The Spice Girls have revealed that they didn’t even ask Victoria Beckham to join them on their reunion tour.
Geri Horner, Emma Bunton, Melanie Brown and Melanie Chisholm told Jonathan Ross on his UK chat show that they knew the fashion designer didn’t want to revisit her pop star days so didn’t see the point in bringing it up with her.
Mel C revealed: “Do you know what is actually quite funny … I saw Victoria recently and obviously we’ve all been in contact, she is still very much a part of the Spice Girls, she really supports us and we really support her. But she did raise the point that she was never actually asked. We just presumed.”
Geri added: “I spoke to her two days ago, before the (reunion tour) announcement and she has said it for years that she just doesn’t want to do it anymore, so we knew that.
“She just didn’t want to do it … She was busy with her fashion and she has moved on. The philosophy of us lot is that we are a band, on and off the stage and we care for each other, we support each other and we support her and she has been a huge part of our lives and we care about her so it’s all good.”
But the girls did admit that Victoria didn’t enjoy performing anymore and they didn’t want to force her to join them because of that.
Geri revealed: “You don’t want to make somebody do something they don’t want to do.”
Emma added: “We realised that a while back that she didn’t enjoy that so much.”
