Victoria Beckham has quashed reports the Spice Girls will reunite for a final time at former South African President Nelson Mandela's 90th birthday concert this summer - because she has quit the music industry.
The former singer made a return to the stage as part of the group's comeback world tour last year.
But the 34-year-old has ruled out ever performing with the band again - because she wants to concentrate on her career as a fashion designer.
"I loved the whole social thing about being back with the girls," she said. "It was so much fun."
"But I am not going to sing anymore - I've hung up my mic."
Few are likely to regret her decision. Beckham's music career faltered badly after first break up of The Spice Girls - she remains the only member of the band not to achieve a UK number one single as a solo artist.
