TAKE A DEEP BREATH,

ev­ery­one. The Spice Girls are of­fi­cially re­unit­ing. But spoiler alert: it’s with­out Vic­to­ria Beck­ham. Sob.

This means five have be­come four, and last week the re­main­ing

Wannabe hit­mak­ers – Geri Horner, 46, Me­lanie Chisholm, 44, Me­lanie Brown, 43 and Emma Bun­ton, 42 – un­veiled dates for an up­com­ing sta­dium tour. Emma en­thused, “It’s so ex­cit­ing…I just want it out there. It will be bril­liant.”

The Vic­to­ria-shaped hole has come as a shock to many, since in Fe­bru­ary the five mem­bers posted a photo to­gether and re­vealed they were plan­ning to work on new projects. And just last week Vic­to­ria at­tended an event with Mel C, who was per­form­ing, and gushed that she was “so proud” of her “fan­tas­tic” voice.

But a source close to the band told Grazia, “The whole re­union idea had been left hang­ing with Vic­to­ria, and rather than just keep hit­ting a brick wall, they thought, ‘Let’s do it on our own.’”

Ac­knowl­edg­ing the news, Vic­to­ria, 44, who is now recog­nised as an ex­tremely sought-af­ter fash­ion de­signer, com­mented, “I won’t be join­ing my girls on stage again but be­ing in the Spice Girls was a hugely im­por­tant part of my life and I wish them so much love.”

The ladies last per­formed as a quin­tet at the clos­ing cer­e­mony of the Lon­don 2012 Olympic Games. And now, tick­ets are on sale for the big­gest mu­si­cal come­back of the decade. Say You’ll Be There?
