Mel B has revealed she has plans to reunite the full Spice Girls lineup for Glastonbury‘s 50th anniversary next year.

In an interview with the Mail On Sunday’s Event magazine, the singer – real name Melanie Brown – spoke about her relationship with the other four members and her ambitions for the group after their sold-out stadium shows in the UK this year.

“I don’t want it to end,” she said. ”It was me who spent years and years nagging the rest of them to get back out there.

”Now we’ve done it, and we loved it. I’m going to make sure there will be more.”

She said she was also determined for Victoria Beckham to take part, saying: ”Victoria is Victoria. She didn’t want to do it. She missed out.

“But my plan is for all five of us to do Glastonbury next year for the 50th anniversary. I’m in the process of persuading Victoria to do it. And I will make it happen.”

Beckham, who was known as Posh Spice in the group, had consistently said she did not want to take part in the reunion and that it took “courage” to turn down the invite.

“It took me a lot of courage not to go on tour with the Spice Girls again, but to be the one who says: ‘You know, I’m not doing it because things feel different now than they used to’,” she said in an interview with Vogue Germany.

“I’d rather concentrate on my family and my company. I’m 45 now and very happy to be the woman I am… I’m not trying to change, I want to be the best version of myself. Before I turned 40, I wasn’t that confident. I learned to listen to my gut feeling.”
