It was rumoured last year that The Spice Girls were on the lookout for a new Posh Spice to take the place of original Posh, Victoria Beckham, who revealed that she wouldn’t want to return to the hit girl group full-time as she wants to concentrate on her family and her ambitions in the world of fashion.

A friend of Victoria’s told the Daily Record, “Victoria will not be performing with the Spice Girls again.

“She has nothing but love and respect for all of the girls and the journey they went on together.

“Now, though, her focus is firmly on her family and her fashion business.”

And today, it’s been confirmed that the four remaining Spice Girls, Geri Halliwell, Emma Bunton, Melanie Chisholm and Melanie Brown, want to go ahead with the plan to recruit a new member, and to then go on tour.

The abovementioned Daily Record reports that sources close to the girl band say they think the best way of finding a new Posh is through an X Factor-style show, and plans for that are actively underway.

One source saidm “Emma and both the Melanies are busy for the next year but are talking about doing something afterwards.

“It is a dream of Geri’s to get the girls back together for good, a bit like how Take That have done it…

“She has spoken to TV production companies about how it would work and has got herself very excited indeed.

“Things are gradually getting further down the line.”

    Bring it on :)
    As a big fan of the Spice Girls, I would be very interested in seeing this unfold, and then of course the tour afterwards :)

    Why would they replace Posh Spice? Okay, back in 1998 Ginger Spice left the group in 1998. Do they replace Ginger Spice? No, then leave alone it, The Spice Girls would be fine without Posh Spice. I think it would be stupid if they replace posh spice. Please, don’t be like the pussycat dolls. If they going to replace posh spice, then I might lose their respect.

    I think the Spice Girls were very much of the time and, if people like to see them perform now, it’s for nostalgia. I really don’t think they would translate well to a modern audience and, by trying to make a comeback, they would risk ruining their legacy. Posh Spice is well out of that one, in my opinion. As for the show, none of them are really replaceable. Looking for another Posh would be so contrived, you’d just have a load of (if you’ll pardon the pun) Wannabe’s!
