Since Posh and Sporty spice decided they didn't want to join a Spice Girls reunion, the other three are replacing them and it's literally anyone's game at this point.

The three remaining Spices - Geri Halliwell (Ginger), Emma Bunton (Baby) and Mel B (Scary) - have approached the BBC with an idea for a talent show to find their new members, the Daily Mail reports.

Is this New Zealand's answer to Meryl Streep?

The show will involve auditions and heats held over five consecutive nights in April, with a live final to air on BBC1, and the winner will join the band for their Hyde Park gig in July, to mark the 21st anniversary of their first No 1 single, Wannabe.

Former Britain's Got Talent judge Piers Morgan wrote for the Mail on Sunday that: "The Spice Girls weren't great singers but they had great chutzpah and attitude.

"Confidence, cheek and a good look will carry a candidate far more than a decent voice or dance ability. You've got to be able to get out there and strut your stuff in full Girl Power mode. As the Spice Girls themselves said, if you have the attitude you can be whatever you wannabe."

The idea is actually similar to how the Spice Girls first got together; they saw an ad in a magazine in 1993, turned up to a London audition and the rest is history.

Emma Bunton was even a replacement herself, making her way into the girl band when one of the original members dropped out.

So if you can get to London to audition, this could be all your childhood dreams come true.
