Geri Halliwell has revealed that it was Melanie Brown that stopped the Spice Girls from making a comeback at Live 8 last year.

In the past, Victoria Beckham and Mel C (Melanie Chisholm) were rumoured to be the ones holding up a reunion but Geri told OK magazine recently that last year, “we were all ready apart from Mel B.”

But after giving birth to daughter Bluebell in May, Geri doesn’t know whether she would be interested in a reunion now: “Victoria said maybe it’s time to move on and I think she’s got a point.”

“Maybe it’s better to keep the Spice Girls as a memory but never say never. A taxi driver said to me we could still do a reunion even if one of us didn’t want to do it.”

“As far as music is concerned, I feel like I’ve given it my best.”

“When I see the X Factor and see how desperate people are for that chance, I realise I’ve had my turn and now have to let it go.”
