Both the BBC and ITV are eyeing the Spice Girls as big ratings winners in their ongoing Saturday night ratings war, a tabloid report claims.
The Mirror claims the two broadcasters want the reformed Spice Girls to appear on their biggest programmes ITV's The X Factor and the BBC's Strictly Come Dancing.
Both have previously featured guest appearances by big-name stars and adding the Spice Girls who announced their decision to reunite for a concert tour earlier this year - would certainly prove a worthy addition to the list.
But, according to the Mirror, the shows are such "bitter rivals" that Geri Halliwell, Emma Bunton, Victoria Beckham, Mel B and Mel C could only appear on one of the two.
Last year Baby Spice Emma Bunton who now has a baby of her own competed on Strictly Come Dancing and so may prefer the latter.
A BBC source told the newspaper: "The girls could perform a song or simply come down for the evening and give a few comments on the performances of the celebrity dancers."
"We would love them to make an appearance in some capacity."
