Mel C on Spice Girls reunion: “We like to keep everybody guessing”

Singer says the group want to keep their "legacy" alive

Mel C has spoken to NME about the Spice Girls reunion rumours, explaining that the group are “figuring out” their plans.

Back in February, all five members of the iconic girl group were considering reunion plans, saying that “the time feels right to explore some incredible new opportunities together”

Since then, there’s been reports of new music, touring as a four-piece, and even an animated superhero movie

In April, Victoria Beckham appeared to dismiss any Spice Girls reunion speculation, with Mel B later fuelling rumours once again by saying that all five members would “definitely” be touring together.

“We are obviously talking, discussing opportunities for the future. [But] no big announcements to make, I’m afraid” Mel C told NME at the Ivor Novello awards today (May 31).

“It’s just really nice to be back together. We created something so incredible and there are quite a few people who would like to see us back on stage together, so we’ll see what we can do for you.”

Asked about conflicting statements made by the group’s members in the press, the singer replied: “We just like to keep everybody guessing. You know what, we are talking about a lot of different things. We’re so proud of what we created with the Spice Girls and it had an incredible impact of a generation of young people. We just want to keep that legacy alive. We’re just figuring out how we’re gonna do that.”

“All the great girls out there with great attitudes: Dua Lipa, Charli XCX. Adele, of course, being the queen of all. It’s incredible because I meet so many young artists and they are very excited to meet a Spice Girl. We did good.”
