There have been rumours of a new album and greatest hits tour

| Updated:

Victoria Beckham has revealed the recent Spice Girls reunion was NOT about touring or new music.

The iconic band sparked a global frenzy in February when they shared photos to social media showing all five women together for the first time since 2012.

Rumours swiftly followed about a possible new album, greatest hits tour, television opportunities and more.

But in a new interview with Grazia that will no doubt disappoint fans, Victoria has said none of that will ever happen…

She said: “There is no tour, no more music from the Spice Girls, but it was great getting together with them.

“We were just saying girl power is such an important message and how do we communicate that? How do we pass the baton on, how does that look to future generations?

“And that’s what it’s about with us. It’s not about all the rumours about going on tour and recording new material.”

That echoes what Victoria said during an appearance on James Corden’s The Late Late Show over in the US earlier this month.

She told him: “It’s not about us going on tour or recording new material but how do we pass the girl power message on to future generations? What does that looks like? What is it? Never has there been a more important time to spread that message.”

Vic did say she’d up for doing a Spice Girls Carpool Karaoke with James, though!

Following the Spice Girls reunion in February, the band issued a statement: “We have enjoyed a wonderful afternoon catching up and reminiscing about the amazing times we have spent together.

“We are always overwhelmed at how much interest there is across the whole world for the Spice Girls. The time now feels right to explore some incredible new opportunities together.

“We all agree that there are many exciting possibilities that will once again embrace the original essence of the Spice Girls while reinforcing our message of female empowerment for future generations.”

Geri sent shockwaves through fans in 1998 when she quit the band, leaving Mel C, Mel B, Victoria and Emma to continue as a foursome until 2000.

Their last performance together was at the London Olympics 2012 Closing Ceremony, where they got back together for a medley of hits, and that same year they were pictured together at the launch of the the short-lived musical, Viva Forever.
