The couple put on a united front when allegations were made earlier in the year

Geri Halliwell is continuing to stand by Christian Horner after his accuser was 'grilled by investigators', according to reports.

Horner was cleared of inappropriate behaviour earlier this year, with the 50-year-old always denying allegations of misconduct from a female member of staff.

The Red Bull chief has overseen the first five races of the season in Bahrain, Saudi Arabia, Australia, Japan and China - with the Briton continuing to work as normal.

His accuser, who was suspended by the F1 side on full pay, is appealing Red Bull's decision to clear Horner.

The woman, who has been banned from discussing the situation publicly, continues to fight against her employers.

According to The Sun, Horner's accuser has been grilled by investigators as part of a new investigation.

And it's claimed that Geri is still standing by her husband, too.

The Spice Girls icon reportedly hit 'rock bottom' when the claims were first made, with publications also saying she had 'gone to ground'.

Yet Geri put on a united front with Horner during the first two races of the season, holding hands with her husband in paddocks in Bahrain and Saudi Arabia.

The 51-year-old hasn't been to a F1 race in the time since.

But that's due to Geri's busy schedule, rather than having anything to do with Horner and the investigation into her husband.

With the couple united, reports recently suggested the couple were preparing to do a Netflix-style documentary about their relationship.

Yet Horner, speaking after the Chinese Grand Prix on Sunday, insisted that wouldn't be happening.

“There is a lot being written about different things, but there are absolutely no plans to do a family documentary," he said.

“Netflix do enough, and you see enough of the behind-the-scenes on that.

"So where that report has come from, I have absolutely no idea.”

Horner also previously thanked Geri for her support last month while calling for 'intrusions' into their relationship to stop.

“My wife has been phenomenally supportive throughout this as have my family,” he said.

“It’s obviously been a very trying period. I’m married and have three children.

“When that intrusion includes your children and the scrutiny that is placed on my marriage, I’m very fortunate that I have a beautiful family and a very supportive wife.

"And I’m the only one that has been named in this.

“It’s very challenging, because when there’s children involved, when there’s families, parents involved, it’s not pretty.

"It is time now to focus on why we are here, which is to go Formula One racing.”

A friend of Horner's accuser, meanwhile, said she had been struggling since being suspended by Red Bull.

They told the BBC earlier this month: "It's impossible for people to understand what it's like for her.

"She can't talk and she won't talk. But I can tell you what it is doing to her.

"Every time I have asked her something, she breaks down in tears and says she's got no-one to talk to because she's not allowed to talk.

"She is very upset, very angry, very scared, very intimidated, very lonely.

"And I think it's impossible for people to understand without being in her shoes what it's like for her."
