Emma Bunton has high hopes for the much-discussed Spice Girls reunion, but she’s not sure it will include a full line-up because a certain Posh Spice may very well be absent.
“It is something we’d love to do, but we need to get organising. It’s a big part of our lives and I’m hoping we can get it together,” Bunton said in an interview in this week’s Radio Times magazine.
But if fans are hoping for the whole band to become one again, it looks like there might be some disappointment.
“Victoria [Beckham] is a Spice Girl through and through, but she’s doing amazing things with designing and I’m not sure it’s something she’d be a part of. But I know for a fact she’d be in the front row cheering us on.”
Bunton admitted she still dances around to Spice Girl tracks in her kitchen – “Wannabe is a favourite, as is Who Do You Think You Are” – and after a bit of gentle persuasion, she admitted which band mate she’d take to a desert island.
“Geri would be very practical and decisive. Mel B would be an absolute hoot, but we probably wouldn’t survive. Victoria would make me laugh – she’s got the driest sense of humour – but I’m going to go with Mel C. She’d look after me and I’d need a powerhouse character to get me through.”
Bunton continues to DJ on Heart FM’s breakfast show and is adding new entertainment series Too Much TV to her CV – but it’s acting that she says she’d “like to do more of.”
“Before the Spice Girls I was in EastEnders and The Bill and I’ve done a few Harold Pinter plays. I also have a cameo in Absolutely Fabulous: the Movie,” she added.
