The seven members of the group agreed to the comeback, which was masterminded by music mogul Simon Fuller, the man who brought them together in 1998 after the Spice Girls, their previous band, fired him as their manager.
He called each of the seven stars: Rachel Stevens, 44, Tina Barrett, 46, Jon Lee, 40, Paul Cattermole, 45, Bradley McIntosh, 41, Jo O’Meara, 43 and Hannah Spearritt, 40 in person to suggest the project and made it clear that it would only work if everyone agreed.
Their return is expected to be announced with much fanfare in the coming weeks, where they will reveal the details of the reunion.
They are planning a big tour for the summer, although they are debating whether they will have to postpone it until Christmas due to O’Meara’s back injury which has led her to undergo four operations to remove part of a herniated disc.
