MEL C confirmed fears a Spice Girls reunion could be delayed until 2022 after COVID-19 scuppered plans.
It was hoped Geri Horner, Mel B, Mel C and Emma Bunton would perform in America, Europe and Australia next year while also making a movie about their success.
Mel C – who released her eighth studio album today – said the coronavirus had forced the band to hold fire on booking any live shows.
Asked on The One Shoe tonight if they'll go on tour next year, she said: "There’s so much uncertainty isn’t there at the moment with things.
"We do talk, we would love to do more shows, but we can’t really plan at the moment. But hopefully, if it’s not next year, then maybe the year after. I’m very keen."
Next year marks a huge milestone for the Spice Girls as its 25 years since the release of their first single Wannabe.
Victoria Beckham is still refusing to take part in another reunion after she skipped their 2019 world tour.
Her decision comes despite her making more money from the band last year than her failing fashion label.
Sources say their next tour will likely to be the final time the supergroup, who have had nine UK No1 singles and have sold 85million records worldwide, hit the road — with Geri now 47, Mel C 46, Mel B 45 and Emma 44.
Insiders say Mel C has been one of the major driving forces in getting the show on the road, having completed her solo tour this year.
A source added: “They are approaching 50 so they want to get out while they still look great for the fans.”
Last year’s reunion tour sold 700,000 tickets and made a £200million profit.
A source added: “It proved how high the demand is for more.”
However, Mel C has booked a solo tour after releasing her eigth self-titled album.
She said the record was inspired by their incredible 2019, saying: "2019 for myself and the Spice Girls was an incredible year.
"It just made me feel really reflective and I was starting to work on a new album and after the tour I just felt really inspired to write something really empowering about all of my experiences and the amazing life I’ve had because of these incredible fans out there."
