Victoria Beckham has spoken out about the chances of reuniting with the Spice Girls, declaring that she 'won't ever do it again'. 

The fashion designer and wife of David Beckham told Vanity Fair Italy that her days as 'Posh Spice' were well and truly over - with the group's appearance at London 2012 Olympic closing ceremony marking the end. 

"I won't ever do it again," she said. "Doing the Olympics was an incredible honour. I was so proud to do it; proud to be British.

Beckham added: "That was a perfect time to say, 'That's great. Thank you to everybody, but no more.' Sometimes you've got to know when it's time to leave the party."

Last year, the group reportedly axed plans to stage (another) comeback tour in 2014, due to fears they would fail to sell tickets. Geri Halliwell was said to have been pushing for another tour, despite Victoria Beckham previously confirming she would no longer perform as Posh Spice. After starting to plan the tour however, it has now been claimed that without Beckham on board, there were concerns that fans would not be interested.

"Led by Geri, the girls had been plotting a world tour as a four-piece band, culminating in a final night at Wembley Stadium," says a source to The Mirror newspaper. "The three other girls had been initially up for it but once they started having meetings they realised the capital wasn't there.

"They also feared a general apathy from the public if Posh wasn't in the fray, leading to dates not selling out. Victoria's obviously a big pull when it comes to the fans and she also guarantees press coverage."
