Mel B says the Spice Girls will attend the Royal Wedding and hints that they'll perform

Following the news that the much-hyped "Spice Girls reunion" will be an animated superhero film, a recent YouGov survey has revealed the most popular member of the girl group.

Baby Spice is apparently the most popular Spice Girl, the poll of more than 31,000 Brits found, with more 37 per cent of the vote. She was followed by Sporty Spice, at 23 per cent, then Ginger, at 19 per cent, and Posh on 12 per cent. Scary Spice was reportedly the least popular of the group, with just 9 per cent naming her the best member.

However, the survey found that Scary Spice fans were most likely to describe themselves as "feminist" - 31 per cent were happy with the term, compared to 15-20 per cent for fans of the other Spice Girls. Her fans were also the biggest music lovers - almost one in five described themselves as a "music obsessive" - more than twice as much as those who preferred another band member.

Rumours of a Spice Girls reunion ignited after a picture of the former members together emerged online. However, Victoria Beckham - AKA Posh Spice - said: "The girls are not going on tour... we were just bouncing ideas around. Brainstorming."

Variety later reported in March that all five members have signed off on their likenesses being used in a "girl power" themed superhero film, with each group member having a power related to their personality.

Mel B - AKA Scary Spice - recently dropped a heavy hint that she and her former bandmates had been invited to the upcoming wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, who will be married on 19 May this year.
