Mel B has been a driving force in making the trip happen.
While presenting on Channel 4’s show Steph’s packed lunch in september she said: “I’m always pushing for a Spice Girls reunion and we were in negotiations last year but then hit Covid so it pushed everyone’s plans.
“I think we’re hopefully on the same page together. They’re going to kill me for saying this. We hope, especially me – if it has anything to do with me that it wants because I’m driving force and will make it happen – touring in 2023. “
In July, ‘Sporty Spice’ Geri Halliwell, who was 22 when the band formed and is now 48 years old, paid tribute to Instagram to commemorate the anniversary of the band’s first hit.
“25 years with ‘Wannabe’. Wow. The song that changed the lives of five girls from the UK,” Halliwell wrote along with a collection of photos of the girl group, one of which is an honest snap and another from a black-and-white shoot.
“The first picture was taken in my backyard on a Sunday – we all listened to the radio the day we went to number 3 on the charts !! The black and white picture was from our first photoshoot ever!”
Referring to the third photo she shared, depicting a gold ring engraved with ‘Spice Girls’, she added: “And the famous ring … I bought a gold ring for each of the girls when we first got together, as a symbol of our friendship. “
“It’s a special bond that continues to stand the test of time. I’m so proud of everything we’ve achieved together, girls. A BIG THANK YOU to our amazing fans from all over the world for your support and loyalty. Love, ginger.” she finished before noticing all four other bandmates.
