We are still not sure if the proposed reunion of the 90s girl band, Spice Girls, will happen, but what is certain is that they are doing a TV show. The pop group is reportedly launching its own show to rival The X Factor UK, the British reality TV music competition show.

Mel B, Emma Bunton and Geri Horner of the group have been holding discussions with BBC for the programme, which would compete with the ITV talent show, The Voice UK and Gary Barlow’s Let It Shine. The group is yet to sign a contract, reported Female First.

Mel, 41, has been a judge on X Factor and America’s Got Talent. The group also plans to tackle the TV talent show market.
