The Spice Girls have been pictured together for the first time in years amid reports they are set to reform.

'Posh Spice' Victoria Beckham, 43, posted a picture on social media of all five stars, believed to have been taken in the London home of 'Ginger' Geri Horner, 45.

Beckham said in the Instagram post: "Love my girls!!! So many kisses!!! X Exciting x."

They are thought to have met up to discuss possible future band projects which could earn them a reported £10m each.

Beckham, Horner, 'Scary' Mel Brown, 42, 'Baby' Emma Bunton, 42, and 'Sporty' Mel Chisholm, 44, last performed as a five-piece at the London Olympics in 2012.

Fashion designer Beckham is believed to have decided the time is now right to work together again after previously being reluctant to reunite.

She has reportedly been given assurances by pop supremo and the band's former manager Simon Fuller – who is also behind the new ventures – that her vocals will not be needed, according to The Sun.

The stars, who had a string of hits in the late 1990s until 2000, are reportedly considering TV projects in China, a new television talent show, endorsement deals and a compilation album celebrating their greatest hits.

The "girl power" group's hits include Wannabe, Spice Up Your Life, Do It, Stop, Too Much and 2 Become 1.

It is believed they will not do a full tour due to family and business commitments.

The Sun quoted a source as saying: "Now that she's a top designer Victoria is concerned about singing but she wants to make money to pump back into her business."

Some Twitter users were positive about the speculation of a reunion.

@SirCregan said: "Brilliant I can't wait… Whooooooooo!"

And @emmabnowandthen said: "I hope it is true and to anyone who is asking who need the money… No one in their right mind would turn down 10M!"

007 film must treat Bond girls properly, says Waller-Bridge

Fast cars, martinis and Bond girls are core parts of the formula for 007 films, but one of those elements is set for a change in the latest adventure.

Fleabag creator Phoebe Waller-Bridge, who is working on the script for the 25th Bond film, is on a mission to make sure the movie will "treat women properly" – even if the spy does not.

Ahead of the release of the as-yet-untitled film, Waller-Bridge told Deadline: "There's been a lot of talk about whether or not (the Bond franchise) is relevant now because of who he is and the way he treats women.

"I think that's b*******. I think he's absolutely relevant now. It has just got to grow.

"It has just got to evolve, and the important thing is that the film treats the women properly.

Waller-Bridge says she intends to ensure the female characters, including those played by Lashana Lynch, Lea Seydoux and Ana de Armas, feel "like real people ".

She added: "I just want to make sure that when they get those pages through, that Lashana, Lea and Ana open them and go, 'I can't wait to do that'.

Sir Elton hits out at Russia for ‘cruel’ Rocketman censorship

Sir Elton John has criticised Russian censors for cutting gay sex scenes from the hit musical biopic..

Sir Elton John has criticised Russian censors for cutting gay sex scenes from the hit musical biopic Rocketman.

The critically acclaimed film charts the British singer's rise to fame, and its scenes of kissing and sex between men, as well as drug use, contributed to it earning a 15 certificate in the UK.

But in a bid to play down the sexuality of Sir Elton, played by actor Taron Egerton, for a conservative Russian audience, an estimated five minutes of footage was reportedly removed ahead of its debut in Moscow.

Taron Egerton on Sir Elton: 'I adore him'

The Moscow Times quoted a Russian film critic who had seen the film at its world premiere in Cannes on 16 May as saying "all scenes with kissing, sex and oral sex between men have been cut", as well as a photo displayed during the end credits featuring Sir Elton and his husband David Furnish.

Sir Elton, 72, a prominent gay rights campaigner, released a joint statement with the makers of the film to accuse censors of being "cruelly unaccepting of the love between two people".

"We reject in the strongest possible terms the decision to pander to local laws and censor Rocketman for the Russian market, a move we were unaware of until today," they said.

"That the local distributor has edited out certain scenes, denying the audience the opportunity to see the film as it was intended, is a sad reflection of the divided world we still live in and how it can still be so cruelly unaccepting of the love between two people.
