Victoria BeckhamVictoria Beckham and Melanie C have put a stop to any plans for the Spice Girls to follow Take That down the comeback path. The idea of a small scale tour later in the year, to celebrate the tenth anniversary of the group, had been suggested.

A source close to Mel C has revealed that “Melanie has never really been into the idea of performing with the girls again. She is proud of everything they did together but she has moved on.”

“She wants to concentrate on solo work. She met with Victoria, who was thinking the same thing. Posh is now heavily into fashion and realised the Spice tour had the potential to be a PR disaster.”

Geri Halliwell is expecting a baby in the summer so she’s not going to be in any position to start rehearsing for a while. Emma Bunton and Melanie Brown both wanted to do it but now Victoria and Melanie C have vetoed it.”
