Emma Updates Her Blog
On Emma's official site, she has posted a new blog:

Hi yall,

Im sorry Im only just sending you this new blog, but you wont believe how busy weve been. Were rehearsing our bottoms off every day for the show. Its been so exciting being back on stage with the girls and performing all our classics!

At this very moment Im practicing the routines in my heels and Ive got the most painful blisters. But youre all worth it! : )

Our only day off so far was Thanksgiving, and we spent a beautiful day at Victorias house with lots of delicious food and wine and celebrated with our friends and families.

Beau is being the best little boy in the world, and weve got him some little ear protectors so he can watch rehearsals. As soon as he heard Wannabe he started dancing by kicking his little legs around! He is just so gorgeous.

I really cant wait for you guys to see the show. I hope you enjoy it. Not long to go now

See you soon.

Lots of love

Emma xx

David Beckham Banned From Vancouver Show
Victoria has banned David from seeing the Girls on opening night because she is too nervous. David said:
"One minute Victoria is saying she wants me there and then it's, 'No, don't come to the first show, as we'll all be too nervous.' But I think I'll be at the show a couple of days later in San Jose and have the boys with me. And I know Victoria will ring me as soon as the first show ends."

Spice Kids Contract Chicken Pox
Victoria's son, Cruz, has apparently given Geri's daughter, Bluebell, the chicken pox. If an adult gets chicken pox, it can cause shingles, which could keep the band sick for weeks. Geri sent Bluebell home to the UK. A source commented:
"Chicken pox is very contagious and when Geri noticed the spots on Bluebell she panicked and warned the rest of the girls."

Mel B's Message To Fans
Mel B commented on her second place finish on Dancing With The Stars on the Spice Girls' Website:
A Personal Message From Mel B


I just wanted to say a massive THANK YOU to all of you Spice fans who voted for me and Maks on Dancing With The Stars.

I didn't ever think we'd make it this far! I've had an absolute blast and the girls coming to the show on Monday night was just amazing. Well done to Helio for winning (Grrrr...just kidding, ha ha ha!)

Your support over the last few weeks has been incredible. I'm back in Spice rehearsals today as we're putting the finishes touches to the show. It's going to be AWESOME.

You lot rock. See you on tour!!!

New Geri Spice Blog
Geri has made a new post over at the Spice Blog. It reads:
Geri writes from inside the Spice Tour bubble

Hi there,

So it's 10.30pm and I got home half an hour ago. We just did a run through of the show; it's feeling really good. It's hard to tell u without giving too much away... but Simon Fuller, our manager, came down and he was blown away. I think we might surprise a few people. Actually, I never thought I'd say this (because I wasn't part of the group when it was conceived so it was hard to be objective) but Holler is white hot. That's all I'm saying otherwise the girls will kill me.

Okay, so backstage... it's amazing to see how much goes into making a show - lights, catering, dressers, sounds, engineers, crew - it's like a travelling circus.

I actually feel like I'm in the Spice bubble... we are encapsulated in this world where we are just immersed in each other's lives constantly. Just before the run through of the show this morning, Mel B, Victoria and I even went to the loo together... in separate cubicles, obviously!

But of course... there's also my daughter Bluebell. She loves hanging with the Beckham boys. Cruz and Bluebell have play dates, and Romeo - well, he is just gorgeous with her. Actually, it was a beautiful moment when we were rehearsing the other day and all of our kids were playing on the stage at the same time. It made me smile.

As you probably know, Mel B was in the live final of Dancing With The Stars and we surprised her on Monday down at the show. She was so shocked, it's the first time we've ever seen her quiet! She was with us in rehearsals yesterday morning and then went to the studio in evening for the results show. She SO should have won...I'm very disappointed. But we are all so incredibly proud of her. You're a winner to us Mel!

Okay, I have to go to bed in a bit as we are working really hard on the show and I need to get some rest. If you have a ticket for the tour, you really are in for a treat. Get ready to party!

Big X

Mel B Gets 2nd Place On Dancing With The Stars
Melanie B finished in 2nd place on the finale of Dancing with the Stars (US). Mel and Maks lost the championship to Helio Castroneves & Julianne Hough, even though Mel B & Maksim Chmerkovskiy had the highest technical score from the judges for the season (85 vs. 84 for Helio/Julianne) and also the higher judging score from the combined final two nights of competition.

