Victoria Beckham will not be reuniting with the Spice Girls at Glastonbury next year.
Reports had claimed that all five members of the ‘Wannabe’ group were set to reunite for a headline slot at the Worthy Farm festival in 2024 to mark the group’s 30th anniversary but a source close to Posh Spice insists that she would prefer to focus on her fashion label.
However, Victoria, 49, has not ruled out a separate ‘celebratory appearance’ with bandmates Geri Horner, Mel B, Melanie C and Emma Bunton although she is not necessarily going to sing.
An insider told the Mail on Sunday newspaper: “Glastonbury is possibly the coolest gig on the planet but Victoria won’t be doing it next year.
“She has carved herself a career as a fashion designer that she has put blood, sweat and tears into, so singing is something she has to carefully consider.
“She has sadly been hugely ridiculed when she has sung in the past.
“She is a different person now. She looks back fondly on her years in the Spice Girls – they were very special for her – so she hasn’t ruled out a celebration, maybe, at some point.
“And Glastonbury are not at all keen on having the group without Posh, it just doesn’t have the same pull.”
Victoria is due to take part in a documentary made by ‘Star Wars’ director J.J. Abrams that will tell the story of the group’s rise to fame in the 1990s and will feature interviews and unseen material from their personal archives.
The star did not join the Spice Girls on their UK tour in 2019 and confessed that her choice not to take part required a lot of “courage”.
Victoria told Vogue: “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.”
