Spice Girls confirm 'new opportunities' after reunion meeting with manager

The Spice Girls have confirmed plans to work together again on new projects.

A statement from publicist Jo Milloy on behalf of the group said: "We have enjoyed a wonderful afternoon catching-up and reminiscing about the amazing times we have spent together.

"We are always overwhelmed at how much interest there is across the whole world for The Spice Girls.

"The time now feels right to explore some incredible new opportunities together.

"We all agree that there are many exciting possibilities that will once again embrace the original essence of The Spice Girls, while reinforcing our message of female empowerment for future generations."

The Spice Girls hinted that they could be making plans to reform after a meeting with their former manager Simon Fuller.

Victoria Beckham posted a picture of herself with former bandmates Emma Bunton, Geri Horner, Mel Brown and Melanie Chisholm with the caption: "Love my girls! So many kisses! Exciting!"

The post was shared by Bunton who wrote the "future is looking spicy" while Horner said "#girlpower is alive and well".

Brown, also known as Scary Spice, shared the photo captioned: "These amazing women have helped me become who I am,so to all the girls out there remember 'friendship never ever ends'!"

They shared the post after the quintet, who have not been seen together since 2012, met at Horner's Hertfordshire home alongside their former manager Simon Fuller.

After debut single Wannabe hit number one in 1996, the Spice Girls became a smash-hit success before splitting in 2000.

They embarked on a three-month tour of Europe and the US in 2008 to tie in with a greatest hits release and to act as a final farewell to fans.

The last time they performed together at was in 2012 at the Olympics closing ceremony.

An expected comeback in 2016 with Brown, Horner and Bunton failed to materialise.

Representatives for the five members have been contacted but no official announcement of a reunion has been made.
