The Spice Girls have confirmed that they're reuniting for a six-date UK tour next summer, but they won't be joined by their bandmate Victoria Beckham.

Mel B, Emma Bunton, Geri Horner, and Mel C took to their official social network accounts to announce the highly anticipated roadshow, which is set to kick off in Manchester on June 1.

And while Victoria won't be a part of the lineup hitting the road in a tour, she still took time out to release a statement on the exciting announcement.

'Being in the Spice Girls was a hugely important part of my life and I wish my girls so much love and fun as they go back on tour,' said Victoria. 'I know they will put on an amazing show and the fantastic fans past and present are going to have a wonderful time!'

In a new minute-long video unveiled on Monday afternoon, the stars announced their reunion in typically playful fashion.

While the stars will showcase their many hits on the tour, they'll be joined by one of today's chart-toppers, as Jess Glynne has been announced as their guest on the tour.

However, amid fans' joy over the reunion, others have taken a more cynical view, accusing the stars of getting back together for the brief roadshow because they 'need money' – amid reports they're set to pocket ?10million apiece for the six-day outing.

Ticket prices have not yet been announced, but when they reunited in 2007, tickets were advertised for resale, costing up to ?900, with some legitimate tickets being originally priced at ?115.

'Seems all the Spice Girls (except Victoria Beckham) have run out of money,' wrote one person on social media, while another stated: 'Spice Girls needing their rent money I see!'

Meanwhile, a person complaining about Victoria's absence, saying: 'Spice Girls reunion without Victoria Beckham aka Posh Spice aka the now most rich, famous and successful out of the group isn’t really a Spice Girls reunion.'
