Mel B confirms Spice Girls 20th anniversary reunion

They last performed as a five-piece during their 2007/2008 reunion tour.
And Mel B has now confirmed she is masterminding the Spice Girls' comeback for 2016, hinting the group are set to mark their 20th anniversary in style.

Dailymail reports that the 40-year-old singer-turned-presenter was quizzed about the possibility of a reunion on Alan Carr's New Year's Specstacular, and the crowd cheered with delight at Mel's positive reaction to the rumours.

To be serious, it is out twentieth anniversary this year and it would be rude not to celebrate so hopefully something will be happening pretty soon.'

Mel, formerly known as Scary Spice, refused to give away any details, however. When pressed further by Alan, she retorted, 'I can’t tell you what it is yet!'

The 2 Become 1 singer's candid confession comes after it was claimed that Mel C was refusing to go ahead with the reunion without Victoria, who is too busy with her fashion empire to make it work.

A source told The Sun last week: 'To fulfill this Mel believes the band has to be the original five-piece and Victoria needs to be involved.'

The Spice Girls originally agreed on an 'indefinite hiatus' in 1998 when Ginger Spice Geri decided to leave the group.

They put their differences aside in the next decade and reunited in their original formation with a tour called The Return Of The Spice Girls, which also included a performance at the London 2012 Olympics, and grossed over £47M and produced £71M in ticket sales and merchandising.

This time around, Victoria - who lays claim to an international fashion empire under her own name - is said to have ducked out because she is 'too busy.'

A source told MailOnline in August: 'Victoria loved her time as a Spice Girl and wishes the girls nothing but success & happiness however she is now too busy running her brand and fulfilling the needs of her family.'
