Victoria Beckham officially won throwback Thursday when she posted an old Spice Girls photo album on her Instagram account last night. And the world obviously went totally crazy afterwards.
Then began the rumours: the girls were reuniting to mark the 20th anniversary of their global hit debut single, Wannabe.
Unsurprisingly given her mega-profile and her successful career as a fashion designer, Victoria Beckham was said not be joining the girl gang on stage for their tour – but the others were seemingly very much on board.
Still, late this afternoon Emma Bunton delivered the devastating news that "nothing's happening at the moment". Nooooo!
The Sun had reported today that the reunion tour was definitely in the offing.
"If anything happens and it's concrete, and we decide on something, I will let you know," Baby Spice said on Heart FM this morning.
Woke up this morning wondering whether I need to start practising my backflips???!!!

Mel C later tweeted: "Woke up this morning wondering whether I need to start practising my backflips???!!!" A jibe to which Ms Bunton then replied: "Do I need to put my pigtails in?!?!?"
Victoria Beckham has previously said the London Olympics back in 2012 was definitely her final appearance with the others in any sort of musical capacity.
Although in the past year, the band haven't been shy about meeting up in public and they're quite open about how they are all still really close friends and all stay in touch regularly.
And we're quietly hopeful that the worldwide reaction today may have given the girls some serious food for thought. Indeed, The Sun reporter who broke the story, Dan Wooton, was eager to stress that no actual denial had been issued.
And a note from me to people saying Emma "denied" story this AM. She didn't. But no official announcement will come until later this year.

He's sticking to his guns, in fact, suggesting via Twitter that an official announcement will still come later this year – a message which Emma then shared with her 1.2million followers.
Sounds promising, we say!!
