Could they become one again? Mel C hints to possible Spice Girls reunion
But Posh is not likely to be part of the mix
Friday 28 February 2014
Sporty Spice Melanie C, born Chisholm, has hinted to a potential reunion in 2016.
Although Victoria Beckham, aka Posh Spice, ruled out going back to singing after performing at the 2012 summer Olympics.
2014 marks the 20th anniversary of the Spice Girls' formation. However, the girls did not release their first single "Wannabe" until 1996, two years after they first started working together.
Co-Spice Girl Mel B had previously led onto a potential 2014 reunion, to mark the band's 20th anniversary, however Mel C hinted to a possible 2016 return to the scene.
"It's funny isn't it because people are saying it's the 20 year anniversary of The Spice Girls, and we did get together in '94, but Wannabe wasn't released until '96 so we don't really see it until '96." Press Association reported.
"And you might see a few of us having a little dance about on stage, no plans, but we'll see what we can do for you."
In 2007, the girls had their first reunion tour, branded "The Return of the Spice Girls". They also reformed for a one-off performance at the closing ceremony of the London 2012 Olympics, during which the girls performed some of their biggest hits while balancing on the roof of some black cabs.
