After it was claimed by The Sun that all five original members of the band - Victoria Beckham, Emma Bunton, Mel C, Mel B, and Geri Halliwell - had been in secret talks for a possible 2018 reunion, Posh Spice herself came forward to clear the air.
Beckham, appearing on This Morning, told Alison Hammond: "It's not happening. At some point you've gotta know when it's time to say, 'that was great'. Girl Power will always be out there and is something that we all still believe."
"What I do now is still all about girl power, but it's empowering women through power," she added. "I don't think I'll be slipping into a PVC catsuit anytime soon." Beckham had previously been reported as one of the main reasons a reunion had been held back for so long, due to her family commitments and focus on her career in the fashion industry.
The Spice Girls originally formed back in 1994, recording three studio albums (and making one bizarre film) before they officially split in 2000. That's not before they became an international sensation that helped make the '90s the era of "girl power".
However, they'd already united by 2007 for a live tour, and last performed together at the closing ceremony of the 2012 London Olympic Games.
