Melanie Chisholm has confirmed she would like to get the Spice Girls touring again as soon as possible.

The girl group previously reunited in 2019 – minus Victoria Beckham – for a UK and Ireland tour.


The 90s pop band are celebrating their 25th anniversary this year and Chisholm has teased that there are plans for “many more exciting things later on this year”.

Speaking on the Celebrity Search Engine podcast about a Spice Girls tour, Chisholm said: “I can’t speak for everybody but if it was down to me, as soon as we can, we will.”

“The success of the shows in 2019 and just how much we loved it, we have to do it. If we don’t do it, I’ll be very, very cross!”

The 47-year-old Spice Girl, also known as Sporty Spice, also admitted that the girl band have never been approached by Glastonbury to perform.

Chisholm added: “The absolute dream! I would love to play Glastonbury, in fact all the girls would. But yeah, haven’t yet had that call.”

The Spice Girls fully reformed at the closing ceremony of the 2012 Olympics and performed a medley of hit songs, which Chisholm described as a “magical night”.


The singer also discussed on the podcast how the band were originally called Touch and would wear co-ordinated babydoll dresses until they decided to embrace their individuality.

In 1998 Geri Halliwell announced she was leaving the band and in 2000 the group went into hiatus.

Chisholm said on the podcast: “Now of course, a lot of water has gone under the bridge and we respect her decision. But it was tough at the time.”

Chisholm began her solo career in 1998 and has produced eight successful solo albums, with the latest self-titled Melanic C being released in 2020.

She has a daughter called Scarlett, born in 2009, with her former partner, property developer Thomas Starr.
