The former girl group, the Spice Girls, have unfortunately been tempted out of retirement by the promise of £10 million each for a 25-date 'farewell' tour.
Their egos will be further enhanced by the fact that their record label, Virgin, will organize private jets to take each one of them round the world. Presumably Virgin thinks that they are far too valuable a commodity to risk flying them all in the same plane and to hell with the pollution.
Baby, Ginger, Posh, Scary and Sporty bombarded the pop world with a number of singles and albums of exceptional mediocrity between 1994 and 2001 when they split up.
However, they feel that their original nicknames are no longer suitable - after all they're all 13 years older than when they first got together. So for the farewell tour they will be known as Old, Anorexic, Fat, Twee and Gobby.
