I loathe you Gary Barlow. Those are strong sentiments for this tender hour of a Monday morningm, but I do. Why in the name of Jaysis have you asked the Spice Girls to reform for the Queen's Diamond Jibbly thingy? Now I'll have to wade through all these "Are They?!" "Aren't They?!!" "Maybe They Are??!!!" stories until bleedin' June 4th.

Of course it was Mel B(labbermouth Spice) who got the ball rolling during her appearance during some Australian TV show or other. When she was asked when she reckoned the Spice Girls would reform (again) at the Oylmpics Opening doodah, she (eloquently) cooed: "Oooh, I think the Queen's Juilee concert is the event I'd be looking at more cloesly for that to happen."

After she "blabbed" that on TV, she said backstage: ""I am going to be in such strife for saying that. It's all so totally bloody top-secret still... I'm always down for a Spice Girls reunion. I love the Scary hair and platforms. Any time of day or night I'll be there." As would Geri Halliwell, Emma Bunton and Mel C. I'm missing someone aren't I. Someone who'd rather die than partake in a Spice Girl's renunion now that she's been somewhat taken under the emaciated wing of the frosty fashion world. Quelle surprise.

Someone spilling to The Sunday Mirror came across with this: "All the girls are desperate for some Spice action except Posh who is simply too busy - she loves the girls and wants to support them and the fans but doesn't see how she has the time when her fashion business is so successful... She has a very small team that she is hands-on with all day, every day. Every spare minute she has is spent with her children."

Not to worry, Gary (who's apparently organising the event), I'm sure Robbie Williams wouldn't turn down the oppertunity to pour himself into an LBD and a pobbed wig.
