Hollywood Gossip: Spice Girls to reunite without Victoria?
The Spice Girls are reportedly reforming for a world tour next year - without Victoria Beckham.
The 'Spice Up Your Life' hitmakers celebrate 20 years since the release of their first single 'Wannabe' next year and reportedly plan to mark the occasion with a global concert series, but the fashion designer will not be joining Emma Bunton, Mel C, Geri Halliwell and Mel B on stage.
A source said: "This will be one of the biggest pop reunions of all time.
"There is a huge demand for the Spice Girls to get back together, especially with the nostalgia around the two-decade anniversary of their first release next summer.
"Mel B flew into London last month to secretly agree the plan with the other three girls. They should each make more than ten million pounds from this."
Victoria - who took part in the group's 2007-2008 reunion tour and their appearance at the London Olympics closing ceremony three years ago - still has the option to take part but insists she is too busy.
The source added to The Sun newspaper: "Victoria wishes the girls the best of luck.
"She is far too busy running her fashion brand and looking after her family to get back on a stage.
"She also feels that they left the stage on an amazing high with their Olympics performance and worries a reunion could tarnish their legacy."
Initially the group were reluctant to commit to anything without the 40-year-old star, but realised time was running out for a reunion if they didn't agree it soon.
The insider said: "For a long time they put off the idea of working any projects without her because they wanted to stay as a five-piece, but with the 20th anniversary coming up they realised it was a case of now or never."
The quartet are expected to begin negotiations with tour promoters and choose their new management team in the coming weeks.
The source said: "It will be the four girls who are making the calls about this. There is a lot to work out in terms of their schedules and priorities, but they want to be in control.
"Talks between them are continuing and there are likely to be some official decisions made when they back from their summer holidays in September or October."

Zayn Malik ended engagement with text message
Zayn Malik reportedly ended his engagement with his fiancée of two years, Perrie Edwards, by sending her a text message.
The former One Direction star reportedly told his fiancée of two years, Perrie Edwards, it was over by sending her a message two weeks ago and hasn't been in touch since.
A source said: "It's unbelievable, he's an immature little boy with no thought for anyone else's feelings. Perrie is one of the sweetest girls in the world and she's stood by him through thick and thin.
"But he ended their engagement with one text message and in the two weeks since there's been complete radio silence between them. Who does that? She's devastated, which everyone understands, but is doing her best to focus on work and to put on a brave face in public."
And now the pair are said to be squabbling over the recent purchase of their £3 million home.
The insider added to The Sun newspaper: "This was the house where Perrie expected to marry Zayn and act as his wife for the rest of their lives. It was their dream home and he went through with the purchase only a few weeks ago. They bought the house from a Premier League footballer and both loved it.
"It's understandable that Perrie feels confused and led on. He must have already been having doubts about the relationship. This was a very serious, major financial purchase. She thought Zayn was committing to their long-term future."
Taylor Swift vs Katy Perry, the latest
Taylor Swift has insisted she has "no interest" in making up with Katy Perry because the 'Dark Horse' hitmaker "betrayed" her so badly.
The 'Blank Space' hitmaker has insisted she has no plans to build a bridge between her and the 'Dark Horse' singer because she "betrayed" her so badly.
Appearing to address the feud, she told Vanity Fair magazine: "I've trusted people before in friendships or relationships and have felt betrayed.
"If you betray your friend, if you will talk about them badly behind their back, if you will try to humiliate them or talk down to them, I have no interest in having a person like that in my life."
Meanwhile, the 25-year-old beauty previously revealed a few details about how the pair's friendship turned sour.
She said: "She did something so horrible. I was like, 'Oh, we're just straight-up enemies.'
"And it wasn't even about a guy! It had to do with business. She basically tried to sabotage an entire arena tour. She tried to hire a bunch of people out from under me."
However, their friendship didn't used to be so bitter.
In 2009, Taylor tweeted: "Watching the Waking up in Vegas video. I love Katy Perry. I think I'm going to hang her poster on my wall now."
With the 30-year-old star quickly replying to say: "@taylorswift13 You're as sweet as pie! Let's write a song together about the subject we know best... for my new record. It'll be brilliant (sic)"

Speaking to reporters outside the church, she said of Pat Houston, Whitney's sister: "It's not over. We've got evidence of who Pat really is, this is going to be a long drawn out process. Things are connected. Pat is a fraud and a phoney. She is not a Houston, she's a Garland.
"She will be remembered in our hearts forever. It's so sad that this has happened to her. I'm angry at Nick [Gordon; Bobbi Kristina's boyfriend], I am angry at what happened. It was all fine until Pat started speaking."
Gwen Stefani files for divorce?
Gwen Stefani has reportedly filed for divorce from her husband of 13-years, Gavin Rossdale.
The 'Hollaback Girl' is believed to have requested for her 13-year marriage to Gavin Rossdale to be officially ended, citing irreconcilable differences.
The couple are asking for joint custody of their three children, nine-year-old Kingston, six-year-old Zuma and 17-month-old Apollo, gossip website TMZ reports.
The news may shock fans as Gwen previously admitted she thinks "it's a miracle" they are still together because she thought she was out of his league when he was younger.
She said: "We go through so much together - it's a miracle that we could stay together this long.
"I don't know if I was a nerd in high school, but I definitely wasn't the super-cute cheerleader so I never saw myself getting somebody like that. But I do think he's quite handsome. It's not the most important thing about him, but it is nice - and he makes really cute babies!"
And Gwen also cited spending time apart as a good thing for the pair's relationship.
She explained: "[Gavin's] on a short tour right now, and he wrote me the sweetest note this morning. It's good to have those days when we both do our own things.
"I think that's what keeps relationships going, when both people can be themselves and have their own individuality. That's especially important for women. It's hard to find time for yourself."

Speaking of their $15 million home in Berkshire, England, which has undergone extensive renovations, the insider added: "The building plans include a nursery. They hope to have all the work done by Christmas."
And Amal must have convinced George now was the right time after he previously admitted having children wasn't "high on his list" of priorities.
He said: "I mean, I've thought about it, I suppose. But I haven't really - it hasn't been high on my list of ... I've been asked it a lot lately because I've gotten married and I'm doing a movie with kids in it ..."
