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.

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!
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!
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.

“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.
