Some of you will take great com­fort in the news out this week that the Spice Girls are get­ting back to­gether.

It’s mi­nus Posh but was she ever re­ally any­one’s favourite?

Some cru­elly dis­missed this feck­less, fun-lov­ing five as be­ing a band for the adhd gen­er­a­tion.

But they have left us with girl power and a fine le­gacy of lyrics for all time like ‘‘set your spirit free, it’s the only way to be’’.

In ac­tual spice terms they’ve al­ways been about as sub­tle as a lib­eral dos­ing of MSG. But sci­en­tists are still on the fence as to whether it’s re­ally bad for you.

Of course the cyn­ics among you might point out that they’re pos­si­bly all broke and Posh clearly isn’t so maybe that’s why she’s sit­ting this one out.

Per­son­ally I was al­ways team Sporty Spice, I could say it was be­cause she was the best singer but it was prob­a­bly a much sketchier rea­son than that.

Any­way all of this is aca­demic be­cause none of their spici­ness will be drift­ing any­where close to New Zealand.

All of that said there is the quiet hope they don’t keep go­ing un­til they’re on the pen­sion trail. They will lose some of their im­pact if they need to be wheeled out on the stage.
