Mel B reveals the Spice Girls WILL reunite for another tour – and it's sooner than you think

MEL B has revealed that the Spice Girls WILL reunite for another tour – and its sooner than fans may have expected.

The singing star dropped the date of 2023 for a round of comeback concerts as she appeared on Channel 4 show Steph's Packed Lunch on Friday.


Mel, 46, who featured on the show in honour of Black To Front Day, hinted that the Spice Girls were due to come together on stage once more.

She revealed that they were all "on the same page together" with their plans to reunite – setting the date as early as 2023.

Mel told host Steph McGovern: "We did our last tour and Victoria respectfully ducked out, and you have to respect when someone doesn't want to go on tour.

"I'm always pushing to have a Spice Girls reunion and we were in talks last year but then Covid hit so it pushed everyone's plans."

"I think we're hopefully on the same page together," Mel went on, before warning her bandmates would "kill her for" speaking about the tour.

"We're hoping, especially me, if it has anything to do with me, which it will have because I'm the driving force and will make sure it happens – to tour in 2023," she said.

Mel last toured the UK and Ireland in 2019 alongside her fellow Spice Girls bandmates Geri Horner, Melanie C, Emma Bunton.

Victoria Beckham, 45, better known to fans as Posh Spice, was the only member not to take part as she felt things were "different".

"It took me a lot of courage not to go on tour with the Spice Girls again," she told Vogue Germany at the time about her decision.

"[I was] the one who says, 'You know, I'm not doing it because things feel different now than they used to.' I'd rather concentrate on my family."

It follows reports that the fashion designer also snubbed her fellow bandmates as they planned to meet for an online game they are creating.

The Spice Girls were due to "record pieces in front of the camera" together, but Victoria was said to have "no interest" in the project.

While the four remaining singers went to Black Island Studios in London to film, Victoria stayed at home in America with her children.

A source said: "The Spice Girls are exploring a whole manner of new projects but this one was really exciting to them — their very own Spice game.

They continued: "The hope is that it won't be too long before they get to show it to the fans because it's something they've had in the pipeline for a while.

"It is one of several things they are working on, including an animated film, and they hope it will help celebrate the Spice Girls' legacy."
