Two decades after the Spice Girls revolutionised the 90s pop landscape, members Emma Bunton, Melanie Brown, Melanie Chisholm and Geri Halliwell have reformed, and will be bringing their headline world tour to Coventry's Ricoh Arena.

But 'Posh Spice' Victoria Beckham will not be heading out the tour.

A statement released by the group said: “We are beyond excited to be reuniting next year for a stadium tour.

"Bringing girl power and our message of friendship and love back to the stage feels more relevant than ever.

"We hope everyone can join us for one big Spice Girls party."
