So the dream of a Spice Girls reunion still isn’t over according to Geri Halliwell. She revealed to me this week that the band are still mulling it over – but it has to be all five of them and there’s a lot of factors to take into account for it to work.
Promoting her new Union Jack inspired collection with Next Geri told me: “We did get the offer and it is exciting. Obviously we are a band and it’s a collective decision that has to be made as a band. We need to all be in the same place with it and we have to take into account all of our lives. We wouldn’t do it without all five of us. I do feel it’s an incredible honour and privilege. I can’t think of anything else I’d love to do – perform at Buckingham Palace for the Queen. It doesn’t get bigger than that.”
Ginger also tells me if the Girls do not reform for the Jubilee, the line-up of which is being announced on Tuesday by Gary Barlow, then we will definitely have them all back together for the Viva Forever Spice Musical at the end of the year. “There’s always one more performance,” she said. “Was there ever an end? For me I’ve always embraced the Spice Girl in me. I’ve never wanted to shift the Spice Girl in me. Musically I’ve never tried to be anything else but that. I will always be a Spice Girl. If we don’t do the Jubilee then we will be together for the musical.”
But can Victoria Beckham be persuaded to join the rest of the girls? That’s the question….
