“The constant stories about Victoria taking part in alleged Spice Girls activity is nothing more than tabloid nonsense.”
It comes following reports the girl band would reunite for a TV special next year, marking the first time the Wannabe singers have all been together since the Olympic closing ceremony in 2012.
Attempts to kickstart a comeback were scuppered last year when Mel C and Victoria apparently refused to be involved.

The group furhter teased fans last month, as Ginger Spice, Posh Spice and Baby Spice united to film cameos for Mel C [Sporty Spice’s] new video, Room For Love – but Mel B [Scary Spice] was absent.
It was rumoured that the rest of the Spice Girls had fallen out with the America’s Got Talent judge because she turned them down for the video.
But it has now emerged that the pop legends have been in intense negotiations for months and are ready to launch their comeback with former manager Simon Fuller, with the release of a one-off documentary and compilation album next year.

“As it stands, they will be working together on a series of projects, which will include an album and a TV special celebrating the Spice Girls.”
The source added: “And getting Victoria to agree has been a coup for everyone involved, given she has always been the person holding back on a reunion.
“The fact she is on board now is down to how much closer the five of them have become recently.”
