News of the Spice Girls' 20th anniversary reunion has gone from bad to worse, with the latest reports suggesting that the whole thing may not happen.

Last week, Mel B broke the news that the reunion - which was due to happen this year, to mark the 20th anniversary of their debut single 'Wannabe' - has now been pushed back to 2017.

However, recent reports in The Mirror over the weekend now suggest that the whole thing might not happen at all, because they're not keen to push on with only three of the five members on board.

It seems that the stumbling block is Victoria Beckham's participation. The fashion designer has said she has no wish to tour again, while Sporty Spice aka Melanie C has said she'll only take part if all five members are participating and talks last week to convince her otherwise were not fruitful.

With Beckham so deeply ingrained in the fashion industry after leaving her pop past behind, it seems unlikely that she'll willingly return to Camp Spice.

The last time all five members appeared together was at the closing ceremony of the London 2012 Olympics.