Reminds me of the 2000 presidential race. She was totally robbed. She is the better dancer, and I think this was an unfortunate case of, dare I say it, white america going for the cute blonde girl, who is a bitch by the way (according to my inside sources).

Spice Girls Surprise Mel B
The Spice Girls surprised Melanie B by showing up to yesterday's Dancing with the Stars taping. From the Spice Girls' official site:

The Girls stopped by Mel's trailer minutes before the start of the show to wish her luck before taking their place in the audience to support Mel and Maksim in the final.

The first dance was the judges' choice, and Mel B scored an excellent 28 with her Cha Cha Cha. This was followed by the freestyle, where Mel scored an impressive 27 points. Geri was less than impressed with some of judge Carrie-Anne Inaba's comments, leading the rest of the Spice Girls in a chorus of boos.

Thanks EmilyStrange & Nick R.

Fake E-Mail Claimed Argentina Cancellation
A fake email was sent to a great many people in Argentina, presumably on the Spice Girls mailing list, over the weekend claiming that the girls' Buenos Aires concert has been cancelled. The fake email read:
Hi there!

First of all, we would like to thank all our fans who bought our Greatest Hist Album, it's doing great! As you know, the demand for our concert tickets in the USA and the UK has been really overwhelming. So, in order to meet that demand, it’s not possible for us to keep extending the tour because of our solo projects and family obligations. That means we are unable to hold a concert in Buenos Aires, Argentina. We're incredibly sorry for the delay in making this announcement, but we have been really trying to fit this date in our schedule.

To make this up for you all, we’ll be having some great competitions for our South American fans. The lucky winners will attend one of our London shows (flight and accomodation included!) and will receive an All Access Pass! Isn’t that MAJOR?

Keep checking thespicegirls.com for news on rehearsals and exclusive contents!

Best Wishes

Emma, Geri, Mel B, Melanie C, and Victoria


Several websites ran with the story! So the Spice Girls camp released the following statement:
"The Spice Girls would like to make it clear that they have not cancelled their Buenos Aires show. A story has appeared on several websites that includes a fake email and competition from the girls. The fake e-mail claims that due to the demand so far in the UK and the US this show is going to be cancelled. The email goes onto say that they will be running some competitions for their South American fans to travel to the UK to watch a show. This is not the case and this email is 100% unofficial and has nothing to do with the Spice Girls."

Dancing With The Stars Affecting Spice Girls Tour
-= Rumor Warning =-

Melanie B's commitment to Dancing with the Stars is getting in the way of practice for the Spice Girls' reunion tour. A source says:

"The opening night is days away yet there hasn't been much time for rehearsals. A lot of Mel's time has been taken up with preparations for each Dancing with the Stars [show]. The girls are really proud of her but at the same time they're worried that Mel will give her all to the dance show and be exhausted for the start of the tour. Rehearsal time has been cut down a great deal because of Mel's commitments to the TV show. It's not ideal."

There will be a new third-party documentary called The Birth of the Spice Girls, which will feature rare and some supposedly previously unseen footage of the girls, including rehearsals filmed two years before Wannabe.

Clare Hollywood, Living's head of commissioning, said:

"The Spice Girls are simply the biggest girl band ever, so we are thrilled to have secured this rare and previously unseen footage. The show will be a fascinating sneak peak into the early years, before the PR machine and stylists had their way."

Mel B On Cover Of TV Guide
Scary Spice is on the cover of the current issue of TV Guide (US). Mel says:

"I’ve really toned up. The funny thing is my bum has gotten bigger, I think because of all of the dancing. [I learn the dances by] mimicking the finer points. I'll look at the way they [dancers] place their hands and say: 'Oh, I must remember to do that'."
Her dance partner Maksim Chmerkovskiy says:

"One of her dressers for the Spice Girls was checking her measurements and said: 'This can't be right. Somebody must have measured wrong.' All the measurements were too big."
Dancing with the Stars judge Len Goodman says that Mel B is strong, but is concerned that her time spent practicing with the Spice Girls may affect her performance:

"Her strength is that she's equally good in Ballroom and Latin. Her weakness is that she does the least practice of all the couples. She can't do six hours a week and pull it off."

New Melanie C Spice Blog
Mel C has made a new post over at the Spice Blog. It includes a cute picture of her and reads:

Melanie C on rehearsing, performing and nerves

Whoop whoop whoop! Wassuuup?!

