SPICE GIRLS star MELANIE CHISHOLM has laughed off ongoing reports the members of the pop supergroup have all fallen out, insisting the quintet are closer than ever.
Sporty Spice claims the group tried to complete their recent reunion tour as planned, but motherhood and other commitments got in the way and led to the reformed Wannabe stars ending the trek prematurely.
But she insists it had nothing to do with a rumoured band feud.
In a new RollingStone.com interview, Mel C says, “All of us have really enjoyed getting closer again.
“The whole atmosphere on the tour (was) very fun and there hasn’t been time for any bickering or the fighting that’s always reported about the Spice Girls.
“It’s just like a big family. There’s been more laughing than anything else.”
And, thanks to the reunion, which began last year (07) and continued into 2008, Mel C insists the Spice Girls will always have a special bond: “We’ve been through something so unique together that even if we don’t see each other for a few months, we get together and it’s been like no time has passed at all.”
And, though she rules out any future recording plans with her old bandmates, the British singer can’t help thinking that there could be more Spice Girls live dates.
She adds, “If you had asked me maybe six months ago, if the Spice Girls would ever tour again, I probably would’ve said no.
“So I think it’s quite dangerous to say defiantly yes or no. You never know what the future holds.”
