GETTING all five Spice Girls back on stage is the reunion every fan dreams of – and according to Mel B’s mum, it will happen sooner than you think.
Scary Spice says Victoria Beckham recently told her mother, Andrea Brown, she is up for the idea of them all performing next year at Glastonbury to mark the festival’s 50th anniversary.
On tonight’s episode of TV’s The Lateish Show with Mo Gilligan, Mel B said: “Funnily enough, my mum was at her mum’s summer party and Victoria was there, and she did actually mention to my mum that she’d love to do Glastonbury for their 50th next year.
"It’s not just me saying it, she actually did say that to my mum.”
Mo said: “Victoria’s ready to come for de big show, innit!”
Mel B added: “I hope so.”
She is on the programme, which airs on Channel 4 at 10pm, alongside Pixie Lott, comic Lee Mack and actor Riz Ahmed.
Singer Pixie is due to wed model Oliver Cheshire and Mo suggested Mel B give her some marriage advice.
Twice-wed Scary snapped back: “Why you asking me? All my marriages have failed.”
Earlier this month Mel B appeared on Zoe Ball’s Radio 2 breakfast show and said of a possible Spice Girls gig at Glasto: “It just happens to be Glastonbury’s 50th anniversary next year. I think that would be a really good thing to do.
“The girls are going to kill me for saying it but I don’t care, I think we owe it to our fans and ourselves. I would love that.”
If making millions from a 13-date stadium tour didn’t tempt Posh back, an iconic occasion like Glastonbury’s half-century is probably the last chance.
BIFFY CLYRO will play a one-off pre-Q Awards show at Camden’s Roundhouse in London on October 15, ahead of the ceremony at the same venue the following night. Tickets go on sale next Friday at qthemusic.com.
Mercury's rising for rapper Dave
FOLLOWING his memorable Glastonbury performance, Dave is firm favourite to win this year’s Mercury Prize.
And I agree with the bookies, as the South London rapper is one of the UK’s biggest talents.
At yesterday’s nominations bash in central London, he was shortlisted for the album of the year prize alongside acts including The 1975, Foals and Idles.
The winner will be announced in September.
One man who’ll be backing Dave is Alex Mann. He became a viral sensation when he joined Dave on stage at Glasto.
And now he’s about to launch his music career, after bagging a record deal with 3 Beat/Universal.
In an exclusive interview, Alex said: “I find it weird how this has all come about to be fair, and it’s all thanks to Dave.
“He messaged me after Glastonbury and said, ‘just make the most out of it’. He told me to make sure nobody takes advantage of me. I’m hoping we can work together in the future.”
Alex’s debut single, What Ya Kno Bout That Bro, is released today.
And the youngster, who just completed his GCSEs, is now considering doing music full-time. He added: “I’m seeing where this all takes me.”

Things are hotting up
TEMPERATURES are soaring all over Europe – and nowhere more than in the Love Island villa.
All six of the show’s contestants gave in to their sexual urges last night and got down and dirty in the communal bedroom.
Molly-Mae Hague and Tommy Fury did bits but to save their blushes, the cameras panned to stuffed toy Elly Belly.
And India Reynolds and Ovie Soko also got down to it, despite lying close to their co-stars.
More conscious about getting jiggy was dancer Curtis Pritchard, who got told off by Maura Higgins when he refused to go all the way.
Things almost boiled over when Maura scolded Curtis for not going further.
He sternly told her: “Tonight is not the night for that.”
An awkward morning after saw Maura roll her eyes when he offered her a conciliatory cup of coffee.
Talking to the girls afterwards, she said: “Do you want a coffee? Maybe an orgasm would be grand.”
Either way, she got to moan.
GIRLS Aloud singer Nadine Coyle has been announced as a performer for Sink The Pink’s Street Party, held at North London’s Finsbury Park on August 17.

LOSING HER ED
ED Sheeran has shot down claims by Katie Price that they are collaborating on a song.
The former Page 3 model said she was releasing an album and reckoned the Shape Of You singer had written for her.
She said: “An A-lister – he has two top ten hits at the moment – has co-written a song for me.” She confirmed it is Ed, but a spokeswoman for the superstar last night denied the claim.
Katie also proudly declared yesterday that she is engaged to on-off boyfriend, fitness instructor Kris Boyson.
Showing off her sparkler on ITV’s Loose Women, she said: “I’ve got the man. I’m happy.”
With three marriages under her belt, she won’t need a rehearsal for the big day.

Ellie's cold front
ELLIE Bamber won’t be getting any awkward tan lines in the heatwave.
The actress, who split from Bodyguard’s Richard Madden late last year, went topless in a shoot for the third issue of Tings magazine, which is available free at tingslondon.com.
Ellie – who played Cosette in the BBC’s Les Miserables mini series – shared the photo on her Instagram account with the caption: “So much fun shooting in between eating burgers.”
Topless sunbathing and a BBQ sounds like the ideal day at work.
SHE’S got blokes lining up to date her but Louise Redknapp says any potential suitors will have to learn their place in the pecking order.
The actress and singer, single after splitting from footie pundit Jamie Redknapp, said: “Whoever steps in – if anyone does – will have to under-stand they’ll be fourth in line. They will have to be OK with being behind my kids, my work, and my dogs.”