Listen to me going all LA! You are not going to believe it, the show is going to be phenomenal!

Things are getting really exciting now as we get closer to the first gig. We've started running the show and after this tour I reckon we'll all be fit enough to run a marathon. It's hardcore, even for Sporty Spice!

Last week we performed at the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show. It went brilliantly and was well scary. It was the first time we'd performed together since 1998! The response was overwhelming.

The crowd were cheering so loudly when we came on stage, I had to hold back the tears. My legs went all stiff and at one point if I hadn't been standing next to Emma I would've fallen over! Not a good look.

We had loads of fun in our 1940s army outfits and vintage Cavalli for Headlines (Friendship Never Ends). Did you see my hat? I wore it for BBC Children In Need too!

Lovely Seal was there – he sang with his missus, Heidi Klum. The models were gorgeous and Will.i.am from Black Eyed Peas also performed. So, it was a really top night.

At the crack of dawn the next day we were up to chat with our Terry (Wogan) for BBC Children In Need. It was weird watching the show from Melanie's Dancing With The Stars set. We all felt a little homesick.

Melanie is still doing an amazing job on Dancing With The Stars; we surprised her with a little visit. She truly is a superwoman and we are very, very proud.

Thank you to everybody who's bought the single, it's for a great cause.

Take care and be lucky

We've had a busy week with the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show and also BBC Children In Need but it was such an amazing feeling be back on stage together again. Thanks to all of the fans who made it down to the CBS Studios for the Children In Need performance, it was GREAT to have so many of you in the audience.

Mel C said:
"Surreal but fantastic too. It feels like no time at all has passed since we were last on stage together. We set ourselves a challenge to put together the best pop show by a British act ever. It's a celebration of the past but it's also about now."
"It was just like the old days, only better."
"We couldn't believe the reaction. It's made us even more excited about the tour. We feel more mature. We're having fun and we're really appreciating what we're doing this time around. Before, we were so busy and a lot younger. We couldn’t really appreciate what we had. We're very, very lucky to be given a second chance."

Geri On Spice Reunion
Here is some more info from Geri's interview on Sydney, Australia's Kyle and Jackie O radio program (Story). Geri said:

"We knew that the record company wanted to release the album. They were going to do it earlier this year and we thought 'We really want to support this in some way'. I remember I’d been hanging out with Emma and Victoria a little bit and we thought maybe we could do a documentary or something small because everyone has such different commitments in their life. I think it was at Bluebell, my daughter’s christening. There were four of us there and we had such a good time together. I remember the next morning I rung up Emma and just went to her 'Do you know what? I wanna be a Spice Girl!' She started laughing and said 'So did she!' So slowly we would ask each girl. Then Melanie B came from LA, and she was totally up for it. Victoria said she was up for it but wanted to make sure it was all five. So we just had to get Mel C, so it took a while but it was like negotiating a wedding or something."

Maks On Mel B
Melanie B's Dancing with the Stars partner Maksim Chmerkovskiy recently spoke about working with Mel B, saying:

"Her practice schedule is 10am to 7pm with the Spice Girls, no breaks, and then she's practicing with me from 7 to probably 7.45! (teasing) It is very difficult, but we're doing it. We don't practice nearly as much as the other celebrities and maybe we should! Mel is by far the best dancer in this competition, no question. Helio Castroneves can try and come close because he's a guy and he can just stand there and have Julianne [Hough] do her thing around him. I'm not hating! I think he's developing and improving and everything else but in the end, he isn't Mel. I am like her therapist! We're just happy. Confidence is for people who are nervous. We're not nervous so we don't need to be confident, we just do it. We don't compete, we just perform. Whatever the audience and the fans think, that's great. If we come back, great, if not, that's fine too."
Good attitude!

Phew, that's more like it.

Victoria on Ugly Betty, Victoria's Secret & Children In Need

Hi everyone,

I'm currently sat in our rehearsal studio and I am about to have another fitting with the Cavalli team for our costumes. The other girls will kill me if I give anything away and I don't want to ruin any surprises... but they look amazing! Roberto and his team have done us proud.

Rehearsals are going really well, I can't believe that there are only a few weeks until the first show in Vancouver. It's really scary but exciting at the same time. David and the boys have been laughing at me because I've been wandering around the house listening to my iPod and practising the routines. We are including some parts of the old routines but bringing them up to date a bit.

