'I mean Spice Girls as a group embodied girl power. I think they’ve grown into women now.

Stop right now! Spice Girls manager Simon Fuller has all but confirmed the girls will return for a reunion tour but has hinted Victoria Beckham will no join despite fans' hopes

'I can’t be talking about young people doing what young people do, parents trying find out what you’re up to, I’m 36-years-old.
