Mel C is the only former band member holding back the Spice Girls reunion, according to recent reports.

Sporty Spice Melanie Chisholm has continued to show a certain amount of resistance to the proposed reforming of the 90s girl band, despite encouraging noises coming from all four other former members.

But Simon Fuller, the man behind the phenomenon, has managed to enlist Geri Halliwell and Emma Bunton in convincing MEL C to get in on the act again too, after MELANIE BROWN and Victoria Beckham have agreed to the deal.

Fuller told The London Eye "all of the girls are up for it and the reunion will definitely happen in the next 18 months," reports the Daily Mail.

But in a somewhat stinging attack on Mel C, he added: "She thinks her solo career is bigger than the band, which is just not the case. She needs to wise up and realise a reunion would be amazing for everybody concerned."

However, cautious of jumping on the Take That bandwagon, Fuller admitted that the comeback would be moderate and only part time, and that they wouldn't be releasing new records.

"The SPICE GIRLS will come back with a big bang, they'll do a whirlwind tour for six months and theyll be gone again," he said.
