British pop band The Spice Girls are planning to reunite but one "difficult" member still needs to be convinced.

Speaking to the panel on UK talk show Loose Women, Mel B said the girl band "definitely" plan to reunite.

"We're getting back together for sure," she said.

"In fact, I'm seeing Geri a little bit later on today. We're sisters at the end of the day, and what we went through was quite an amazing, brilliant journey."

Rumours had been swirling that Victoria Beckham was putting the brakes on herself, Mel B, Melanie Chisholm, Emma Bunton and Geri Horner getting back together.

"There's one that's been a bit difficult. But I'm hoping she's going to get roped in," Mel B said.

"We're going to start this year, then go on until next year - and then hopefully the year after that if it's got anything to do with me."

After forming in 1994 the band, whose members were best known as Posh Spice, Baby Spice, Sporty Spice, Scary Spice and Ginger spice, became a global sensation with hits like Wannabe and Spice Up Your Life.

The women parted ways in 2000 after the release of their album Forever.

The group reformed for a tour in 2007-2008 and again for the Opening Ceremony of the 2012 London Olympic Games.
