Mel B Admits Spice Girls Reunion Might Have To Wait Until NEXT Year

Just when we were ready to spice up our lives...

Mel B has some rather disappointing news for Spice Girls fans, admitting they may have to wait until next year for the pop group’s much-awaited 20th anniversary reunion.

Over the past 12 months, various reports have suggested that the band are set to reform in some capacity, to commemorate 20 years since the release of their debut single ‘Wannabe’.

However, as the anniversary is now just a week away, Mel has now told US daytime presenter Kelly Ripa that fans could be in for a longer wait than we thought.

The artist formerly known as Scary Spice explained: “This is the thing. It’s our 20th anniversary this year so this would be the perfect year, but places get booked out.

“What we’ll hopefully do is plan to do something to celebrate next year. But it’s something that we want to do and it will be nice to celebrate and give something back to the fans.”

While other members of the group have remained cryptic about any anniversary plans, Mel has been the most vocal of the former Spice Girls when discussing a potential reunion.

After Emma Bunton and Geri Horner (or Halliwell as she was known back in the day) were photographed heading into the same recording studio last month, Mel told Rylan Clark: I’d just flown in [to London] for the LGBT awards and I thought I’d just see if my girls were available to hang out and be a bit creative…

And I say oohhhh LALA

More recent reports have suggested that both Melanie C and Victoria Beckham have declined to take part in the reunion, which has been rumoured to include everything from new material to a one-off documentary to a full UK arena tour.
