Emma Bunton wants Katy Perry to replace Victoria Beckham on the Spice Girls reunion tour.
The 42-year-old singer joked that she wanted the ‘Roar’ hitmaker to join her and bandmates – Mel C, Mel B and Geri Horner – on stage for “just one song” during their string of long-awaited comeback performances but later insisted that Victoria is “not replaceable”.
When asked by Jamie Theakston on Heart Breakfast with Jamie and Emma, which artist they would choose to replace Victoria on the tour, Emma said: “You can’t do that.”
With Mel B adding: “She’s not replaceable.”
And Emma continued: “You can’t do that … but Katy Perry, I’m joking. It’s a joke.”
Mel shared: “But that would be good actually, just for one song.”
With Emma agreeing: “Just for one song.”
The 44-year-old designer – who is married to David Beckham – won’t be joining the reunion as she is busy focusing on her family and fashion career but previously wished the girls well.
Earlier this month, after news of the reunion was revealed, Victoria wrote on Instagram: “Today marks a special day for the girls as they announce the first tour dates since we performed together in 2012! I won’t be joining my girls on stage again but being in the Spice Girls was a hugely important part of my life and I wish them so much love and fun as they go back on tour next year. I know they will put on an amazing show and the fantastic fans past and present are going to have a wonderful time! X vb #spicegirls #friendshipneverends
