Mel C says Victoria Beckham is ‘petrified’ of performing with the Spice Girls and confirms she won’t appear on the tour
MEL C has revealed Victoria Beckham is "petrified" of performing with the Spice Girls.
The singer – AKA Sporty Spice – confirmed that Victoria won't appear on their upcoming tour because of her stage fright.
Speaking on Out to Lunch with Jay Rayner, she said: "We are all in a different place but a good place.
"We are all sad that Victoria won't be joining us but it is all genuinely very supportive.
"We didn't (work hard on her) we knew already. The Olympics was hard for her.
"She's moved on and her life has changed. She just doesn't have that love of performing.
"And, in fact, it completely petrifies her.
"I think there are many reasons. She's extremely successful and busy and has put her heart into her business and to step away from that and not give it the time she does at the moment would be difficult.
"And I'm sure if she felt passionate about being on stage and loved it, then she'd be there. We are all very sensitive of that and we understand that."
Elsewhere on the upcoming tour, Geri Horner has hired a voice coach to ensure her singing is note perfect.
Ginger Spice, 46, is said to be “taking no chances” of being shown up on stage.
The group start rehearsals next month for their 13-date tour, which kicks off on May 24.
An insider said: “Geri is anxious to make sure she is up to standard when the girls get back together — she doesn’t want to be humiliated, so she has hired a singing instructor.
“The girls are all aware the scrutiny is going to be pretty intense, but Geri is the only one who has gone to these lengths.
“She doesn’t want to be the one people point the finger at if it isn’t note perfect.
It comes after a furious Geri hit out at claims by Scary Spice Mel B, 43, that the pair had sex during the group’s early days.
Mel has also said Posh Spice, 44, snubbed the reunion as she is “petrified” of performing again.
