Mel C has said all of the Spice Girls want to perform at Glastonbury 2024.

The Wannabe singers have long been rumoured to be planning to reunite for a one off performance at the music festival but fans were disappointed yet again this year when it did not happen.

But Sporty Spice Melanie Chisolm told BBC 6 Music: "All of the Spice Girls would like to play Glasto, that is the truth.

"Like I said to the audience [on Saturday night], doing a couple of Spice Girls songs, 'a bit of a warm-up for next year?'

"They're rehearsed, they know the words, they're ready. So, if I can drag the other girls along... I say 'drag' the other girls along - all of the Spice Girls would like to play Glasto, that is the truth.

"It's just getting it together, the timing being right."

She added: "And it's quite daunting, some of the girls haven't been up on stage for years.

"But I think it's, we call it [playing Glastonbury] the bucket list, because as an artist it really is the ultimate."

Victoria Beckham has not performed with the band since the closing ceremony of the Olympic Games in London in 2012.

Mel C appeared on the Avalon Stage at this year's festival, performing solo music and some of Spice Girls hits.

Sporty is a regular performer at the Worthy Farm music event in Somerset and she and bandmate Mel B have hinted for years that the girl band would appear at Glastonbury one day.

Mel B, Mel C, Beckham, Emma Bunton and Geri Horner all reunited in 2007 for a string of shows: The Return of the Spice Girls Tour. It ran for 45 shows from December 2007 to February 2008, including a 17-night sellout run at the O2 arena.

But when the band went on tour in 2019 Beckham did not make an appearance.

In October 2022 Beckham ruled out reuniting with the Spice Girls to perform at Glastonbury.

The fashion designer told US show Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen: "I love the girls. I really, really enjoy singing Spice Girls when I’m doing karaoke, but I think I’d better leave it there.”

Earlier this year Mel C admitted how disappointed she was, saying: "It’s the question I hate the most, because the answer is as disappointing to me as it is to Spice Girls fans. We would love to do Glasto. It just doesn’t fit with the current plan with the girls. We do want to get back on stage – everything is up in the air.”
