The Spice Girls announced a six-date UK tour but will be without Victoria Beckham
Fans have been somewhat divided since the announcement of the Spice Girls Reunion Tour. While 90s Girl Power fever pitch has hit new heights with many thrilled the girl group are getting back together to sing their hits one more time, for others, now five has become four, it just isn't the same.
The Spice Girls as they once were
Speaking about their reformation, Mel B has remained hopeful Victoria Beckham - who has revealed she will not be coming with them on tour - will join her, Emma Bunton, Mel C and Geri Horner at some point.
A video message from four of the girls - excluding Victoria - is set to drop on Monday.
The long-rumoured 20th anniversary reunion of the Spice Girls looks like it’s FINALLY going to be happening, after endless months of speculation, with a big announcement set for Monday next week.
According to The Sun, after news broke that Mel B, Mel C, Emma Bunton and Geri Horner will be making an appearance on ‘The Jonathan Ross Show’ next weekend, it has been reported that the girls will be announcing a huge stadium tour next summer.
Although the reunion will not be including Victoria Beckham, who has always maintained that she won’t be participating in another full get-together, the newspaper reports that the other four members have recorded a special video message that will announce a British tour for 2019, and it’s expected to be released this Monday (November 5th).

The latter has threatened to sue the other girls.
It looks like there's another spanner in the works for the Spice Girls as they face further delay on their forthcoming reunion tour thanks to Victoria Beckham's refusal to participate. Apparently, things got rather heated in a recent telephone call between her and her frustrated bandmate Mel B.

Reports claim that the two women had a profanity-laden argument when Victoria allegedly threatened to sue Mel B, Mel C, Geri Horner and Emma Bunton if they attempted to profit from the Spice Girls reunion without her, despite the fact that she no longer wants to be a part of the live shows.

Ten songs you'll need on your summer playlist.
Forget Justin Timberlake and his sun-soaked latest release 'SoulMate', we're going back to the 90s for our big summer playlist. It's just not the weather for serious music, so we've put together ten songs that rate the highest in the ultimate cheese factor.
Shaggy - The Best Of...
Boombastic - Shaggy
It's difficult to forget this song, from Shaggy's 1995 album of the same name. It topped the UK charts and, like many of the best 90s tunes, it features a sample - that is, Marvin Gaye's 'Let's Get It On'. Just to make it more summery, the b-side was a remixed cover of 'In the Summertime'.

A new report from Variety suggests an animated film is in the works.
A month or so after the news that the Spice Girls would be getting back together, more details about what their reunion would actually look like are beginning to emerge, with the latest reports suggesting that they are planning an animated superhero movie.
With Victoria Beckham seemingly squashing hopes for a full reunion tour, saying back in February that “the girls are not going on tour… We were just bouncing ideas around,” the group’s legions of fans have been wondering what they’ll actually be doing.
Now, Variety reports that all five members – Beckham (‘Posh Spice’), Emma Bunton (‘Baby Spice’), Geri Horner (‘Ginger Spice’), Melanie Brown (‘Scary Spice’) and Melanie Chisholm (‘Sporty Spice’) -have signed up to having their likeness being used in a ‘girl-power’ themed superhero film, with each of the band having a power relating to their personality.
