
‘We thought it was the most hilarious thing in the world,’ she wrote.
