Spice Girls star Emma Bunton is keen for someone to take on Victoria Beckham’s role as Posh Spice for the band’s 2017 reunion.
A get together has been planned for many months and an initial run of shows to mark the 20th anniversary of the band’s first hit Wannabe was abandoned when the girls couldn’t book venues in time to do it this summer.Emma, aka Baby Spice, has since regrouped with Ginger Spice, Geri Horner, and Scary Spice, Melanie Brown, to record new music and schedule a bunch of shows for next year, but the 40-year-old singer believes any reunion without a Posh Spice will fall flat.
“There’s nothing set in stone,” she tells British TV show This Morning. “I personally think we should do something. It would be lovely (but) I think we need a Posh.” Victoria has turned down the chance to team up with the trio, now called GEM, as has the fifth member of the group, Melanie Chisholm, but Emma reveals she has spoken to Posh, who since leaving the band has embarked on a career as a top fashion designer.
The two bandmates met at David Beckham’s 41st birthday in May (16), and Emma has high hopes the soccer star’s wife will change her mind.
Melanie Chisholm has reminisced about the Spice Girls’ 2012 reunion at the London Olympics amid reports suggesting she is preparing to sue to block a partial comeback.
The British girl group delighted fans four years ago by taking centre stage to perform for the closing ceremony at the last Olympic Games, and on Friday (12Aug16), Chisholm, known as Sporty Spice, took to social media to celebrate the anniversary.
Alongside a photo collage of the occasion, Mel C wrote, “The most glorious day! #London2012 #spiceupyourlife 4 years ago! Wow!”
Her Instagram post emerged as a source told The Sun newspaper the 42-year-old singer was consulting with lawyers in a bid to prevent her former bandmates Emma Bunton, Geri Horner, and Melanie Brown reuniting for a partial Spice Girls comeback, after she and Victoria Beckham both turned down offers to join a reunion tour.
Spice Girls bandmates Mel B, Geri Horner and Emma Bunton will pick up $14 million (£10 million) each for a two-hour long performance, according to new reports. The girl group celebrated the 20th anniversary of its first single Wannabe earlier this summer (2016), and Scary Spice, Ginger Spice, and Baby Spice have teamed up to stage a show to mark the occasion in London’s Hyde Park next summer (2017). Renamed GEM, they will perform without bandmates Victoria Beckham (Posh Spice) and Melanie Chisholm (Sporty Spice), who have refused to be part of the get together, but the fact that all five original members won’t be part of the show hasn’t stopped promoters and big sponsors throwing money at the three remaining Spice Girls.
It’s the news that Spice Girls fans everywhere “really, really wanna” hear. The British girl band is rumoured to be planning a reunion gig at London’s Hyde Park in July 2017 to mark the 21st anniversary of their hit song Wannabe.
