Emma Bunton has spoken out on her desire for Victoria Beckham to join in with the forthcoming Spice Girls reunion - though she’s admitted it’s highly unlikely.
This year marks the 20th anniversary of the hugely successful 90s pop group’s debut single, ‘Wannabe’, and rumours have swirled for many months now over how they plan to celebrate. Victoria Beckham politely ruled herself out of proceedings fairly early on. It didn’t stop fans hoping though.
Last month, Emma Bunton, Geri Horner (formerly Halliwell) and Mel B appeared together in a video teasing a reunion under the name GEM.
“We’ve been thinking,” they say in the video. “We have the best fans in the whole entire world. You’ve stood by us for 20 years, and we want to say a big thank you. We’ve had our ups and downs but you’ve always been there and we want to celebrate and have a party, and when we do you’re all invited.”
Then the following message appears on the screen: “Happy 20th birthday to all our fans. This is a celebration for you! We hope to tell you soon what you want, what you really really want.”
Now, in an interview with This Morning, Emma Bunton has elaborated on Posh Spice’s willingness to be involved. “For a long time she has wished us the best,” said the former Baby Spice. “I was talking to her at David's birthday party and he said,’You've got to do something’. Maybe she will change her mind, she does that, who knows.”
As for how likely it is that there’ll be a reunion at all, Bunton added, “'There is nothing set in stone I personally think we should do something. I think we need a Posh.”
Meanwhile, a source recently told The Sun that Mel C, who also didn’t appear in last month’s teaser video, is consulting lawyers in a bid to block any reunion happening without her.
