FURIOUS Mel B told Victoria Beckham: “F*** off, you bitch!” during a heated bust-up over the Spice Girls reunion.
News of the row emerged as the remaining quartet — Mel, Emma Bunton, Geri Horner and Melanie Chisholm — flew in to London to make promotional material announcing a blockbuster UK tour.

They spent 14 hours at Hackney’s Alva studios on Friday, filming clips for social media, plus photoshoots and song clips.
After months of wrangling the tour will kick off in the UK next May, with extra dates in Europe.
But Posh Spice, 44, will not be in the line-up following fiery exchanges with Mel, 43.
An insider said: “The girls are furious with Victoria for initially agreeing to reunite, then pulling out. At one stage she even threatened to go legal if the girls cashed in on the brand minus her.

“They then took offence to her recreating her Spice Girls looks in a recent Vogue shoot, and basically said she was being a hypocrite.
“By the end of the exchange, Melanie told Victoria: “F*** off, you b****!’. And that was pretty much the end of the conversation.”
As a five-piece the girls could have earned £30million each. Instead they will still pocket £8million apiece.

The tour is set to feature dazzling costumes, dancers and pyrotechnics.
Former manager Simon Fuller, initially behind the plans, is no longer calling the shots.
Instead the tour will be run by Modest, whose roster includes Little Mix and Katherine Jenkins.

In a further bid to oust mum-of-four Posh, the band have dissolved their official company Octopus Direct Ltd.
The firm looked after record sales, merchandise and films and boasted a £30million turnover in their 1990s heyday.
Its closure means they can open a new firm as a foursome.
