Victoria Beckham will be on tour in spirit, or at least on a T-shirt (Picture: REX/TWITTER)Victoria Beckham proves she is still the Queen of pretty much everything as she features on the Spice Girls official tour merchandise – even though she won’t be joining the band.
The mother-of-four has opted out of taking part in the 13-date jaunt for the reunion tour that included t-shirts emblazoned with her face.
Clearly a woman hard to get rid of.
In a sweet tribute to Posh Spice, the girl group who first found global fame in the 90s, have included Posh Spice range tees in their new brand of new merchandise range.
The clothing range has been launched ahead of their 13-date stadium tour, which will see them visit major cities including London, Aberdeen and Dublin.
The new clothing line caters for women, men and children and has taken inspiration from their original 90’s range, and features the logos, branding and images loved by fans worldwide.
The new fashion addition comes after Mel B and Geri were seen in the same room together for the first time, weeks after it was claimed that they had fallen out over Mel’s revelations of their alleged romance.

The Spice Girls kicked off rehearsals for their tour in mid-April but Scary Spice reportedly caused a bit of friction between herself and Geri, after making claims that they’d slept together in the 90s heyday of the girl group.
The singer caused a bit of a stir during an interview with Piers Morgan in which she claimed she had sex with Geri in the late 90s.

‘But it’s a fact. Victoria Beckham will be on tour in spirit, or at least on a T-shirt.
‘We were best friends. It just happened. Have you ever done that? Yeah and I’ve said it now. All done.
Scary Spice later insisted it wasn’t a big deal, saying: ‘I didn’t actually really admit anything, I just admitted, you know, we had a bit of a thing back then and that’s it. All five of us [slept in a bed together], we were on tour, we had all of our own hotel rooms booked but we all ended up bunking in together.
‘That’s what girls do. We’d order room service, watch movies and just hang out together. We work so hard so any down time we had, which was minimal, we wanted to spend every moment together.

I didn’t go into detail about it, at all. It was a little thing and we giggled about it the next day, that’s that. It’s not a big deal, especially not in this day and age.’
However, Geri, 46, who is now married to Christian Horner, has completely denied the claims, and at one point it was rumoured that the tour could be cancelled altogether as the pair apparently refuse to be in the same room as each other.

Although the Wannabe star claimed it was a one-night stand, sources later alleged that it was closer to a year however insiders close to Geri told Metro.co.uk that the story was absolute rubbish.
‘This is all a bit silly. They were best friends but absolutely not lovers,’ the pal said.
But thank the pop fairies that they seem to have put it all behind them though, we have a clothing range and evidence of rehearsals to put our mind at ease.
