Reports that Victoria Beckham is back with the Spice Girls, having signed up for a brand new docu-series about the iconic band have, understandably, sent fans into overdrive.

News that Victoria Beckham returned to her Spice Girls roots should probably have been a bit of a hint that she's been thinking about her time in the band. Despite turning down her chance to reunite with the girls on tour back in 2019, The Sun reports that Victoria has signed on the dotted line and is going to feature in the Spice Girls docuseries.

According to Mel B, who discussed the docuseries during a recent interview in Australia, the team behind Michael Jordan's series The Last Dance is producing the documentary. The Last Dance, a Netflix limited series, won an Emmy for Outstanding Directing For A Documentary/Nonfiction Program.

"The director and the whole concept of how that was shot and filmed is really, really, really good, " said Mel B during the interview. "So we’ll be doing our own version with them."

Many years have passed since the band's heyday but their star and popularity have never faded. If anything, their legend has grown, a fact that Scary Spice is all too aware of, although she admitted her children aren't quite so complimentary.

“My kids go, ‘Mummy, your music has come full circle’, and I’m thinking, ‘Ooh they’re going to compliment me’. Then I get told, ‘It’s come full circle because now you’re just vintage’. Old but good.”

The singer added that the new series promises to reveal plenty of unheard tidbits from the band members and those who worked alongside them. Offering an insight into the kind of high-quality entertainment we can expect, she shared a funny story about the source of some of their most beloved lyrics.

“The rap in the Wannabe video, I actually wrote on the toilet while the other girls were doing the vocals," revealed Mel B.
