This is huge!!!!!
According to a new report out in The Sun, it appears that the Spice Girls will reunite for a TV special and a compilation album at some point in 2018 — and yes, Victoria Beckham WILL reportedly be involved!!!
It had been exceedingly difficult the last few years to get any full Spice Girls reunion up and running, especially with Victoria generally holding out from re-joining the group for any sort of performance nostalgia, but sources are now saying that the group has been locked in “secret talks” for months, and it looks like things are FINALLY starting to come together.
One insider said of the situation:
“The five of them have been locked in secret talks since the summer, and finally they are all on-board for a 2018 reunion. As it stands, they will be working together on a series of projects, which will include an album and a TV special celebrating the Spice Girls. And getting Victoria to agree has been a coup for everyone involved, given she has always been the person holding back on a reunion. The fact she is on board now is down to how much closer the five of them have become recently.”
Simon Fuller has been working with the group for their reunion, and it appears that all of this has come about in the wake of Mel B‘s divorce battle, as well as the birth of Geri Halliwell‘s son, Monty.
Life changes like that which have taken place in the next few months are said to have had a big impact on getting the group back together again, with one source saying:
“Things between them were quite icy at the start of the year. But gradually the ice thawed, and Mel was the one who drove that. Mel’s divorce battle also helped to bring them back together, as did the birth of Geri’s son. Plans at the moment are still in the early stages, and everything involving the girls tends to be complicated because they are so busy. It is not easy to get them all in the same place at the same time. But the team behind the reunion are delighted to have made it to this point.”
We are delighted, too!!!
There is still quite a bit of work to do before we get whatever’s coming to all the fans in 2018, but here we go — it looks like the Spice Girls are back, and better than ever!!!