All of the kids have been down to rehearsals. We have an area where they all hang out... its a Spice creche! My boys are so excited about the tour, they can't wait and I'm really looking forward to them seeing me up on stage. I just hope I don't get over emotional when I see them!

Ugly Betty was shown over here in the US on Friday, I had such a laugh filming it. If you’re in the UK then you will be able to see the episode on Channel 4 at 9pm on Friday 23 November.

This week is a really busy one for us because not only are we rehearsing for the tour but we are going to be performing at the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show on Thursday. Friday is BBC Children In Need day in the UK and we will performing from LA. We will be doing two songs, our new single Headlines (Friendship Never Ends) and also Stop – which is going to look fantastic. I can’t give too much away but it's definitely going to be worth watching.

We've just had a break for lunch and now we're going to rehearse with our band... and I'm holding things up to write this blog so I'd better go soon!

Finally, a big thank you to everyone who has been out to buy a copy of our Greatest Hits, we hope you enjoy it

Lots of love

Posh Pregnancy Rumors Denied.. Sort Of
Rumors have surfaced that Victoria is pregnant with a fourth child, a girl. This comes from her being allegedly overheard talking about putting in a new nursery in her home, as well as her visits to the baby store Petit Tresor in Brentwood - purchasing a pink blanket and stuffed animal.

A spokeswoman for Victoria & David commented:

"Both David and Victoria have expressed their desire for another baby but at this time they are concentrating on careers and their three boys."

Geri Fighting With George Michael
-= Rumor Warning =-

Geri is fighting with longtime friend George Michael. Geri wanted George to write the Spice Girls' new single, to which the rest of the girls agreed. A source says:

"George was more than happy to write a song. But Geri was frustrated how long he was taking to finish it. She wrote Headlines (Friendship Never Ends) with Emma instead. George was furious. He has been fed up with Geri’s 'Me, me, me’ attitude. She’s still really good mates with his boyfriend, Kenny Goss, who's been acting as a go-between in their battle."

-= Rumor Warning =-

This story reeks of B.S. since Geri said her and Emma started working on "Headlines" before the rest of the girls even came aboard for the reunion, yet this story claims that all the girls gave concent to George Michael writing it and THEN Geri & Emma wrote it.

Mel C On Reunion
Sporty Spice Melanie C has had a couple interviews recently, in which she spoke about the Spice Girls reunion. Mel starts off by talking about how the girls compare to their old selves, as NEWS.com.au reports:

"Mel B isn't as scary as she used to be, she's definitely mellowed somewhat. But she's still very feisty. Ginger is a little bit lighter now, her hair is a little bit more golden. Baby's always going to be the baby, she's the youngest. And Victoria is very posh. This is our final farewell. We wanted an opportunity to get together to really celebrate everything we've achieved and give a great big thank you to our fans. We just want to make this the best pop show that a British band has ever put on."

She told Reuters in a telephone interview:

"We all hoped [the reunion] would be successful, but we're all quite overwhelmed by the actual response. That has just made us more determined to make the show the best show any British pop band has ever put on. For years I always thought I would never go back. It's a very personal thing to me. I had a lot of things to deal with after the Spice Girls, I had a lot of personal issues, and I have been very happy being a solo artist. I had to really think about my decision, but after spending time with the girls and now getting into the show I am so glad this is the decision I had made."
Regarding Thursday's Victoria's Secret Fashion Show, Mel says:

"We're going to be performing one of our old songs and one of our new songs, Headlines, and it's going to be very beautiful. We're hoping to get ourselves into some Victoria's Secret underwear for the show."

America On Victoria
Ugly Betty star America Ferrara spoke a bit about what it was like working with Victoria:

"She was so nice, such a really lovely person. She was just one of the girls. She didn't bring her own make-up people or anything. She definitely came with the right attitude. If you're not willing to be humiliated then you don't belong on our show. She was ready to be humiliated, yes!"
America also avoided calling her by name in fear that she would call her "Posh":

"I avoided it because I didn't know what to call her. I was like, 'Hi... you.'"

