Emma Bunton is reassuring Spice Girls fans that Melanie “Mel B” Brown and Geri Halliwell Horner are on amicable terms ahead of the group’s upcoming tour.

Weeks after Brown claimed she and Halliwell Horner slept together back in the day (Ginger Spice later denied), Baby Spice reportedly revealed her reaction to learning about the bombshell.

“I must admit, I was like, ‘What about me?’ I felt a bit left out,” Bunton jokingly said during her appearance on the U.K.’s Jonathan Ross Show, according to reports.

In March, Halliwell Horner, who famously split from the Spice Girls in 1998, denied allegations that she had sex with her bandmate in the mid-’90s after Brown said they did in an interview, revealing that it “wasn’t a big deal” and “just a one-night thing.”

A rep for Halliwell Horner told PEOPLE that the claim is “simply not true and has been very hurtful to her family.”

During her recent talk show appearance, Bunton confirmed Brown and Halliwell Horner have seemingly moved on from the drama and are focusing on tour preparations.

“Of course, we are starting rehearsals on Monday. It’s all fine,” Bunton said.

“We have all chatted about it. Listen, we had fun back in the day. I didn’t know anything else but you know, we are all good,” she continued, adding, “We all know each other’s characters so well that we deal with each other in different ways, we have different friendships, so we work really well together.”

The British pop legends announced in November 2018 that they will embark on a stadium tour in 2019. One member who will not be taking part is Victoria Beckham, a.k.a. Posh Spice, due to other business commitments, including her fashion line.

The six-date trek, which is currently slated only for the United Kingdom, will mark the first time the group has reunited since their high-profile turn during the closing of the Olympic Games in London back in 2012.

Halliwell Horner’s rep previously told PEOPLE that the star was looking forward to the reunion.

“Geri can’t wait to see the girls and all the fans on the tour, have an amazing time with everyone, and make some new memories,” her rep said in the statement.

The Spice Girls kick off their tour in Dublin, Ireland, on May 24.

Pop singer Jess Glynne has been tapped to serve as the Spice Girls’ opening act on the upcoming tour.
