So that's what last week's reunion dinner was all about.
Melanie Brown and husband Stephen Belafonte are trying to persuade her former Spice Girl bandmates to reform one last time at the World Cup in South Africa next summer.
All the girls – apart from Victoria Beckham, now forging ahead with her fashion career – are excited about the proposal, reports The Sun.
"Mel wants them to plough ahead as foursome if (Posh) doesn't want to take part," said a friend.
When the Spices held a string of 'farewell' concerts in late 2007, they unfortunately had to cancel dates in Cape Town.
This would help to make it up to fans there.
It would also serve as a trip down memory lane. In 1997 the feisty five met Nelson Mandela in Johannesburg while touring the country.
