Stop right now! The Spice Girls are (kind of) getting back together, again

The Spice Girls have confirmed they are reuniting, but what they'll be doing together remains a mystery.

The 90s chart toppers, who burst onto the pop scene in 1996 with their debut single Wannabe, confirmed in a statement they intended to reunite "to explore some incredible new opportunities together".

"We are always overwhelmed at how much interest there is across the whole world for the Spice Girls," the statement, issued by band member Victoria Beckham's publicist Jo Milloy read.

"We all agree that there are many exciting possibilities that will once again embrace the original essence of the Spice Girls, while reinforcing our message of female empowerment for future generations."

Their announcement followed multiple teasing social media posts showing all five band members — Geri Horner (Ginger); Melanie Chisholm (Sporty); Beckham (Posh); Melanie Brown (Scary); and Emma Bunton (Baby) — together for the first time since their appearance at the 2012 London Olympics.

"Lovely seeing the girls #girlpower is alive and well," Horner wrote, while Bunton captioned her picture: "#bffs always … the future is looking spicy!"

The reunion also included the band's former manager Simon Fuller.

Despite social media comments from fans begging for concert dates and tickets, it is unclear what form the reunion will take.

British media reported the women had been offered a television deal, with music magazine NME citing rumours Beckham had been guaranteed she wouldn't have to sing as part of the project.

The Spice Girls split in 2000, two years after Horner, formerly Geri Halliwell, left the group.
