The artist formerly known as Sporty Spice has admitted the girls’ upcoming reunion will make her miss the band, to the point where she will probably want to join them on stage.
Speaking to The Mirror, she said: “I think I’ll find it weird. People have talked to me about the gigs and they’re like, ‘Are you going to go?’ I’d find it really weird.
Mel also told The I she was surprised about the reaction to her not rejoining the group, given it’s “very accepted that Victoria [Beckham] doesn’t want to continue.”
“There’s a lot to be said for bowing out on a high note,” she wrote.
“For me the absolute pinnacle of my Spice existence was being watched by a billion people around the globe belting out ‘Spice Up Your Life’ on top of a black cab at the 2012 London Olympics.
“Anything less than the full line-up just didn’t feel like we’d be doing justice to the band or the fans.”
Victoria, meanwhile, has said she hopes Emma Bunton, Geri Horner and Mel B do not perform any of the Spice Girls’ hits when they hold their planned comeback.
Asked if she wished the trio well, Victoria told The Sunday Times Style magazine: “Of course, as a new group, I do.
“I do think they should sing their own material though, because what we did in the Spice Girls was so special. If they sang Spice Girls songs I think I might be a bit sad.”
Mel, Emma and Geri announced plans to celebrate their 20th anniversary back in July, with an *ahem* expense spared video.
It isn’t yet known exactly what their reunion will entail, - whether that includes live performances or new material - as at the moment all we have is a new website naming them as ‘Spice Girls GEM’.