Radio 1 Drops Headlines
It appears as though the new Spice Girls single "Headlines (Friendship Never Ends)" is not doing so hot, at last not according to BBC Radio 1, who has dropped the single to their C-list for play time and frequency. George Ergatoudis, Head of Music at Radio 1, says:

"The opinion of the Radio 1 playlist team is that the song isn't strong enough. Clearly there's a huge number of Spice Girls fans out there, look at the tickets they have sold. But 'Headlines' is very disappointing. The song simply isn't strong enough. It would have been a B-side in their heyday."

"Headlines" has sold only 4,900 copies in downloads since being released early last week, debuting at #20 on the UK singles chart, though the CD version of the single does not come out until November 19th.

Bextor Criticizes Headlines video
British Pop Singer Sophie Ellis-Bextor, who has been Victoria Beckham's rival in the past, said the following of the Spice Girls' new video:

"I don't like the video. I don't understand why they're singing in their underwear when they're talking about friendship. It's all about context. I've done advertisements for Monsoon and spreads for men's magazines but they are supposed to be singing about being friends. Why do they have to be in their bra and pants to do that?"

Geri Denies Infighting
Geri recently spoke about tabloid rumors of the Spice Girls fighting. She said:

"That's a load of crap. It's almost a joke. It's pathetic and silly that people choose to write silly things. It's really comical actually, because we've never gotten on better. It's the biggest laugh ever, it's like hanging around with your best buddies. We're just rolling around with laughter the whole time, we lift each other up."

Gordon Ramsay To Prepare Spice Menus
-= Rumor Warning =-

British celebrity chef Gordon Ramsay, who is friends with Victoria, will be preparing menus of food which comply to all the girls' requirements for when the girls are on tour. A source says:

"Victoria and Gordon were larking around with the other Spice Girls and suddenly Mel B joked that Ramsay should step in and sort out their catering options. There had been a few minor disagreements in the band about the type of food the girls wanted. And while Gordon told them he couldn't personally cook for them on a daily basis because of other commitments, he did kindly offer to devise an array of menus suited to their individual requirements, which will be produced on a daily basis by top-notch chefs. He has given it a lot of thought. After all, the Spice Girls are into their own things. Victoria loves simple cuisine, like prawns, Mel B is more of a pasta girl and Mel C likes her veg. Geri is into wholesome organic produce but has several food intolerances while Emma is pretty much into eating anything as long as it is relatively low fat and fresh. So Gordon is creating a menu which combines all of their requirements and he is making sure it is fun while being extremely balanced and nutritious."

She was also asked if she is depressed by Eddie Murphy's behavior, to which she responded:

The Royal Variety Performance takes place on December 3rd, the day after the first date (Vancouver, Canada) of The Spice Girls' world tour, which would make it a bit challenging for the girls to make the variety show. An organizer for the Variety performance (also known as Mr. Obvious) says:

"We've been having talks with them. They are keen, but it's a question of making it work physically."

Geri Posts Spice Blog
Geri posted a blog over at the the official Spice Girls website:

Geri writes this week from rehearsals

Hi, how are u?

So, I am sitting in the rehearsal studio on a lunch break. We've just finished rehearsing Who Do You Think You Are. No, I'm not going to tell you any details. You'll just have to wait and see! It's a lot of fun.

Beau is sitting opposite me on Emma's lap, giving a smile.

We're working hard and it’s like we've never been apart. I really like it when we're singing in harmony with the band. It's funny that ten years on each of us still remembers our harmony lines. It's like riding a bike – you just don’t forget. It's like it's ingrained in us.

What else can I tell you? Cruz has been looking for a pump to blow up his rocket and now he's trying on Melanie C's hoodie.

Melanie C is definitely embracing her Sporty roots today in a fetching pair of tracky bottoms. Looking gorgeous! Actually, that's Bluebell's new favourite word.

Bluebell is on her way down here in a bit. She keeps on picking up a microphone, so it's like the Waltons on tour with babies and husbands all around. Jade (Emma’s partner) is the perfect daddy. I can tell he loves being a father.

I've gotta tell you, it's been the most wonderful experience being back in Spice World. I love being part of a group and I feel this experience has done exactly what I had hoped. It has reunited us and made our friendship stronger. We have a bond that we will share for the rest of our lives.

Let me tell you, the Spice Girls are now Spice Women – full, sensual and stronger through their life experiences. It's fantastic to be around the humour, and although the pressure is on, being part of a group is a wonderful thing. I receive a lot of support and encouragement from the other girls.

