Victoria Beckham has reportedly invited Mel C to perform at her and husband David’s extravagant New Year’s Eve party in the Maldives.

We guess our invite got lost in the post then…

According to reports, David and Victoria, along with their children Brooklyn, Romeo, Cruz and Harper, will be ringing in 2017 in style, with an intimate gathering on the exotic island.

As well as special guests (and BFFs) Gordon and Tana Ramsay, Mel C – who refused to reunite with Geri Halliwell, Emma Bunton and Mel B for the Spice Girls 20th anniversary reunion – is also set to attend the star-studded soiree as she’s been hired as the entertainment for the night.

A source told The Sun: “Victoria has been the instigator for the whole trip. She’s sorted all the accommodation for both families and ensured Mel is there to perform.

“They’ve always been great pals, but have got closer over the past few months due to their shared stance on the Spice Girls comeback.”

Mel, who will be staying at the exclusive Amilla Fushi resort with boyfriend Joe Marshall and daughter Scarlet Starr, previously turned down the opportunity to join newly-named three-piece ‘GEM’ for a reunion in August of this year.

She said at the time: “For me the absolute pinnacle of my Spice existence was being watched by a billion people around the globe belting out Spice up Your Life on top of a black cab at the 2012 London Olympics.

“Anything less than the full line-up just didn’t feel like we’d be doing justice to the band or the fans.”

The Spice Girls last performed together at the closing ceremony of the Olympic Games in 2012, so now we’re obviously holding out hope for a Posh and Sporty duet before 2016 is over, especially since the original Spice Girls reunion is still very much up in the air.
