Mel B lets cat out of the bag about June gig in Aussie TV interview...

15:03, Saturday, 28 January 2012

The Spice Girls are planning to reunite for the Queen's Diamond Jubilee this summer, Mel B appears to have let slip.

Speaking in an interview with an Australian TV station, the former Scary Spice was asked if the girls were going to be getting back together for the London Olympics.

She replied: "Ooh, I think the Queen's Jubilee concert is the event I'd be looking at more closely for that to happen."

But she quickly changed the subject, apparently realising that she wasn't supposed to let on yet.

And when she was off air she apparently told members of the crew: "I am going to be in such strife for saying that. It's all so totally bloody top-secret still."

Mel and her former bandmates Victoria Beckham, Mel C, Emma Bunton and Geri Halliwell are expected to perform at a special event at Buckingham Palace on June 4.

The girls had a successful comeback tour in 2007, but ended up cutting it short due to "family commitments".

Haven't seen this anywhere on Buzzjack- Is it time to give this up? thinking.gif

This has already been denied by Mel C I believe.

Ah now I feel silly! blush.gif

Yes Mel C denied they were reforming on "Lorraine" last week. Mind you didn't she deny rumours of the last reunion until the last moment?! ohmy.gif biggrin.gif

Mel C reveals there will be NO Spice Girl reunion…

Rumours have been rife that the Spice Girls have been preparing to reunite for the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee or the 2012 Olympics this summer, however, Mel C has sadly revealed that it’s not happening.

Speaking this morning on Lorraine, Sporty Spice said, “It's such an incredible opportunity and what a wonderful thing to be able to do. And the concert looks like it's going to be out of this world, but unfortunately – bad news for any Spice Girls fans – we don't plan to perform or reform. So I'm sorry to disappoint anybody.

“We often have things that we talk about. It was rumoured a lot about the Olympics and then of course the whole Diamond Jubilee thing came up. And it was something that we discussed, so it was in discussion, but unfortunately it's not going to happen."

She continued, "We have to respect each other's wishes. And we reformed in 2007 and we had an amazing time. The show was incredible and that kind of feels like our final farewell. And it would be such a great thing to perform for, but sadly not.”

Mel C also revealed that she loves Little Mix, and that she can see a resemblance between them and the Spice Girls, saying , “They are absolutely adorable and I love them and what I love about these girls is that they have got fantastic voices, they are really talented but they look like young girls.

“They’re not uber sexy, uber glam, I think they are really good, positive role models for young girls, which we don’t have that many of. So I’m really pleased on that front. And they remind me of the Spice Girls in that way, because they’re really fun and young and I think that’s what pop music should be about. It’s kind of got a bit too serious and a bit too sexy at times.

“My advice to them would be enjoy it, enjoy every minute because it doesn’t last forever and when you are in the middle of it you don’t think of the future.”

All five Spice Girls will be attending the press conference for the forthcoming musical 'Viva Forever'. It'll be taking place in the early afternoon (26th), and will apparently be held at the St Pancras hotel, where the Spice Girls filmed their debut music video 'Wannabe'.

Official website for the musical: http://www.vivaforeverthemusical.com


This week marks 5 years since the press conference for their reunion tour - can't believe it's been that long already! ohmy.gif The last time they were pictured together was in February 2008. Excited to see them together again. biggrin.gif

From Christian Vermaak(?)'s Instagram just now. To think I actually visited the old Grand Hotel at St. Pancra's only a few weeks ago when I was in London for the day and got all excited knowing it was THE 'Wannabe' staircase...I'm intrigued if Jennifer Saunders has written the script!

Looking really good! So happy to see them together biggrin.gif

The girls talking to ITN about what to expect from the musical...
SKOB
Love them!

It looks like I'm going to this since the boyfriend is a diehard fan and snapped tickets up straight away. I do love a bit of the Spice Girls so no complaints.
Lukuzz
I NEEED to see this, money, location and finding a friend to go with may be difficult though. How long is it planned to be on for atm?
Juranamo
Vicks looks AWFUL. sad.gif Mel C trying to be Mother Theresa? ohmy.gif
The rest look OK I guess... Doubt I'll catch this, good to see them back together though!

