Mel B has again insisted the Spice Girls will reform, despite vocal opposition from MEL C - and is already writing a new song for the reunion.

Reports the five piece will get together for a lucrative reunion tour have been circulating for some months after the girls appeared to patch up the differences between them which have lingered since their 2000 split.

However, SPORTY SPICE Mel C has repeatedly vowed not to take part in a reunion, after enjoying a more successful solo career than the other girls.

But Mel B, currently starring in New York musical RENT, is convinced the Spice Girls will perform together again.

She says, "We will probably do something together as a group, but not for a while. I think they are going to release a (greatest hits) album, and hopefully we will all get together and write a song for it.

"We keep on talking about it, but everybody has branched off to do their own thing."
