Stop right now! The world’s most iconic girl group, the Spice Girls, is rumored to be reuniting for a TV special, and a brand new album.
The most exciting part? This time around all five members are set to come together, including Victoria Beckham.
The girl group first came together in 1994, and broke up seven years later in 2000. During their run, the Spice Girls recorded three studio albums, selling millions of copies, and winning countless awards. The pop stars reunited for a tour in 2007- 2008, and had their last performance together at the closing ceremony of the 2012 London Olympic Games.
The Sun reports Mel C (Sporty Spice) orchestrated the pop divas’ reunion by working with the band’s former boss Simon Fuller over the past few months. This announcement comes on the heels of a previous report of the starlet refusing to rejoin the band earlier this year.
“The five of them have been locked in secret talks since the summer, and finally they are all on-board for a 2018 reunion,” an unnamed source told the newspaper.
“As it stands, they will be working together on a series of projects, which will include an album and a TV special celebrating the Spice Girls – and getting Victoria to agree has been a coup for everyone involved, given she has always been the person holding back on a reunion.”
In honor of the girl group’s 20th anniversary, Geri Horner (Ginger Spice), Emma Bunton (Baby Spice), and Melanie B (Scary Spice) said they had planned to reunite under the new the name, GEM.
Despite her excitement for the project, Horner expressed disappointment not all of her band members would be returning.
“I really pushed to get everyone back together. It got to the point where I just had to let it go. I still love the girls, and there are other bits and bobs in the pipeline,” Horner told Red Magazine.
While they were slated to have their first appearance at Hyde Park in London, in January 2017 Horner was forced to pull out due to her second pregnancy.
