It has been rumoured for a while now that the Spice Girls, minus Victoria Beckham, will be embarking on a 20th anniversary tour and this has sparked rumours that the band will be performing at the Isle of Wight Festival 2016.
According to The Sun newspaper, festival organiser John Giddings “is desperate to secure the tour”.
However, in response to this, in an exclusive interview with the Isle of Wight County Press, he mocked “I’m sure it must be true if it’s in The Sun”. He also added, “They’re friends of mine, but I don’t want to comment”.

Spice Girl Emma Bunton has also shed light on the rumours saying “nothings happening at the moment”. This was later followed up by a tweet from Dan Wootton saying “no official announcement will come until later this year”.
