Spice Girls are thought to be planning another treat to mark their 25th anniversary – by remaking the iconic 1996 Wannabe video.
A source has revealed that the Spice Girls had hoped they could tour next year to mark their 25th anniversary but are now trying to think of something else to do.
They said: “The Spice Girls were hoping to hit the road in 2021 to mark their big anniversary but now it’s not possible because of the pandemic.“
“Mel C suggested doing something around Wannabe — including the idea of possibly re-working the video for social media.”
“There are so many options and nothing is off-limits. They want to give the fans something special.”
Wannabe was a huge hit for The Spice Girls and became their best-selling song after it was released in 1996.
The now iconic video was shot on the staircase of the former Midland Grand Hotel in St Pancras, London.
And in January 2019 Emma returned to the filming location to snap a picture of herself on the staircase, which she called a “special place”.
It comes after Mel C was grilled about the rumours of another reunion with Geri, Mel B and Emma while talking to Zoe Ball on her Radio 2 Breakfast Show recently.
Fifth member Victoria Beckham turned down the 2019 tour as she wanted to focus on her family and fashion company.
Addressing the speculation, Mel admitted that the Spice Girls have been ‘constantly talking’ about a big world tour next year.
She said: “Ooh, do you know what, I wish, I wish. I think we all do, like all artists including myself with my solo stuff, we’re just having to wait and see what happens.”
“You know, the Spice shows are so huge and so many tours have been moved to next year. We’re talking about it constantly so as soon as we have any news on that front I will let you know.”
In April, Mel C again hinted she would love to see the group head back on the road, following the huge success of their UK reunion tour last year.
While only recently, Emma revealed that all five of the Spice Girls reunited for a socially-distanced walk in the woods.
Speaking on her Sunday evening Heart FM radio show, Emma told listeners that herself, Mel B and Victoria were joined by Mel C and Geri Horner for a hike.
Referring to the COVID-19 lockdown, Baby Spice said: ‘As things slowly, slowly start to get back to normal and we’ve all started to meet up with friends again haven’t we?
“Which is strange… I actually started to think I would never see them again… well unless it was on Zoom calls. And this week, yes, I finally got to meet up with Geri, Mel B, Mel C and Victoria!”
“Now you may think we propped up a bar somewhere or had drinks in the garden but no! We went on a social distancing walk in the woods, yes!”
