A few months ago there were stories in the press that placed doubt about this band ever reuniting. Mel C screamed "never", Victoria "pouted" and Simon Fuller shrugged his shoulders. However, by the start of the year I'd been informed by quite a reliable source that the Spice Girls had actually already signed on the dotted line. So let me just take a little moment here to plump and ruff up my feathers and do a "I told you so" shimmy ala Grace's mum from Will & Grace. Ok.....done! Seriously though, when I said it was the year of the girlband I meant it! I won't add any more that you've probably read already other than one hopes NonStop of Portugal, Soap of Denmark and TrueBliss of New Zealand follow suit with immediate effect!
Anyway, check out this Reuters video-clip of the Spice Girls walking about and taking photo's in the grounds of The Royal Observatory in Greenwich. Note how Geri has developed into Edina Monsoon's younger sister.
