Revealing Geri’s comment was tongue in cheek, the beauty has previously insisted Victoria is still very much in the Spice Girls despite not joining the band on tour.
Chatting on Lorraine on in November, the newly-reformed girl group reiterated that there is no bad blood between the four members going on tour, and the absent Posh Spice who is sitting it out due to her career as a fashion designer.
Each of them – Geri, Mel C, Mel B and Emma Bunton – insisted that Victoria is fully supportive, whether she is ‘on stage or off stage’ and that she won’t ever not be a Spice Girl.
‘Vicky is supportive on and off the stage,’ Geri said. ‘The five of us have always had this thing, we support each other on and off stage. We did speak to her and meet up with her and we said, “Look, you’re in the band on and off the stage, it doesn’t matter”.’
‘The thing is, we’re very proud of Victoria. She works incredibly hard and what she’s achieved is amazing.
‘She will always be a Spice Girl, as we will and always have been.’ added Mel C, with Mel B saying: ‘I’m hopeful we’ll get back together, I want to tour america too! It will work at some point!’
