Victoria Beckham has said it took “a lot of courage” for her to say ‘no’ to the Spice Girls reunion.
The rest of the Girl Power group – Mel C, Mel B, Emma Bunton and Geri Horner – got back together for a stadium tour earlier this year but Beckham turned down the chance to join them.
According to the Daily Mail, she has now opened up about her decision in an interview with Vogue Germany, insisting: “Saying no requires courage...
“For example, it took me a lot of courage not to go on tour with the Spice Girls again, but to be the one who says, ‘You know, I'm not doing it because things feel different now than they used to. I'd rather concentrate on my family and my company’.”
When the tour was announced last year the Spice Girl-turned-designer said she wished her old bandmates well on the road.
“Being in the Spice Girls was a hugely important part of my life and I wish my girls so much love and fun as they go back on tour,” she said in a statement.

Beckham might get another chance to rejoin the girls on stage if the Spice Girls tour again.
During their final show at London’s Wembley Stadium, Mel B hinted that the group would take their show to Australia next year.
However, she later admitted that she had announced it “without everybody else signing off 100 percent”.
Earlier this week it was reported that Horner is reluctant to continue touring.
