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 21<sup>st anniversary of their hit song Wannabe.
Fans of the girl group, who rose to fame in the 90s and championed Girl Power, have been holding out hope for news of a reunion tour. However, there have been conflicting reports suggesting not all of the bandmates are ready to revisit their musical roots.
According to The Mirror a source said: "Mel C has been telling friends it's not happening – not for the anniversary and not next year. She's not interested in revisiting the band, and neither is Victoria. Their decision has made it impossible for the other three to go ahead with plans to tour again."
After Mel B seemed to hint at a Spice Girls reunion tour, Victoria Beckham quickly put the carwash on the reports, issuing a statement saying she has no plans to appear with them 'now or in the future'.
"[Victoria] has been very respectful about the fabulous time they had together in the past, however her focus is now very much her family and fashion business," her spokesperson said.
The mother-of-four gave up pop music for fashion and while it was originally thought she has no plans to pick up the mike again, its thought she might reconsider for a one-off event. According to The Sun, the group met at Geri Horner's home last week where they came up with a plan to mark the milestone of their debut song that set them on the road to stardom.
A source also told The Sun: "It gives them a year to plan everything and make sure their comeback is spectacular. It would be the most-talked about gig of the year."
Mel B also told the paper: "I am keeping tight-lipped. There are lots of discussions going on. Right now I am in the studio working on my own album and that is my focus. I'm taking it slowly."
The Spice Girls formed in 1994 and released their debut single Wannabe in 1996. The track became a worldwide hit and marked the beginning of the band who went onto became one of the world's most popular British pop groups since the Beatles and one of the best-selling female group of all time
The group sold more than 80 million records in the heyday of Girl power. Geri famously quit the band and the remaining members continued as a foursome. They split in 2000 as each member pursued their solo ambitions. The 2 Become 1 hitmakers got back together for a reunion tour in 2007.
All the original bandmates, including Victoria, performed together at the closing ceremony of the London 2012 Olympics making an entry on the roof of a studded black cab.
