Geri Halliwell's Spice goodbye

Geri Halliwell claims the Spice Girls are unlikely to ever perform as a five-piece again.

The group recently announced their reunion tour was coming to an early close on February 26 and Ginger Spice Geri says fans won't get another chance to see them.

Geri - who sensationally quit the band in 1998 in the middle of their first world tour - said: "It probably won't happen ever again. The Toronto concert on February 26 will be the last time you will ever get to see this Girl Power, the five Spices on the stage as one."

When Geri and the other girls - Victoria Beckham, Mel B, Emma Bunton and Mel C - announced the tour was ending, speculation was rife there had been a huge fall-out.

However, Geri insists it couldn't be further from the truth, and says it had to end because the girls needed to put their families first.

The mother-of-one added to Billboard magazine: "Actually it's gone on longer than planned, because we thought we were only going to go to the end of January. After February everybody had commitments - kids had to go back to school and that. So we had to leave places out that we would have loved to have gone to."

The girls - who are all mothers apart from Mel C - were originally set to perform in Canada, the US, Europe, Argentina, China, South Africa and Australia.

But demand was so high for tickets in their home city of London, they had to add an extra 16 dates meaning they didn't have time to visit Argentina, China, South Africa and Australia.
