With respect, this is not a question about UK but Spain.
Under the regulations it has always been allowed for all applicants, including non EU nationals, so Chinese, American, Russian etc to do so.
If when UK nationals are no longer EU nationals, they are treated as Non EU nationals are treated now, then that will not be a problem.