We are definitely a democracy. Every morning we check in with each other and we discuss the decisions that have to be made.

We have a great band. Melanie C picked them and she cracks the whip when it comes to vocal warm-ups.

Okay, I think that’s enough for now. See you very soon… one month to go!

"Geri can't sing live. She is shit but she knows she is. At least she is realistic. She admits she is not a great singer but she is determined to give the best possible performance she can. We have been working together a lot and she has been working incredibly hard. Geri is thrilled to have her own little solo spot on the tour. Not all of the girls do, so it is a great chance for her to stand out. She has a great routine worked out but she is worried her voice will let her down."

Victoria Ordered On Weight-Gaining Diet
-= Rumor Warning =-

Posh Spice has been ordered on a diet to gain weight, amid fears that she will lack energy and be too weak to handle the Spice Girls' upcoming world tour. A source tells the Daily Mail (UK):

"First Victoria is going on a week-long cleanse where she will only be able to drink hot lemon water and eat organic fruit and vegetables to detox her system. She will have to keep this up for five days even though she will be training. Her new diet is based on eating small bowls of brown rice with steamed vegetables. Her favorite at the moment is steamed spinach, carrots and tomatoes. She will also be eating beetroot at every mealtime because it's a good source of fibre and iron and low in calories. She is terrified of putting on a single pound and has had to be talked into increasing her food intake. It would be very embarrassing for her if she collapses or gets ill because she’s too weak."

Mel B Helps Break Cell Phone Record
Melanie B and the crowd of over 500 were successful in their attempt to break the record for most cell phones ringing in unison (Story).

While in Toronto, Mel did some interviews and talked about recent stories in the press of Spice Girls infighting. She said:

"The funny thing about the press is they always try and make scandal, and [it] couldn't be further from the truth, we all love each other. I mean, we've been best friends for the last 12 years and that's no lie. We're very close, like sisters. If we argue, it's over in like an hour and then we're back friends again. You know, us five together, we're like gossiping old ladies. We sit there with our cup of teas and talk about our kids and then do a little bit of work, a little bit of singing. It's actually really nice and very, very calming. You know, you've got five girls together, all we do is chat, chat and gossip and chat."

Mel also talked about juggling the demands of the Spice Girls with parenting and with her continued success on Dancing with the Stars:

"My feet are really swollen, but it's good. I haven't worked in about four or five years, so it's nice to get yourself back into it, my way. And if I didn't like it, I wouldn't do it."

Mel also did a video interview with eTalk (CTV), which you can watch here.

Emma On Baby & Concerts
Emma Bunton has posted a blog on the official Spice Girls website. She says:

Hello from LA, we're finally here!

Firstly, I would like to say a huge thank you to everyone who posted messages on my official website about the photo of Beau. Sorry it took so long to introduce him but I'm sure you'll agree he's worth the wait. Jade and I are besotted with him.

Beau took his first flight this week as he flew to the USA for our rehearsals. He was so amazing on the plane, so much so that people even commented on how good he was. I also enjoyed the flight and the Virgin Atlantic team were so helpful, so a huge thanks to them.

When we arrived in LA, it was incredibly exciting. There were lots of paparazzi photographers everywhere and it was a bit mad as I'm sure you've seen from the images – but thank goodness for sunglasses!

So we’re here in sunny LA, our home for the next few weeks whilst we prepare for The Return Of The Spice Girls tour. I can't wait to meet up with girls again to catch up on gossip, giggles, shopping... oh and of course the rehearsals. He he!

I wish I could tell you everything about the show but I don’t want to ruin any surprises. All I can say is that it is going to be fantastic and we are all working really hard to make sure that you all enjoy it.

I’m really excited about the merchandise for the tour too. I don’t know if I should tell you this but as well as T-shirts, the tour programme and the usual merchandise items, we have some baby bits. They are SO cute! I can’t wait to get some for Beau.

Don’t forget that the exclusive first play of the video for Headlines (Friendship Never Ends) will be on BBC1 in the UK on Friday night, just before EastEnders. We are all really pleased with it and hope that you like it too. We had great fun filming it.

Before I go, I want to say well done to Mel B for scoring ten out of ten with all of the judges on Dancing With The Stars this week. We’re all really proud of her. You go Melanie!

Thank you all again for your support - we can’t wait to see you all on tour.

Lots of love
