The Sun reports that a round of secret talks took place - it actually sounds like some global trade agreement - with Victoria Beckham being the hold-out. The return will happen in 2018. The Spice Girls are reuniting for a compilation album and a TV special in 2018. To achieve the consent of Victoria was the most hard, this was all connected, - said the source.

Geri Horner recently spoke about walking away from Spice Girls reunion project called GEM last year after working on a side-project to celebrate 20 years of the Spice Girls with former bandmates Emma Bunton and Mel B.

It is believed that the girls have grown closer after Mel B's tumultuous divorce with Stephen Balafonte, as well as the birth of Geri's son Monty.

It looks like both have had a change of heart, with Mel said to be the one who has brought about these new plans.

Beckham has always been rumoured as one of the last hold-outs to a reunion, but the aide claims the birth of ex-Ginger Spice Geri Halliwell's son, and the fallout of Melanie Brown's divorce, have acted as reuniting factors.

She added: "The group last performed together as a five-piece at the 2012 Olympics closing ceremony".

Fans of the girl group have expressed their excitement on Twitter.
