In 2004, she released single 'Ride It', which reached number four in the UK. She arranged a UK tour that never came to fruition due to poor ticket sales. In 2005, she released her third album 'Passion'. In 2007, she announced that she would take part in a Spice Girls reunion tour entitled Return of the Spice Girls. In 2012, she reunited with the band yet again for the 2012 London Olympics Closing Ceremony.

She's promoting her first solo album in ten years, but the hosts wanted to know more about the rumoured reunion.
The much-rumoured Spice Girls 20th anniversary reunion might be back on the cards as Geri Halliwell confirmed that the girl group has been in “talks” about getting back together for a brief celebratory tour.
Halliwell, 43, appeared on ITV’s ‘This Morning’ on Tuesday (September 8th) when she was asked whether the group had any plans to mark two decades since their first single and album next year. She responded cautiously, admitting that her band-mates Emma Bunton, Mel B and Mel C had been in preliminary discussions about reuniting (Victoria Beckham is already believed to have turned down the possibility).
However, she didn’t want to get fans’ hopes up unnecessarily as nothing had been set in stone yet. “I think it's really faltering that people are still supportive of the Spice Girls individually and collectively, that's beautiful, it's really nice. It almost feels you know that it [the Spice Girls] belongs to everyone, like a generation.”

The Sun had broken a story on Friday morning of an imminent Spice Girls reformation for their 20th anniversary next year.
Bunton, a.k.a. Baby Spice, was responding to an article on Friday (August 7th) in The Sun which claimed that the most successful girl group in pop history would be reuniting for its 20th anniversary with an international tour next year, but without Victoria Beckham.
Just a few hours later, she seemed to put a dampener on those rumours on her Heart London breakfast radio show. “If anything happens and it’s concrete, and we decide on something, I will let you know, but nothing’s happening at the moment,” she said.

Three members of the famous girl group had a very belated reunion on Thursday.

Would Eva Longoria make the perfect fifth Spice Girl?
The Spice Girls are back together! Ok, that was misleading. By “are” I mean “were” and by “together” I mean “in the same room, taking pictures for a couple of hours”. Also, there were only four of them. But other than that...
Posh, Sporty, Baby and Ginger reunited at David Beckham’s glamorous birthday party on Saturday, in Marrakech, Morocco. It was the presence of Geri Halliwell, Melanie Chisholm and Emma Bunton that really spiced up the party, though.
