The English all girls band Spice Girls have agreed to sign up for a reunion world tour for which each member will get 10 million pounds.
The disbanded group comprising Baby, Ginger, Posh, Scary and Sporty will release details of their 25-days "farewell" tour next Friday.
Mirror.co.uk reports that the band's Virgin record label will organise private jets to take each one of them around the world.
A source said the reunion would be the most talked about showbiz event of the year. "This deal has taken years to sign off. But finally all the girls are on board. It's going to be one of the most phenomenal pop events ever. No expense is being spared to make this an unrivalled spectacular."
The insider added: "The sum on the table is huge - but then it had to be to get the more reluctant members like Mel C to agree. She's been quite precious about her solo career and has always said she'd never get back with the girls.
"But with such a huge sum guaranteed, you can hardly blame her for finally caving in. Now she's now one of the most enthusiastic - although they're all buzzing with a mixture of excitement and trepidation."
