Spice Girls 'never asked' Victoria Beckham to join

  • Many a group Halloween costume has been inspired by this very image. The Spice Girls made their debut Brit Awards appearance in what can only be described as their greatest looks

It's been a Spice World kind of week.

The Spice Girls are back together.

Meanwhile, a source previously told ET that Victoria would not be joining the tour because 'she has a family to look after and also a business to run'.

On social media, many fans shared their joy at being able to see once again a band they loved in childhood, with one typical Twitter user posting: "My 12-year-old self is freaking out".

As the '90s pop group continue to dominate entertainment headliners, it seems that it was actually neither of these reasons. Uh-oh, awkward much? I saw them at O2 Arena in 2008, and they recently announced a new tour and I will be going to that somehow. "She was busy with her fashion and she has moved on ..."


The outing comes after the LaLa Land star revealed she changed her name in the second grade from Emily to match Baby Spice's name Emma Lee Bunton during an appearance on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon on Thursday. But she did raise the valid point that she was never really asked [to go on tour].

Her fellow Spice Girls gasped at the statement, before Horner continued: "I spoke to her before the announcement and she has said it for years that she just doesn't want to do it anymore, so we knew that".

"I know you've been bombarded with promo stuff lately but I just wanted to say I'm completely overwhelmed with the response to our tour", Mel C tweeted. "The philosophy of us is that we are a band, on and off the stage and we care for each other, we support each other and we support her and she has been a huge part of our lives and we care about her, so it's all good".

"She just didn't want to do it", Emma added. Yes it was, ' she said.
