A planned reality talent show to find replacements for Victoria and Mel C ahead of a Spice Girls reunion tour have been blocked.
The Spice Girls’ civil war surrounding the group’s prospective reunion has taken another turn, with Mel C and Victoria Beckham apparently blocking plans by the remaining three members to hold a televised talent contest to recruit two replacements for possible reunion shows.
Plans for a reunion of the iconic ‘90s group have been in the offing for over a year, to mark the 21st anniversary of the release of their debut single ‘Wannabe’ in 1996. However, only Mel B, Geri Horner and Emma Bunton have been on board with it, with Beckham wanting to focus on her fashion career and Mel C also opposed to another reunion.

The three Spice Girls who are up for the reunion, calling themselves GEM, were due to perform with 5 After Midnight on 'The X Factor' final.
Ginger Spice Geri Horner, Baby Spice Emma Bunton and Scary Spice Mel B were due to make their much-publicised comeback on Saturday (December 10th) on the finale of the ITV singing competition, duetting in a performance with Louis Walsh’s boyband 5 After Midnight, who had previously sung the Spice Girls’ ‘Say You’ll Be There’ on the series.

Many viewers were left wondering whether Geri had always spoken in the Queen's English as she triumphed in the charity TV show.
Geri Halliwell emerged victorious in the ‘Sport Relief Bake Off’ final last night – but many viewers were more interested in the former Spice Girl’s accent, mocking her for her “cut-glass” pronunciation.
The 43 year old pop star, whose given surname is now Horner after marrying Formula One boss Christian Horner, impressed Paul Hollywood and Mary Berry with her Mediterranean tart and chocolate tray bake and was duly named the winner of the charity spin-off baking contest, but Twitter users found her use of a “fake posh voice” to be rather distracting.
Horner grew up on a council estate in North Watford, and during her Spice Girls years she was famous for her brash, ‘ladette’ image. However, throughout Wednesday night’s final, many felt she was putting on airs and graces.
The star-studded version of 'Gogglebox' is part of a special night of shows on Channel 4 designed to raise money for charity.
As part of a night of one-off programming tonight (Friday October 9th) in order to raise money and awareness for the charitable organisation Stand Up To Cancer, a star-studded line-up will be sitting in front of their televisions for a night in and commenting on the week’s shows.
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.

Can you believe it’s been 20 years since the Spice Girls released ‘Wannabe’?
It’s been nearly 20 years since the Spice Girls burst onto the pop music scene and changed the game forever with their debut single ‘Wannabe’. Now with their special anniversary approaching former band member and ‘America’s Got Talent Judge’ Mel B (aka Scary Spice) has been talking about the possibility of reunion to celebrate the group’s landmark anniversary.
Mel B has been speaking about a possible Spice Girls reunion.
"When you say it's our 20th anniversary, it makes you think oh gosh it really has been that long,” she said during an appearance on the 'Today Show', Thursday to promote her role as a a judge on America's Got Talent.
It was Geri’s big day on Friday, but where were her former bandmates?
Former Spice Girl Geri Halliwell finally said ‘I Do’ yesterday, in a lavish ceremony at the historic Woburn Abbey in Bedfordshire. The pop star married Formula One team boss Christian Horner in front of a host of famous faces and at the recepition she even indulged in a solo rendition of Spice Girls hit ‘Wannabe’. But why was Emma Bunton the only ex-Spice Girl in attendance?

Sporty Spice Mel C failed to make Geri’s big day thanks to her job on the other side of the world. The singer was unable to make it back it back in time for the ceremony after appearing as a judge on 'Asia's Got Talent' which aired it’s finale espied on May 14th.
Four songs recorded in 2000 emerged on SoundCloud on Wednesday, before being removed less than 24 hours later.
The internet briefly went into meltdown on Wednesday as four previously unreleased Spice Girls songs appeared online, only to be taken down early on Thursday morning.
The songs are believed to have been recorded at the same time as their third and final studio album Forever, which was released in 2000. Their titles are ‘A Day In Your Life’, ‘Pain Proof’, ‘If It’s Lovin’ Your On Mind’ and ‘Right Back At Ya’. The last of these is an alternative version of the one that actually appeared on Forever.

Poppy Delevingne and new husband James Cook have tattooed the date of their star-studded wedding on to their arms. There will be no forgetting their anniversary now!
She’s a Chanel brand ambassador, an ex-roommate to Sienna Miller, a successful model in her own right and older sister to Cara Delevingne, who is currently the most coveted supermodel in the world. But that doesn’t mean that Poppy Delevingne’s wedding had to be the best wedding, ever. Oh, OK, it sort of does.

