The Spice Girls never actually asked Victoria Beckham to do the reunion tour

On Wednesday night, the recently-reformed Spice Girls taped an episode of The Jonathan Ross Show, promoting their comeback.

And naturally, the subject of Victoria Beckhams decision to sit out the reunion was broached by the chat show host, causing a ripple of disagreement between band members Geri Horner, Emma Bunton, Mel C and Mel B.

Time has been kinder to the Spice Girls than detractors at the height of their 90s fame might have expected, not least because a new generation of female artists and writers has emerged, lauding their galvanising influence or happy to attest that the first time they heard the word feminism was in conjunction with the slogan girl power. Nevertheless, a charge still levelled against them is that music almost seemed a secondary consideration, a means by which their personalities and image could be marketed. But at the core of their appeal lies a string of punchily, undeniable pop songs of which Who Do You Think You Are is the best: a beautifully done, melodically rich, brass-driven disco pastiche.

Addressing the matter first, Mel C said: Do you know what is actually quite funny… I saw Victoria recently and obviously weve all been in contact, she is still very much a part of the Spice Girls, she really supports us and we really support her. 

Earlier this week, all us 80s and 90s babies’ dreams came true when the Spice Girls announced that they were doing a reunion tour next year. YEAH BOI!

Shout out to the guy who proposed to his girlfriend mid-way through her marathon. People might suggest that inserting himself into her 26-mile narrative detracts from her achievement but I beg to differ, hes merely tightening his romantic chokehold of love. If he was truly committed hed Photoshop his own face on pictures of her crossing the finish line.

Then just a couple of hours later, the Spice Girls dropped a video of Mel B, Mel C, Geri Halliwell/Horner and Emma Bunton giving a Spice News bulletin revealing the details!

Every time your partner shows independence, shoehorn yourself into the picture. Shout over their anecdotes with stories of your childhood or just bark like a dog until they quieten down. Follow them to work and answer any questions directed specifically to them in meetings also sing I Just Called To Say I Love You loudly from behind a pot plant.

Everyone was pretty bummed to see that Victoria Beckham wouldn’t be part of the reunion, but now the ladies revealed that they never actually asked Posh if she wanted to be involved.

The interview, taped on Wednesday and set to air on Saturday, sees the girls criticising Geri Horner, 46, for singing too loudly on their tracks and she looks visibly miffed.

“She is still very much a part of the Spice Girls, she really supports us and we really support her.

ITV Geri added: “I spoke to her two days ago, before the announcement and she has said it for years that she just doesnt want to do it anymore, so we knew that.”

Emma was quick to clarify that that they did actually approach Victoria, but Geri explained “she was busy with her fashion and shes moved on.”

The nineties pop group will return in 2019 – minus Victoria Beckham – with a run of shows, including one at Murrayfield Stadium in Edinburgh on Saturday, June 8.

And when Jonathan Ross asked if it was true that Victoria never enjoyed performing on stage, Geri said: “No, and you dont want to make somebody do something they dont want to do.”

Speaking promptly before more rumours broke out, Geri expressed her thoughts: “I think it has got to be an organic process, if something happened and we felt like it.
