THE Spice Girls are about to give fans what they really, really want: a reunion.
According to The Sun newspaper, the 1990s girl group is about to announce a new tour but without original member Victoria “Posh Spice” Beckham.
The British newspaper says the band has recorded a message that will be broadcast tomorrow announcing a 2019 UK stadium tour.
Apart from Beckham, now a successful fashion designer, the line-up includes Melanie “Sporty Spice” Chisholm, Emma “Baby Spice” Bunton, Melanie “Scary Spice” Brown and Geri “Ginger Spice” Horner.
Speculation of a reunion reached fever pitch in February when all five girls met up and teased that they were looking at new opportunities.
Ross is a longtime friend of the group, having cameo’d in their sadly not Oscar-nominated 1997 film Spice World.
“This week on The Jonathan Ross Show, in a TV exclusive, Emma Bunton, Mel B, Mel C and Geri Horner will be chatting together on the sofa. Plus, the hilarious John Bishop, and international pop icon Kylie Minogue, who’ll also be performing a duet with Jack Savoretti,” the blurb for the episode trumpets.
The band was a 1990s phenomenon with hits including Wannabe and Viva Forever.
They performed as a four-piece for two years after Horner quit the band in 1998, split in 2000 and last reunited at the 2012 London Olympics.
