Will Victoria Beckham rejoin the Spice Girls on tour?

As announced earlier today, the Spice Girls are indeed reuniting and going on tour.

Victoria Beckham was absent from the clip.

The Spice Girls made their tour announcement in a video posted to Twitter.

Manchester, Coventry, Sunderland, Edinburgh, Bristol and London are the six cities that will host the comeback tour.

Each band member is said to have received £10m to promote a new greatest hits album, along with other still-to-be-announced endorsements. Our tickets go on sale on Friday, November 10.

It was also revealed on Monday that singer Jess Glynne will be opening for the band.

And Mel has now admitted she was the one who pulled the plug on the tour because of difficulties in her marriage to now ex-husband Stephen Belafonte.


Rumours of a Spice Girls reunion have rumbled in recent days, ahead of a scheduled appearance on The Jonathan Ross Show this Saturday. Explaining the reason why her old bandmate won't be making up the five, Mel explained: "It's just the four of us that are fully committed but Vic might join us at some point".

The group split in 1998 after becoming one of the UK's biggest girl groups ever.

'I hope so, it'll be a shame if she didn't [come to the shows],' she continued. The group reformed for a tour in 2007-2008 and had hinted at a further reunion in 2018.

Emma said: "It's time to spice things up all over again!"

The last time all five members reunited for a one-off performance was at the closing ceremony of the 2012 Olympic Games.

And the four will send social media into a meltdown with a mock news bulletin in which they poke fun at their personalities. On Halloween, Mel B dressed up as Posh and held a sign that read, "No I am not going on tour".

There's been excitement before that the Spice Girls would be reuniting.
