Spice Girls members release video hinting at a possible reunion
In a video released on YouTube late Thursday, Geri Horner, Emma Bunton and Mel B - commonly known as Baby, Ginger and Scary - announced they will stage a reunion in commemoration of the band's 20th anniversary.
"You've stood by us for 20 years, and we want to say a big thank you," Horner says in the video.
The former quintet, now trio, revealed that there will be a big celebration at some point in the near future.
"And we want to celebrate and have a party. And when we do, you're all invited," adds Brown.
"We hope to tell you soon what you really really want," the written message signs off.
The video is hosted on a website called Spice Girls GEM – acronym of the singers' first names.
The message comes the day after The Sun reported a planned reunion concert in London's Hyde Park in 2017.
Melanie C – Sporty - is reportedly still undecided, saying: “I am keeping tight-lipped. There are lots of discussions going on. Right now I am in the studio working on my own album and that is my focus. I'm taking it slowly."
However, she tweeted on Friday morning: "Happy 20th birthday Wannabe - you haven't aged a bit!"
Victoria Beckham, known as Posh, is also notably absent. Her rep stated: “Victoria has been very respectful about the fabulous time they had together in the past, however, her focus is now very much her family and fashion business.”
There are no confirmed live dates yet, but music producer Eliot Kennedy has confirmed that Bunton, Brown and Horner have been working on new music.
He told ITV's Good Morning Britain: "We have been in the studio, with just three of them - Mel B and Geri and Emma - and we had a fantastic couple of days.
"We wrote a brilliant song and the energy was exactly like it was 20 years ago, just as enthusiastic, just as much to say, just as much to celebrate.
"I think they have something to do with way female artists are perceived in the pop charts nowadays, I think they've had a massive effect on pop music and pop culture, so it's a good time to celebrate."
