So, will the Spice Girls be marking the 30th anniversary of their formation back in 1994 by taking to the stage at next year’s Glastonbury Festival? No. They will not. But don’t worry, there’ll be some anniversary style nonsense going on somewhere. And maybe even involving Victoria Beckham.

Some people – definitely some – had speculated that the Spice Girls might play Glastonbury next year, partly because Mel C, after doing a solo spot at the festival this year, said: “All of the Spice Girls would like to play Glasto, that is the truth”.

But, when asked in a new interview with the Sunday Times about a possible Glastonbury performance to mark the group’s 30th anniversary, Geri Horner insisted that that is not currently being discussed.

However, she said, “at some point there will be something” to mark the anniversary. So, what could that be? Well, The Sun reckons it could involve a new tour – this time with past hold-out Beckham possibly on board – plus a new documentary.

Says one of those pesky sources: “The girls have discussed a documentary which would show never-before-seen, behind-the-scenes footage plus present-day interviews. All five are on board to mark 30 years in some way, shape or form. It’s very exciting”.
