On Friday, it was reported that the Spice Girls may be reuniting for an EPIC 20th anniversary, international tour next year. LOVES it!
Unfortunately, the girl band will supposedly be missing one crucial member during the tour — as Victoria Beckham (AKA Posh Spice) has decided not to join in on the fun. Whomp, whomp.
However, Emma Bunton (AKA Baby Spice) has since played down any reunion rumors.
"If anything happens and it's concrete, and we decide on something, I will let you know, but nothing's happening at the moment."
Woke up this morning wondering whether I need to start practising my backflips???!!! 😳

That's not quite a denial ladies!
An insider shared:
"This will be one of the biggest pop reunions of all time. There is a huge demand for the Spice Girls to get back together, especially with the nostalgia around the two-decade anniversary of their first release next summer."
Though David Beckham's lady love may be resolute in her decision to remain absent from the tour, there is a rumor that the group is open to her return if she changes her mind.
Miz Beckham did JUST post some serious love for her former band (below).
Oh we hope this happens — the British pop singers' Olympics 2012 performance was EVERYTHING.
The insider continued:
"Victoria wishes the girls the best of luck. She knows the reunion is on but has declined to be involved. She is far too busy running her fashion brand and looking after her family to get back on a stage. She also feels that they left the stage on an amazing high with their Olympics performance and worries a reunion could tarnish their legacy."
Hmm, very inneresting.
Reportedly, the America's Got Talent judge has been the driving force behind the anniversary tour and will not let the lack of Posh spoil the festivities.
The insider noted:
"There's no love lost between Mel B and Victoria, who is still very close to the other girls. But Mel has been desperate to make this happen for a long time and she wasn't going to let Victoria get in the way.
For a long time they put off the idea of working any projects without her because they wanted to stay as a five-piece, but with the 20th anniversary coming up they realized it was a case of now or never."
Who can blame her?! The Spice Girls last tour was in 2007 and members racked in £107 million in ticket sales and merchandise. FIERCE!
Well, 2016 just got a lot more inneresting! Though we're still anxiously awaiting confirmation for this rumored tour and hope that Vicky B changes her mind as plans become more concrete.
