Mel B is reportedly hoping to make up with Victoria Beckham in a bid to persuade her to take part in a Spice Girls reunion.

The 42-year-old Spice Girl recently rekindled her relationship with her family following her split from ex-husband Stephen Belafonte, and according to the New York Daily News she is now hoping to build bridges with her former bandmates as well.

A source claims 'Scary Spice' Mel is trying to organise a reunion dinner for all five Spice Girls, including 'Posh Spice' Victoria, despite years of tension between the pair.

The insider said: ''The first thing Mel needs to do is clear the air and get their friendship back on track. They need to mend fences and work through their tension, which means a lot of Mel eating humble pie. The notion of performing together is totally out of the question for Victoria, but other projects could work at this time.''

Mel hopes to persuade the fashion designer to ''forgive and forget'' so that the band can reunite to mark their 25th anniversary in 2019.

The former 'X Factor' judge has recently undergone a bitter divorce battle with producer Stephen which finally ended with Me agreeing to pay her ex around £180,000, including legal fees, spousal support, a share from co-owned business and their house sale.

And Mel thinks a Spice Girls reunion could help fund her expensive divorce.

The source said: ''Mel feels a Spice Girls reunion over the next couple of years, along with lucrative TV deals and endorsement will help recoup her payout to Belafonte.''

It has been reported that all five Spice Girls - including 'Sporty Spice' Mel C, 'Ginger Spice' Geri Horner, 'Baby Spice' Emma Bunton and Victoria have agreed to take part in a TV documentary in 2018.

But when asked about a reunion in November 2017 on UK TV show 'This Morning', Victoria said: ''It's not happening. At some point you have to know that was great ... Girl power is still out there, and I still believe in it. But I won't be slipping into a PVC catsuit any time soon.''
