Mel C reckons that Victoria Beckham has begun to ‘come around’ the idea of all five Spice Girls reuniting.
The hugely successful girl group reunited as a four-piece without Victoria, 46, in 2019 for a sell-out tour across the UK and Ireland.
Now Mel C has admitted she found it ‘hard’ without her, and her bandmates – Mel B, Emma Bunton and Geri Horner – all ‘really missed her’.
Speaking to Zane Lowe in the latest episode of Essentials Radio on Apple Music 1, she explained: ‘Yeah, it’s hard. We found it hard last year and we did really miss her. But you’re right, we’re still really close.
‘She was very involved in the creative and everything that we were doing in the show. And I think she really found it difficult.
‘That first night, when the pictures were beamed all over the world, it was hard for her. And we’re hoping it was hard enough to bring her back.’
Mel C, 46, added that she’s aware she would not want Victoria or anyone to not do something ‘they don’t feel comfortable doing’.
The singer then suggests that the fashion designer may be open to the idea of a reunion with the rest of the Spice Girls in the future.
‘But yeah, we might have to get her hypnotized,’ she jokes. ‘I have to say, I feel like she’s coming around.
‘So we’ll keep working on her. But just between you and me.’
It comes after Mel C’s bandmate Mel B, 45, also teased that Victoria could make her return to the girlband.
Speaking to Metro.co.uk and other press about which members of the group will be involved in their potential future tour, she explained: ‘I think it’s all of us. I think so.
‘Until the restrictions are eased it’s all up in the air but we are all raring to go.
‘Between us as Spice Girls we are all dying to get back on stage and perform. We all really want to.’
She added: ‘All of the Spice Girls are really up for going back on tour, we can get back into that spirit.
‘I think people just need that light entertainment and that kind of joy of watching somebody perform.’
