Mel B teases special guests for Spice Girls reunion

Mel B has teased the Spice Girls will replace missing members Mel C and Victoria Beckham with special guests when they perform again.

Scary Spice is planning to reunite with Baby Spice Emma Bunton and Ginger Spice Geri Horner to celebrate the 20th anniversary of their debut single 'Wannabe' and first album 'Spice' as a trio as Sporty Spice and Posh Spice don't want to be involved.

It has been speculated that the threesome will take to the stage at Hyde Park in London next summer and Mel, 41, has teased that some other singers will fill in for the pair.

During an interview on 'The Late Late Show with James Corden' on Thursday night (08.09.16), she said: "We are going to do something, us three. We're going to perform and celebrate together. I think because we're a British band, we're probably going to start in London and work our way around and see whoever else wants to see it.

"I don't think we could ever replace Sporty or Posh, but I'd like to invite some people up on stage with us."

Corden then suggested famous Spice Girls fan Adele as a possible special guest following her recent impromptu performance of 'Spice Up Your Life' at one of her concerts.

To which Mel B - real name Melanie Brown - enthusiastically replied: "I love her!"

The 'Holler' singer couldn't resist having a bit of fun with Mel C and Victoria's decision not to be part of the reunion.

British host Corden, 38, asked why only three of the band are up for getting back together prompting Mel to exclaim: "Because the other two bitches didn't want to do it!"

However, she was quick to assure the studio audience she was only joking, saying: "Let me correct that - my other two fellow lovely ladies. Look, Victoria's busy with her great fashion line and Mel C's doing her own album. So they gracefully said, 'You know, you three, you go ahead and do it.' We're girl power, we support each other. So us three went, 'Ok, let's just us three do it.' "

Mel C recently admitted she felt the quintet's appearance at the 2012 London Olympics closing ceremony should have been their final one and admitted she has no interest in reuniting with the other members.

In an essay for LOVE magazine, she wrote: "Truth be told, earlier this year after several face-to-face meetings with the girls I made the difficult decision not to be part of a proposed reunion with Emma, Geri and Melanie. Victoria had already bowed out understandably with the demands of her fashion label and her rather large family.

"The hardest part for me was letting people down, the girls, the fans, civilisation?! Unfortunately something didn't feel quite right and I had to follow my gut.

"I'd love to play huge arenas across the world, sing our brilliantly bonkers pop songs and relive our former glory. It is of course a very lucrative opportunity too. But we were a five-piece band. Didn't we reach a peak with the Olympics? There's a lot to be said for bowing out on a high note."
