Spice Girls 'In Talks' With Nickelodeon To Launch TV Talent Show To Search For "The New Spice Girls"

British girlband the Spice Girls delighted fans around the world by posting their reunion picture last week. Now they are hoping to take things up a notch by launching a TV talent show with Nickelodeon that will scour the globe for “the new Spice Girls”!

The Sun has revealed that their comeback plans are centred on a new television format which will see Melanie Brown ("Scary Spice"), Melanie Chisholm ("Sporty Spice"), Emma Bunton ("Baby Spice"), Geri Halliwell ("Ginger Spice"), and Victoria Beckham, née Adams ("Posh Spice") put together a girlband formed of different nationalities.

The idea is being driven by Simon Fuller — the man who led the girls’ rise to superstardom in the Nineties as their original manager, and who wants to take the new show to Japan, China, Australia and the US, as well as the UK.

He is keen for the girls to capitalise on the Asian markets.

Those involved in the project also hope the new band will be able to promote a message of unity amid unrest in the world.

The Sun's source told Dan Wootton: “Simon has been formulating this girlband idea for over two years. He wants to create an international band.

"For example, one member will be selected from China, another from India and then someone will be from the UK.

“The plan is to bring people together and add some diversity to the charts.

“Simon has formulated the idea of a TV talent show — based loosely on Take That’s Let It Shine which featured Gary Barlow as a judge — which will have a panel that includes one or more of the girls.

There will then be contributions from the other members depending on where it is being filmed.

“Geri has said she wouldn’t be able to commit to judging for six weeks in China but could appear in London or America.”

The source continued: “Meetings have taken place with Nickelodeon about the show.

“Geri, Mel B, Mel C and Emma have had experience of being on TV talent panels but this would be a first for Victoria.”

Another idea the girls discussed is their own clothing line.

The source added: “It’s likely that any range will be sold in a high street store like H&M.

“The idea is for it to be very cool and a nod to their past looks rather than copies of the girls’ famous outfits.

“If it does go ahead, naturally Victoria will be in full control.”

The Spice Girls are no stranger to Nickelodeon, having appeared on SNICK and All That in the '90s.

The Spice Girls' new TV show is currently in its early stages, so there is currently no guarantee that if it does get made, it'll air on Nickelodeon.

Superfans of the girls, take note — you’d better join the queue now. "Zig-A-Zig, Ah"
