The Spice Girls are back! After Mel B, Mel C, Emma Bunton, Victoria Beckham, & Geri Halliwell hung out together, they confirmed a reunion is coming!
Will 2018 be the year the Spice Girls finally reunite?! Mel B, 42, Melanie C, 44, Emma Bunton, 42, and Victoria Beckham, 43, were all photographed arriving at Geri Halliwell‘s London home on Feb. 2! The group was then joined by manager Simon Fuller, 57, and security staff were seen delivering lunch to the house so you KNOW it’s serious. The meet-up came one day after The Sun reported that Scary Spice was flying from LA for a secret meeting with the entire group. Victoria even made the meeting Instagram official when she posted a pic of the entire gang with the caption, “Love my girls!!! So many kisses!!! X Exciting x.” Emma posted the same pic with a caption that said, “the future is looking spicy!” Eek! It’s happening, you guys! Click through the gallery above to see all the pics from their reunion!
The group also issued a statement through their publicist Jo Milloy after their meeting. “We have enjoyed a wonderful afternoon catching-up and reminiscing about the amazing times we have spent together. We are always overwhelmed at how much interest there is across the whole world for The Spice Girls. The time now feels right to explore some incredible opportunities together. We all agree that there are many exciting possibilities that will once again embrace the original essence of The Spice Girls, while reinforcing our message of female empowerment for future generations,” the statement said.
The girl group haven’t been spotted all together since they attended the musical “Viva Forever!” in Dec. 2012. Earlier that year, they epically came together to perform at the closing ceremony of the Olympics in London. But fans haven’t been expecting a true reunion since Posh has been delaying any hopes of bringing the band back together. But it looks like she signed off on it this time around — after being reassured that she wouldn’t need to sing. “But after a long period of negotiation Victoria agreed the time is right to work on new projects this year,” a source close to the band told The Sun. “It’s very exciting because she has always been adamant she wouldn’t go back.”
The band are reportedly considering TV projects in China, a television talent show, endorsement deals, and a greatest hits compilation. “Victoria and Geri agreed it would be impossible to be part of a fully-fledged tour because of family and business commitments,” the source added. “Now that she’s a top designer Victoria is concerned about singing but she wants to make money to pump back into her business.” At this point, we’ll take anything we can get as long as all of the Spice Girls will be involved! Now if you’ll excuse us, we’re going to go listen to “Wannabe” on repeat.
UPDATE: Feb. 10 — Victoria announced in an interview on Feb. 10 that she has no intention of hitting the road again with her girl group. “I’m not going on tour. The girls aren’t going on tour,” she told Vogue. But she added this thought about the group’s members getting together: “It was so great to see the girls. We had such a fun lunch. It was really, really, really lovely. I still speak to them all individually, but for us all to get together was really lovely.”
