The salient points

  • The Spice Girls - Sporty, Posh, Baby, Ginger and Scary - are one of the most successful girl groups of all time.
  • Their first single, 'Wannabe', was Number One across the planet. The video looks like it cost about £20 to make but was quite cutting edge at the time.
  • 'Say You'll Be There', 'Stop', 'Spice Up Your Life' and 'Viva Forever' are all gold-plated classics and anyone who disagrees is just embarrassing themselves.
  • In 1998, Geri Halliwell left the band on the eve of an American tour, but it's okay because if she hadn't done that we would never have had 'Mi Chico Latino'.
  • Geri's departure had a weird effect on the rest of the band, making them think they were Destiny's Child.
  • In 2007, the 'girls' reformed for a lucrative tour and a terrible single.
