the Spice Girls were thrilled to learn the five-strong band is set to perform
at the Olympics this summer.
However Victoria Beckham has only agreed to the reunion on the
provision the girls will never reform again, sources have said.
close to Geri Halliwell told MailOnline that Ginger Spice said: ‘After the
Olympics I can't imagine even talking to her again, let alone being on a stage
with her. Mel B. was right, she has lost the spirit of the band.’
Stop with the Spice: Victoria Beckham is said to have agreed to a final reunion with her former band mates on the provision they don't reform again
fashion designer Victoria is keen to distance herself from the group that found
her fame, may not come as a huge surprise given the seemingly obvious tensions
between her and the rest of the Spice Girls at the Viva Forever launch, where
she posed for pictures stood away from the group.
Mel C and
Mel B voiced frustration at being left off the bill for the Diamond Jubilee
concert last month and it appears the girls blame Victoria.
pals: ‘None of us can understand why she won't take advantage of these
opportunities. Now is the time to be together again as a band and she and Mel
B. can't be in the same room together.’
Not impressed: Geri Halliwell told pals she cannot see herself talking to Victoria after the Olympics
about meeting up at the Viva Forever press launch she added: ‘After the stunt
she pulled at the Viva Forever press conference she said she's never preform
with us again and then with David not being chosen for the team, she didn't
even want to discuss it.’
spokesperson for Victoria told MailOnline: ‘The Spice Girls have received some
amazing invitations to perform over the last few years, however personal family
and professional reasons mean this has not been possible, the Olympics is one
more amazing opportunity but no announcement has been made or confirmation
given, so this is nothing more than speculation at this time.’
Back together: The girls have not performed together since 2008, seen here in 2007, despite being offered numerous opportunities
While there has been no official announcement about the girls taking part in the official Olympics closing ceremony a source told MailOnline the girls will be singing two numbers one of which will be their 1997 hit Spice Up Your Life, the other is thought to be Wannabe.
The group hasn't sung together for four years since 2008 but if they do go ahead with the coveted gig they look set to join the likes of Take That, George Michael and The Who on stage.
Recently Beckham fuelled rumours she'd be happy to reunite for a one-off show on RTE radio's John Murray Show saying: 'I’m so respectful of my past and I love the other girls. We have some fantastic fans.
'Who knows, maybe some day we’ll do something else with the Spice Girls. I would love nothing more.
'I don’t know about a comeback tour but I loved being back with the girls. There was a lot of fun, we did so much together and we’ll see. If they’re up for something then I certainly am.'
She added: 'We are so proud to be English and we are very excited about the Olympics.'
A spokesperson for Geri was unavailable for comment earlier today.
