On Monday, November 5, time stood still when at 3pm London time, the Spice Girls announced that they are doing a reunion tour.
While fans of Baby, Sporty, Ginger and Scary Spice are covered - the resident fashionista Posh Spice has confirmed she will not be joining her girls.
Victoria Beckham, 44, has spoken out about her decision to forgo the reunion.
Taking to Instagram, the mum-of-four penned a heartfelt message, writing, “Today marks a special day for the girls as they announce the first tour dates since we performed together in 2012!”
Posh continued, “I won’t be joining my girls on stage again but being in the Spice Girls was a hugely important part of my life and I wish them so much love and fun as they go back on tour next year. I know they will put on an amazing show and the fantastic fans past and present are going to have a wonderful time! X vb #spicegirls.”
Beckham also released a statement, explaining she is unable to participate in the tour “because of her business commitments … but will always be one of the Spice Girls and remains aligned with Emma, Mel B, Melanie C and Geri in preserving their unique legacy.”
The designer is the head of one Britain's most iconic fashion houses.
The reunion tour must have been a very recent development after she told Vogue in February, “The girls aren’t going back on tour.”
