Yep, two full decades since Posh Spice first attempted to dance on that staircase, bless her.

Well, three members of the band - Mel B, Geri and Emma - are marking the occasion with an announcement that will be music to the ears' of the band's hardcore fans.

The three are forming a group called GEM (Geri, Emma, Mel), and have registered a website called Spicegem.

What does it mean exactly? We're not sure.

"We've been thinking, we have the best friends in the whole entire world..." Mel B explains in a video launch (see below).

Then Geri continues: "You've stood by us for 20 years, and we want to say a big thank you..."

Before Emma picks up with: "We've had our ups and downs, but you've always been there."

The trio then tell us that they are planning to "celebrate and have a party, and when we do, you're all invited!"

There's no word of Victoria's involvement in any project so far, while Mel C is reported by Digital Spy as saying: "I am keeping tight-lipped. There are lots of discussions going on. Right now I am in the studio working on my own album and that is my focus. I'm taking it slowly."

Fans are unsure what to expect from all of this. There's long been a rumour of a reunion concert next summer in London's Hyde Park, but this hasn't been confirmed.

While this fan expresses what many fear may result of three-piece Spice Girls band.
