Who’d have thought Britain’s best hopes for Eurovision lay in the hands of three middle-aged mums who haven’t belted out a decent song for 20 years?

Yep, in case you hadn’t heard, the Spice Girls are BACK – or at least, the three of them who haven’t got anything better to do are back – and fans reckon a leaked new song called ‘Song For Her’ clocks in at EXACTLY three minutes for a very good reason.

You see, apparently all Eurovision entries are required to fade out if they hit the the three minute mark – presumably in a bid to prevent any lasting damage to listeners eardrums. So Spice Girls fans on Twitter have put two and two together and figured out that Geri, Emma and Mel have their sights set on Eurovision glory! Hurrah!

In case you hadn’t heard, Geri Horner, Emma Bunton and Melanie Brown have been working together under the name GEM in the studio for a few months now. They’re also planning a new BBC talent show to rope in replacements for Posh and Sporty ahead of a comeback tour, and have even managed to record a few songs in the process.

But what about the other two? Well, 41-year-old Mel B didn’t mince her words when James Cordon asked her why the band was having to search for two new members a few months ago. Asked why Victoria Beckham and Melanie C weren’t keen, she barked: ““Because the other two bitches didn’t want to do it.” Oooh!

After quickly realising her gaffe, she elaborated a little: “No, let me correct that — my other two fellow lovely ladies. You know, Victoria is busy with her great fashion line. Mel C is doing her own album.

“They gracefully said, ‘you three go ahead and do it’. We are girl power and we support each other so us three went, OK, well then let’s us three do it.

“I don’t think we could ever replace Sporty or Posh, but I would like to invite some people up on stage with us.”

Emma Bunton has since downplayed the leaked track, claiming that it’s all just studio noodling that just somehow escaped – but fans don’t seem very convinced.

“Listen the thing is – this is not a single, it’s just that we’re creating, having fun in the studio. It’s just a demo and somehow it has got out there,” she said.

Still, with the UK failing to register a single Eurovision win since 1997, we reckon an injection of Girl Power is exactly what the contest needs.