Poppy married long-term boyfriend James Cook on Friday last week, in a star-studded ceremony that could outdo the Cannes Film Festival red carpet. The couple had become engaged in 2012 and their wedding was one of the most anticipated events on any socialite’s calendar. Among the famous faces who attended the wedding were ex-Spice Girl, Geri Halliwell and Andrew Lloyd Webber.

Victoria Beckham has decided against a new Spice Girls album and tour, leaving Geri Halliwell incensed. The former friends are no longer on speaking terms after Posh Spice rejected the idea of a "final fling" for the best-selling 90's girl group.
Geri and the rest of the girls - particularly Mel B and Emma Bunton - were keen on getting back on the road, though Victoria is presumably busy with her thriving fashion house. A source told the Daily Mirror, "Geri wants the girls to be back on the road as soon as they can. She's been trying to get in touch with Simon for the past few weeks but isn't getting anywhere. She and Victoria are no longer talking." One insider confirmed that Victoria's absence has essentially blown apart the entire comeback, saying, "A tour without Victoria is a real risk. She may not do a load of the singing but she brings a lot more than people think to the table."
The singer - easily the most successful and famous of the Spice Girls - has plenty on her plate in the coming months anyway. After leaving Los Angeles Galaxy, husband David Beckham is likely to sign for a new club in the near future, uprooting the famous family once again.

Trouble is brewing in Spice World yet again.
After the premiere of Viva Forever, the Spice Girls musical earlier this week, two distinct camps reportedly formed between the members of the former girl group. At the afterparty for Viva Forever, Victoria Beckham was shunned by the rest of the girls and herself refused to mingle with Geri, Emma, Mel B and Mel C. "Victoria sat on her own table away from the rest of the girls. They didn’t speak the whole time she was there," a source reported, quoted by the Metro.
Despite this little incident, all of the ladies seemed to be in high spirits after the show. Emma Bunton, 36, Geri Halliwell, 40, Melanie Chisholm, 38, and Melanie Brown, 37, reportedly took the event as a chance to let their hair down, mingling with the musical’s cast and producers and later dancing to some Spice Girls hits. Beckham, on the other hand, had chosen to spend the night close to her husband and three children, as well as talking to fashion critic, Susie Menkes.

The world premier of The Spice Girls musical VIVA Forever took place in London last night, but the group were upstaged as the Beckham family attended in full - minus youngest Harper - to take the glare of the snappers' bulbs away from the remaining members of the Fab Five. Indeed, you'd be hard pressed to find a picture of Victoria Beckham with her old group mates Melanie Chisolm, Emma Bunton, Geri Halliwell and Melanie Brown, the pop star-cum-fashion entrepreneur sticking largely with her husband and sons Brooklyn, Romeo and Cruz.
Viva Forever! is the new Mamma Mia!-esque West End production about a girl band on the way to becoming superstars on a reality show; a story that has a lot of the same feelings as the Spice Girls own story of stardom. Geri Halliwell, formerly known as Ginger Spice, said that she felt 'tearful' because of the feelings it brought up. Starring in the show is Hannah John-Kamen as 'Wannabe' star Viva and Sally Ann Triplett in the role of her mother.
The show has received lukewarm reviews so far particularly from The Guardian and The Independent with Guardian reviewer Alexis Petridis saying: "The lyrics are required to drive the action on and the lyrics of Spice Girls songs are appalling." However, all those involved were pleased with the result; Saunders insists that she has enjoyed the whole experience. "It's a relief but I hope it won't stop now, because I've enjoyed it so much," she said. "I'll probably still call in every couple of weeks and hope they still know who I am." Melanie Chisholm, formerly Sporty Spice, thought that the Spice legacy was all down to their honesty in their music. "We really spoke from our hearts," she said. "We loved working together and writing music together, and we feel really lucky that people identified with us."
The Spice Girls reunited briefly last night, but not for one last show together. Victoria, Emma, Geri, Mel B and Mel C attended the premiere of the Viva Forever musical at the Piccadilly theatre in London.
Beneath the poppy surface, the musical looks like a serious production, featuring some big names in the business. Viva Forever was produced and written by Judy Craymer, who also worked on the infamous Mama Mia, with the help of comedian Jennifer Saunders. It stars West End veteran Sally Ann Tripplett, as well as newcomer Hannah John Carmen. After the show, the guests of honor gushed about the experience of hearing the songs they wrote sung by an all-star West End cast.
"We're so proud of this. Jennifer Saunders has written an incredible story and we have a wonderful cast. It's a great, great show," Mel C commented on the performance. The ladies, most of whom attended with their children, said that they hoped the musical would be a good way to introduce The Spice Girls’ music to a younger audience, but that they were mostly happy to have the opportunity for the long awaited reunion. "It's been an amazing year for us. It's so nice to be with the girls," Emma Burton said after the premiere.
