Sporty Didn't Want Spice Reunion

by | 23 October 2007

Melanie Chisholm, aka Sporty Spice, has revealed that she was not initially overjoyed at the thought of a Spice Girls reunion.

The girl power band have reformed for a lucrative world tour, with tickets for one of their shows at London's O2 Arena selling out in an amazing 32 seconds.

But Mel C told Closer magazine the idea of a reunion was not exactly music to her ears at first.

"The girls approached me and said they were getting together to do a world tour, a greatest hits album and a big goodbye, and I was like: 'Oh no.' It was the last thing I wanted to hear," she admitted.

"All four of them had spoken about it and it was set in stone. They basically said if I wanted to do it, great, but if I didn't want to do it then they were going to do it anyway. So I was like: 'Wow, what do I do?'"

Chisholm is, at 33, the most successful British female artist ever having co-written eleven number one singles. And she added: "I always said I'd never do it. But I didn't want to miss out and have regrets.

"I also didn't want to be the person that stopped it being the complete five - I was scared I'd be the villain."

The Spice Girls are to release Headlines, their first single in seven years, in November.
