Hopes that the musical, Viva Forever! would feature a narrative detailing the girls' struggles to overcome oppression have been dashed. Sadly they weren't oppressed enough as children. However hopes that it will feature a flimsy story line with tenuous links to all their hits look to have been realised.
Jennifer Saunders has written the story, bizarrely. Despite the presence of a bona fide comedy legend, the book is to follow the formula that was so successful for Mamma Mia! Oh well. It won't even feature Pierce Brosnan singing, to give us some unintentional hilarity.
We were hoping to learn more about why Posh Spice looks so sad. Did she lose her favourite teddy when she was young? Did she escape poverty and persecution? Or was it Hertfordshire?
And what happened to the Other One? Sporty Spice has now become hotter than the other Spice Girls, when she used to be invisible. Clearly there is a lesson there somewhere. We just don’t know what it might be. Pay attention, possibly.
Melanie Chisholm, if we must give her a real name, did tell the Daily Mail that she hoped the Spice Girls would be involved in the Olympics in some capacity. Posh doesn't fancy singing, for obvious reasons, and there's too many of them for the relay. Trampoline, anyone?
