Mel C reveals that she is attempting to convince Victoria Beckham to be part of a future Spice Girls world tour.

Mel C has admitted that she has been trying to use "emotional blackmail" to convince Victoria Beckham to rejoin the Spice Girls.

The group group reunited for a sold-out tour of the UK and Ireland in 2019 but performed as a four, with Posh Spice turning down the opportunity in order to focus on her fashion business.

Recently it emerged that the girls are in discussions about reuniting again for a world tour in 2023, and now Mel C has revealed that she and her bandmates are pressing Beckham to be part of the project.

"How can you be too busy to do a Spice Girls reunion?" she said on Zach Sang's show. "It is an interesting topic of conversation. Victoria didn't want to get back on stage and we completely respect that.

"I felt the same. I was like, 'It's five or nothing.' And then I just had a change of heart."

She continued: "Victoria gave us her blessing for the last tour. We hope that she will be back on stage at some point. That is the dream. That is the plan.

"We do work on her. There's lots of emotional blackmail. The shows in 2019 were so incredible.

"The reaction was great. We didn't get out of the UK and Ireland and it's a big old world out there. We have been lucky to do the US, but we have never done South America, Australia or South East Asia, which is insane.
Hopefully Victoria feels as if we missed out and hopefully that will bring her back."

The group recently celebrated their 25th anniversary with a deluxe reissue of their Spice album featuring unreleased demos and remixes.
