It looks like the Spice Girls will reunite for Queen Elizabeth's upcoming Diamond Jubilee, which marks 60 years of her reign. Melanie Brown – a/k/a Mel B, or "Scary" Spice – dropped a major hint to that effect during a recent appearance on Australian television.
The Spice Girls, one of the biggest pop phenomena of the Nineties, were previously rumored to be reuniting for the 2012 London Olympics. According to one source, Brown fretted about revealing the group's plans after the TV appearance, telling crew members, "I am going to be in such strife for saying that. It's all so totally bloody top-secret still."
On camera, however, she seemed eager for the reunion. "For me to get my Scary hair on and my big platforms – any time of day," she said. "I'm a Spice Girl through and through." Watch the video of her appearance below. The Spice Girls news comes near the end of the segment.
