Emma Bunton has suggested the Spice Girls could be about to reunite.

The iconic girl group - which featured Mel B, Mel C, Victoria Beckham, Geri Halliwell and Emma - will celebrate 20 years since the release of their breakthrough hit 'Wannabe' in 2016, and Emma says scheduling is the only thing stopping them from reuniting to mark the occasion.

The 39-year-old singer - who was known as Baby Spice - said: ''I was with Geri and Mel B just recently, we love each other and we love performing together.

''It's just when the timing is right because we all have our own careers now and we have families, it's just about getting five schedules together and that's all it is.''

Emma also admitted she was aware of suggestions that never-heard-before Spice Girls material would soon be made officially available.

She told the Daily Star newspaper: ''I have heard about that, yes, but I can't really talk about those.''

She did, however, confess that the popular girl group had recorded ''lots'' material that the public has yet to hear.

The Spice Girls last performed together at the closing ceremony of the 2012 Olympic Games in London.
