Victoria Beckham has reportedly ruled out a Spice Girls return  – again.

The band are said to be mulling over plans for 2021, to mark 25 years of the chart-topping group, following their super-successful tour in 2019.

But Victoria – who sat out the last reunion – is said to be standing firm on her decision not to perform with the group again, leaving it to just the remaining four Spice Girls, Geri Horner, Mel B, Mel C and Emma Bunton.

A source told the Daily Star Online: ‘Victoria will always be a Spice Girl and loves the girls very much but due to other commitments would not be able to go on tour with them.’

This comes as the group marked 24 years since the release of Wannabe – their debut single that propelled the five-piece to stardom in July 1996.

Emma took to Instagram on Wednesday to share a snap of the single’s original CD cover, featuring the very young-looking line-up of Posh, Baby, Sporty, Ginger and Scary.

She captioned this: ❤️ 24 years of #wannabe! ❤️ 24 years of zigazig ah! ❤️ 24 years of amazing fans! ❤️ 24+ of friendship never-ending!’

Mel vowed to do ‘everything I can within my power to try and get all of us back on stage together’ in reference to Victoria taking part.

She said: ‘Yeah, of course we [want her to join]! We talk about it all the time. We’re always going, “Oh, one day, maybe she will one day!” We were kind of hoping she’d end up coming on the last one.

‘Of course, we respect Victoria’s decision, and her feeling towards it. Although she wasn’t with us on the stage, she was very much involved in the show.

‘We wanted her to be happy and comfortable with all of the direction, with the creative and everything, because it’s her baby as much as the rest of us.’

The songress, 46, explained that she wants to take the tour to America, South East Asia and Australia in the near future.

Asked if there’s a chance of the group going to America, she told Entertainment Tonight: ‘I hope so, I really do. We talk all the time, we talk about what we’d like to do, any options that we have. We would love to do more shows, we really would.

‘Obviously, [this year] has gone nuts and no one knows what’s gonna happen with shows, for now.

‘But personally for me, speaking on my own behalf, I would love to do Spice Girls shows in the US, in South America, in South East Asia, and get into Australia finally. All those places we never got to, as well as the US because I love to be there.’

She was also asked about the prospect of new music, to which she went on: ‘We have such an incredible back catalog and people love our music; we don’t want to produce anything that’s not of the standard of our other work.

‘We talk about it tentatively and we’re like, “You know what? We’re not gonna force the issue on that one.” We’d rather it happen organically.’
