You are the Princess Shireen of the House Baratheon, and you are my daughter.

Amazingly – or depressingly – it's almost been 20 years since the Spice Girls breezed onto the pop scene, sang a few tunes, and screamed their girl power! message so loud that the world had no choice but to listen.

Like Madonna before them and Britney after, the Spice Girls captured the cultural zeitgeist. They were literally everywhere, and even after two decades and two brief reunions, their fans – some of them now dangerously close to middle age – still await the day that Posh, Baby, Sporty, Scary and Ginger get it together and hit the road again.

But maybe they won't need to wait much longer. Check out this Instagram snap posted by Mel B over the weekend...

An afternoon with my biatches

Say you'll be there, VB...

Next year marks the 20th anniversary of the release of Wannabe, which makes 2016 the perfect moment for the girls to regroup, celebrate their success and potentially even make a new record...

Mel B in particular has been talking up the possibility of that happening for a while, but there's always been one obstacle blocking the reunion: Posh.

Victoria is by far the most successful solo Spice, having wisely ditched music to establish herself as a designer and entrepreneur in the fashion industry.

As a result of that success, as well as a rumored feud of some sort between VB and Scary, fans seem to have accepted that if, or when, the girls reunited, Posh won't be a part of the line-up. And that would be a shame, because as we saw when Geri left, four Spices make for one very incomplete recipe.

Unfinished business

But don't panic – there's every reason to imagine that Victoria will play her part in this reunion. For one thing, the Spice Girls have unfinished business; their 2007 global tour was meant to visit five continents, but in the end the girls only played North America and Europe.

And now more than ever, '90s nostalgia is in full swing. Adele rarely misses an opportunity to proclaim the Spice Girls her all-time faves, and a collaboration of some kind between the current and former biggest artists in the world would be guaranteed to grab some serious column inches.

It's not like the girls' fans have grown out of their "Spice phase," either...

That kind of devotion just has to be rewarded.

This time 19 years ago, 2 Become 1 was the UK Christmas number one, and who wouldn't secretly love to see them back at the top of the charts a year from now? But it has to be with Vicky, or not at all.


Shake it to the left if you're havin' a good time... should the Spice Girls reunite in 2016?
