Theyve been teasing us with the idea of another reunion for years, and now Mel B has confessed that if it was up to her Spice Girls would get straight out on the road.
After months of speculation that 2018 could be the year the five girls – Melanie Chisholm, Emma Bunton, Geri Horner and Victoria Beckham – get back together, Mel B, 42, set the record straight on Loose Women.
“We are in the works of figuring the stuff out… I dont want to say too much,” she admitted. “All five of us have signed with Simon Fuller. I cant say exactly what and when but its all very exciting.”
Asked if the girls would be performing the old classics – including Mama and 2 become 1 or if theyll be making new music, Mel said: “Its going to be a bit of everything. If it was up to me wed go on tour immediately. Maybe we will soon… hopefully.”
And, it seems Mel – who split from her husband Stephen Belafonte last year – has been the driving force behind the reunion.
“Ive always said were definitely touring,” she explained. “I think Ive just been nagging them all a bit too much. I stopped nagging and then they all said yes. I shut my mouth.”
Despite appearing like the best of friends – all bonded over their mutual love of the much-loved term girl power – there were rumours of a rift between the girls.
So is it true?
“Catty? No, no. We actually all do really get on,” Mel B confessed. “When youve gone through something so huge together – we got famous basically overnight and we only had each other – so weve got a bond that nobody can break.

“We went around to Geris house, had a cup of tea, she put on a fancy posh spread and we just had a good old natter. Im seeing Geri and Emma tomorrow.”
“It is [like a family]. We didnt really fall out, fall out. Were just like five sisters. We bicker a little bit but weve always got each others back.”
This is music to our ears!
