Discussing with Billboard the band's future plans, Simon mentioned: "What's coming next is that we are going to be doing lots of exciting things. We'll be making an animated movie and there's lots of exciting plans to come."

He also admitted that he "expected" the sell-out success of The Spice Girls comeback tour, adding: "To be honest with you, while it was clearly phenomenal, they are such an awesome phenomenon I expected it.

"The last tour we did seven or eight years ago the demand was equal, if not maybe even more.

"It's a global phenomenon. They're more timely now than ever and it's fantastic. I'm so happy for the girls. They deserve it."

Emma Bunton/Baby Spice has previously teased an animation project featuring the girls, which would include their likeliness in a superhero narrative where they all had special powers.

"It's something that we're talking about," she revealed. "The opportunities we get given, it's amazing. There is so much excitement, it's just about making sure it's the right thing."
