They’re Back! The Spice Girls reunion is on

Spice Girls have reunited but are not expected to record an album

Spice Girls are reuniting – albeit not for a tour or a new album. The five members of the British girlband have accepted £10m each in a deal that might include television in China, a new talent show, a second greatest hits compilation and a variety of endorsement deals, according to the Sun.

The five-piece met today at Geri Horner’s (nee Halliwell) Hertfordshire home, along with manager Simon Fuller, who is reportedly driving the reunion.

Victoria Beckham is said to have assented on the condition that she doesn’t have to sing. She posted a photograph of the group on her Instagram account.

Still the biggest-selling girl group of all time, the Spice Girls reunited for a world tour in 2007. They last performed together at the closing ceremony for the 2012 London Olympics.

Horner has been vocal about her desire for another reunion, though a mooted 2016 reformation was quashed when Beckham and Melanie Chisholm declined to participate.

Last year, Beckham responded to rumours of a 2018 reunion on ITV’s This Morning. “It is not happening,” she said.

“At some point you’ve gotta know when it’s time to say, ‘That was great.’ Girl power will always be out there and is something that we all still believe.”

This May will mark 20 years since Horner left the Spice Girls, drawing their two-year period of global domination to a close.

Love my girls!!! So many kisses!!! X Exciting x #friendshipneverends #girlpower

Since splitting in December 2000, following the release of third album Forever, each member has attempted a solo career.

Brown has acted as a judge on a number of talent shows. Beckham is now a noted fashion designer.

Emma Bunton is a radio presenter on Heart London, and Horner has written books and judged on talent shows including the BBC’s All Together Now.

Prior their reunion, The Sun alleged that the five-piece were considering a greatest hits compilation, television in China, their own TV talent show, and nebulous “endorsement deals”.

The news met with a muted reaction, partially because the band had previously reunited for a 2007 world tour, which was accompanied by a greatest hits release – surely enough to cover the best of their three-album catalogue.

Beckham in particular has repeatedly stated her opposition to a reunion, making her alleged participation somewhat doubtful: in 2017, she told ITV’s This Morning, “at some point you’ve got to know when it’s time to say, ‘That was great.’ Girl power will always be out there and is something that we all still believe.”
