Whilst on the Jonathan Ross show Melanie C claimed that Victoria Beckham suggested she hadn't actually been asked to join the group's reunion tour.

Emma Bunton protested, along with the rest of the group, that Beckham had been asked, telling Ross, 'She just didn’t want to do it… She was busy with her fashion and she has moved on.
