Rumours have been circling for months that 90s pop icons the Spice Girls are to reunite for a special one-off performance for the Olympic Games Closing Ceremony in London on 12 August.
The organisers and the Girls themselves have been notoriously tight-lipped over confirming whether this will happen, so what can we glean from their recent interviews and tweets?
Pressed on the issue last Friday on American chat show Good Afternoon America, “Scary Spice” Mel B declared, “I think that would be a great idea. I am gonna be in London next week.” For the closing ceremony, perhaps? “That would be amazing. I am always up for a Spice Girls reunion.”
On the very same day, “Sporty” Melanie C was co-presenting Heart FM Breakfast, and did her best to dodge the question, giggling “I couldn’t possibly comment”, before later admitting she thinks the closing ceremony will be better than the opening ceremony and bursting into conspiratorial laughter. What ever could she mean?
“Ginger” Geri Halliwell took to Twitter this morning to share this thought: “What a lovely day…. I’m smiling…..eeeeee”, and as if these hints weren’t enough, “Posh” Victoria Beckham has pretty much given the game away with this picture of a familiar looking microphone…
The Spice Girls are in London. All five of them. Rehearsing for the biggest show on earth. We are officially very excited.
