Stop right now! Here's everything you need to know about the Spice Girls reunion

Just how exactly will the nineties super-group be spicing up our lives?

By Bella Brennan
It's time to dust off your platforms, spritz the Impulse and squeeze into your Union Jack dress because the Spice Girls are back, baby!
That's right, over the weekend Emma Bunton, Victoria Beckham, Melanie Brown, Geri Horner and Melanie Chisholm proved that girl power is still very much alive and well after they met up for "top secret" discussions about a 2018 reunion.
It marks the first time in six years all five Spice Girls have been together in the same room.
Sure, it might be a huge money-making scheme but as Mel C puts it: "we need the girl power message more now than ever."
As Spice Girls fans lose their collective minds, here's everything we know so far about their comeback!

Are they performing at the Royal Wedding?

This would be too much!
And according to The Sun, the girls have set their sights on the global event of the year.
A source close to the band tells the British publication that Geri Horner wants their comeback to be inherently British and is gunning for a slot at Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's wedding.
"Geri suggested the Royal Wedding is a fantastic opportunity, and that they should offer to perform at the reception," an insider explained.

"She has been told that Meghan was a big fan of the Spice Girls. And the wedding fits in perfectly with Geri's idea that the reunion should be very British.
"She sees it as a big part of their identity, and one they should keep."
So far, no official comment has been made by the royals or the Spice Girls camp about the exact nature of their reunion but a royal wedding would 100% one-up their 2012 performance at the London Olympics Closing Ceremony.

Is Victoria Beckham refusing to sing?

Well, it depends on which report you read.
While we all know Posh was no Sporty in the vocal department, instead favouring the old point the finger and pout, she might be coming around to the idea of singing.
Initial reports from the Mail on Sunday claimed Victoria Beckham wanted a no-singing clause drawn up.
"Victoria vowed she would never sing with the girls again, and she won't," an insider told the paper.
However, after meeting up with her fellow bandmates and former manager Simon Fullers at Geri Horner's over the weekend, VB may have had a change of heart.
"Victoria was so cold on singing and performing with the Spice Girls again but Friday's meeting made her remember the good times," a pal revealed told the Mail on Sunday.
"The girls sat together laughing and remembering the fun and special times and she is now very much in."
In 2016 the fashion designer, who embarked on a short-lived solo career in the early 2000s, revealed the true extent of her dodgy vocal cords.
"They used to turn it off and just let the others sing. I got the last laugh — and now my mic is well and truly on, finally," the mother-of-four confessed.
But with the lure of a £10 million cheque (which is a cool $AUD17.8 million), Posh is said to be keen to get the girls back together and embark on a world tour.
The savvy entrepreneur reportedly wants to funnel her hefty cheque straight back into her fashion business.
Posh loathes singing but may have had a change of heart. £10 million would do that to most crap singers!

What other Spicy projects are in the pipeline?

With their former mastermind manager Simon Fuller back on board, the band are rumoured to be gearing up to release a greatest hits album, a new line of merch, endorsement deals and bizarrely, star as judges on a talent show in China billed which will "find the next global pop star."

What's the deal with the apparent white powder in this photo?

After the initial shock of seeing our favourite girl group back together, eagle-eyed fans were quick to point a rather curious detail to their reunion snap.
Many fans claimed there was what looked to be a "white powdered" substance in the background on someone's phone.
"Is that a bit of gear on ur iphone," one used asked.
"Look at your telephone," another chimed in.
However a source close to the girls tells The Sun it was simply the reflection from a candle.
Despite the supposed optical illusion, it still hasn't stopped the "Snorty Spice" jokes.

But apparently it's just the reflection of a candle.