Neil

She's playing Mary Magdelene. (Try not to laugh at this next sentence) Chris Moyles is playing Herod (told you) and Tim Minchin is playing Judas Escariot...and Andrew Lloyd Webber is looking for the person to play Jesus on one of those 'I'd Do Anything For A Dream Like Maria' type shows in the coming months. I'd like to think the put down to prospective Jesuses would be 'HE'S NOT THE MESSIAH, HE'S A VERY NAUGHTY BOY!' *boom tish*

Various newspapers are reporting that a Spice Girls reunion at the closing ceremony of the Olympics is confirmed!


Victoria was interviewed in Ireland yesterday, and she said this about the girls:

QUOTE
“I’m so respectful of my past and I love the other girls. We have some fantastic fans.”

“Who knows, maybe some day we’ll do something else with the Spice Girls. I would love nothing more.”

“I don’t know about a comeback tour but I loved being back with the girls,” she continued. “There was a lot of fun, we did so much together and we’ll see. If they’re up for something then I certainly am.”
jay727
No they aren't performing at the closing ceremony. It will be headlined by Take That, George Michael and The Who
Jay ☆
That doesn't mean there won't be other performers though?
Lukuzz
Yeah I can't see it happening, a bit too late now. I'm sure they will do something though. Maybe a one off concert near the release of the musical?
zero
rolleyes.gif Its been all over the news that Poosh spice is performing with the rest of the "girls" ahem,at the Olympic Ceremony.
AaronTM
So it looks like the Olympic performance is likely to happen after all!

Victoria tweeted this this morning:



Shortly after, Geri tweeted "What a lovely day.... I'm smiling.....eeeeee" and tonight Emma has tweeted that hurt cheeks hurt (from smiling?). Mel C is a bit quiet, but Mel B tweeted that she was in London last night.

Oh and Dean Piper is usually reliable and he confirmed it haha.

So the Spice Girls are all together rehearsing for the Olympics RIGHT NOW in London. #itsonbitches

Pretty bloody exciting! #spicegirls

I'd like a Spice medley!!! No idea what they're singing....


So excited for this! I wish I had tickets, it'd be a dream to see them live, but it's never gonna happen. At least I'll be at home to watch it live.
Jonjo
Ooh! Very, very glad that they'll be performing together again at something like this. They are definitely worthy of being there, whether you loved them or hated them, they are very much one of the most successful and iconic British acts! Really pumped for their performance now. Hopefully it'll be a medley!
cassius__
SO EXCITED. It's going to be amaaaazing!! So jealous, my housemate is dancing in the Closing Ceremony (when Annie Lennox is performing)
ThePoguesmith
As I've said on Twitter this morning I hope the rumours of them and Take That performing are true...the rumours of One Direction also performing after them not so much. That'd be like finding out you had the clap the morning after.
ThePoguesmith
Mel B just sent the following on Facebook...

Neil
EEP! So excited. Then please announce a new reunion tour.
jay727
Haha love Posh posting a microphone..its not as if she's going to be singing into it!
At least Mel C is sounding very strong after hearing her on Superstar on ITV.

Take That are definitely performing, they will be doing Rule The World and rumoured 'Never Forget' although Howard has lost his voice according to reports so Gary might have to sing it instead

Posh sings... sometimes lol.

I am sure Gary would love that, considering how often the memebers that aren't him get their microphones muted.

Potential spoiler:

I won't say what they are performing, but there is a video of the girls rehearsing (audio only) on Digital Spy forums, so go there if you want to know!
Mikal
I'm so happy they're going to be there, can't wait to see them do Spice Up Your Life!

SPEECHLESS.

Beautiful. It was as if they never split wub.gif
Slick
It wasn't technically the best performance, but it was never going to be considering. It was AMAZING seeing them back next to each other and they were full of energy. One and a half songs was not enough!

TBH, I'm annoyed they didin't get a much bigger set than i expected. I truly believe they should have performed Viva Forever tbh, it would have been a perfect way for there last performance.

Yes. I think they should've taken Take That's place instead. Viva Forever or even Goodbye would've been perfect wub.gif

it was magical wub.gif

emma got the gold medal, ok? wub.gif
Simon.
Loved it wub.gif Highlight of the whole ceremony for me, never been about the medals! All about the Spicey reunion wub.gif

Thought some BJ members might enjoy this...Spice Girls meets Coldplay! Perhaps not haha laugh.gif

ThePoguesmith
I loved their Olympics performance...WISH they would tour again!

Three of them met up last night, at Little House Mayfair restaurant.





I wish they'd all be full time Spice Girls again! sad.gif laugh.gif
