Halliwell confirms Spice Girls considering reforming

Geri Halliwell has confirmed the Spice Girls are discussing reforming again.

The singer, who famously quit the girl band in May 1998, says she and the other members – Victoria Beckham, Mel B, Emma Bunton and Mel C – are considering getting back together for a third time.

She said on UK TV show ‘This Morning’: "We are friends first and foremost. Obviously a career and music evolved through that friendship I think. Whatever happens afterwards is a bonus. We always talk about creative plans. Right - now, I'll be honest: We are gathering information about a possibility, but I don't like to... when you are evolving a plan, you don't want to share it with the world."

Her comments come just days after she met up for dinner with Emma and the two Mels, where it is thought they discussed the plans.

Mel B later hinted at an imminent reunion, writing on her Twitter account: "Spice girls, stadiums?????????? Had dinner with the amazing melc emma and geri I love them so much (sic)."

Victoria was not at the meeting, because she was busy launching her Spring/Summer 10 collection at New York Fashion Week.

The girl group shot to fame in 1996 with their hit single 'Wannabe'. They sold over 65 million albums before going their separate ways in 2001.

They briefly reformed in 2007 for the hugely successful 'Return of the Spice Girls' tour, which saw them perform 47 concerts across the world.
