After weeks of are-they-aren't-they speculation regarding a 2016 reunion for the Spice Girls, it seems the band are indeed in talks to reform… but not as a complete set.
Victoria Beckham has reportedly already bowed out of any reunion plans, telling former bandmate Geri Halliwell that she won't be taking part. The pair apparently met for a "secret" catch-up lunch last week, and VB broke the news to her old friend on the day.
"Victoria met Geri recently to have an afternoon together reminiscing about old times," a source told The Sun.
"Geri filled Victoria in on the plans for the reunion next year and while Victoria made it clear she couldn't make it, she said she was more than happy for the other girls to go ahead. It's wrong to suggest she would try to stop them doing it if the other girls wanted to."
News of a possible reunion tour for the girl group emerged last week, after Geri confirmed on ITV's This Morning that the gang were in "talks" about honouring the 20th anniversary of Wannabe with a gig.
Having just unveiled yet another stunning collection from her clothing line at New York Fashion Week, Victoria's focus is definitely elsewhere, but she says she'll offer Ginger Spice and co. her full support.
"Victoria told Geri she would be at one of the shows, or maybe more, cheering from the front row," the insider said.
The Spice Girls last reunited in 2012 at the opening of the London Olympics, a reunion which even included Posh Spice.
Surely someone can convince VB to join them for one last hurrah?
