Victoria Beckham 'snubs Spice Girls reunion as band get set to release online game'
Victoria Beckham is reported to have snubbed the Spice Girls once again with the band said to have met for the first time in over a year.
The iconic girl band reportedly reunited on Tuesday to "record pieces in front of the camera" an online game they are creating.
But Posh Spice, 47, is said to rumoured to have turned down the girls' approach to join them and "has no interest" in being a part of the game.
Instead, she has been seen spending some quality time stateside with her daughter.
That meant that Geri Horner, 49, Mel B, 46, Emma Bunton, 45, and Melanie C, 47, were left to push on as a four as they attended Black Island Studios to work on the forthcoming project.
The remaining members of the band are said to be "excited" by the project.
A source told The Sun : "The Spice Girls are exploring a whole manner of new projects but this one was really exciting to them — their very own Spice game.
They continued: "The hope is that it won’t be too long before they get to show it to the fans because it’s something they’ve had in the pipeline for a while.
"It is one of several things they are working on, including an animated film, and they hope it will help celebrate the Spice Girls’ legacy."
The Mirror has contacted Victoria's representatives for comment.
It certainly wouldn't be the first time that Victoria has turned down the opportunity to be with her former bandmates again.
In 2019, the group were forced to tour as a quartet as Victoria decided to swerve the tour and instead focused on her fashion brand.
The Covid-19 pandemic is said to have cost the foursome millions in revenue due to cancelled tours.
They had planned to embark on a 25th anniversary tour at the start of this year but had to put it on hold because of the pandemic.
Mel B had boosted fans' hopes of a reunion in January when she claimed the old gang would would get back together "as soon as the rules will allow it".
She said: "People need a bit of entertainment. Music brings people together. I would love it - as soon as the rules allow it, then yeah.
"Until the virus gets under control I don't think anyone can securely say ''I'm definitely going on tour''.
"When it comes to putting on a show or concert, I don't know how people are going to do it without the proper guidelines and information, because things change on a weekly basis."
But she also admitted that she was "itching to get back on to the stage".
