The Spice Girls planning TV documentary?

The Spice Girls are planning to document their comeback for the small screen.

Three members of the girl group - Mel B, Geri Horner and Emma Bunton - are reportedly in talks for a three-part TV series to follow them on the road to their big 20th anniversary celebration.

A source told The Sun newspaper: "The Spice Girls comeback is the big story in pop so it's no wonder the girls want to maximise their popularity.

"There is certainly a big audience for it. BBC, ITV and Sky will no doubt be fighting it out for the rights. The girls are always good value, so there will be plenty of material."

However, it is thought the trio won't be joined by their bandmates Victoria Beckham and Mel C as they film footage from the recording studio and relive memories from the 90s.

Meanwhile, the news comes only hours after it was revealed Simon Cowell is "desperate" to spearhead a Spice Girls album.

A source said at the time: "Simon is desperate to make a new Spice Girls album. He doesn't want to miss out after the first time around. He spent the X Factor auditions last week quizzing Mel about the band and said he would do 'something mega' if they signed with him.

"He kept asking if they were going to be producing new music and said if so, he wants to do it with them. He even went as far as warning Mel that they'd better not talk to any other labels before meeting with him. Mel deliberately kept coy and told him they 'hadn't finalised everything', but he wouldn't leave it alone."

Mel has previously revealed The Spice Girls are determined to mark the 20th anniversary of their debut album in some way.
