Martin Campaigns For Spice Girls' Live 8 Reunion

LATEST: COLDPLAY frontman CHRIS MARTIN is urging LIVE 8 organisers to allow THE SPICE GIRLS to perform at the star-studded charity concert.

The YELLOW singer is disgusted by reports the WANNABE stars - GERI HALLIWELL, VICTORIA BECKHAM, MELANIE CHISHOLM, MELANIE BROWN and EMMA BUNTON - were axed from the event, over fears they would undermine the show's serious political message about world poverty.

And he is lobbying for Live 8 bosses to allow the band to reform and perform together for the first time since 1998, when Halliwell quit the group.

He says, "I hope the Spice Girls are doing Live 8, because they were a phenomenon.

"They should get back together and do it."
