Jack Whitehall has aired his excitement over the upcoming Spice Girls stadium tour, while suggesting that the group enlist him as “a replacement Posh”.
The iconic ’90s girl band announced their reunion earlier this week (November 5), taking to Twitter to confirm huge shows for Summer 2019. However, Victoria Beckham – aka Posh Spice – won’t be joining her former bandmates on stage. The fashion designer took to Instagram to “wish them so much love and fun” as they head out on the road.
Now, comedian Jack Whitehall has tweeted about the long-awaited reformation. “Spice Girls Reunion. Yes please,” he posted. “Apparently they are looking for a replacement ‘Posh’? You know where to find me.”
Spice Girls’ official account then retweeted the offer, along with the comment: “Is your dad available?”

“Yes and he looks great in leather,” Whitehall replied, referring to the leather catsuit worn by Posh in the ‘Say You’ll Be There’ video.

The comedian stars in Netflix‘s Travels with My Father alongside his former theatrical agent dad, Michael. The pair previously appeared together on the BBC talk show Backchat.
Elsewhere, Adele also shared her enthusiasm for the Girl Power gang’s return. Posting a photo of herself as a child in front of a Spice Girls-plastered wall, the ‘Hello’ singer said: “I AM READY”.
