Spice Girl Auditions: Who Should Replace Victoria Beckham And Mel C?

​Apparently, this is your chance to join the line-up


It might all be poppycock and balderdash, but news sources have been reporting today that what remains of the Spice Girls - Geri Halliwell (now Horner), Mel B and Emma Bunton - are searching for two new faces, to replace Victoria Beckham and Mel C.

While Posh Spice's reluctance to re-join the band that ruled the 90s has been well documented, Mel C's defection has been a more recent event.


Apparently she decided back in April that she'd had enough spicing up of her life and was heading for simpler pleasures than snappy tracksuits and high-kicks. 

So, in the event that the remaining Spices *are* looking for new recruits, we thought we'd offer our advice on potential fantasy line-ups. 

After a quick straw poll around the ELLE office, suggestions have come in the form of:


Nicole Scherzinger  - a.k.a. Enthusiastic Spice

A little bit shrill, perhaps, but boy would she give it some welly.

Helen Mirren - a.k.a. Dame Spice

A more refined spice, for sophisticated tastes.


Joan Collins - a. k. a. Dynasty Spice / Disdainful Spice

Geri, those pvc thigh-highs have got to go. Now.

Emma Watson - a.k.a. Feminist Spice

Putting the 'girl power' back into girl bands.

Angela Merkel - a.k.a. Angela Merkel Spice

In true Germanic form, this spice is straight down the line; does what it says on the tin.

But really, if we're being utterly honest with ourselves, in place of a Spice Girls reunion we'd really rather see a revival of the Dawn French, Jennifer Saunders and Cathy Burke 'Sugar Lumps' line-up.
