Sob. Geri Halliwell has confirmed Victoria Beckham won't be joining the Spice Girls for their reunion plans this year.

This year marks 20 years since the iconic girlgroup's debut single 'Wannabe' was released, and in the lead up to the milestone, the Spice Girls have been hinting at a comeback to mark the occasion.

While they have been keeping us guessing on whether a reunion will actually go ahead, one thing is now for sure - if it does, the Spice Girls will be a four-piece instead of five.

Confirming Victoria's absence (and crushing our dreams), Geri recently told BBC Newsbeat: "It will be just the four of us."

Looks like Posh Spice won't be digging out those famous LBDs and slinky heels after all... #gutted.

When news of a Spice Girls reunion first surfaced, it was reported Victoria could be a no show. She is said to now be dedicated to her fashion business and has no interest in reliving her girlband days all over again.

At the time, Mel C had refused to take part in the reunion without Victoria. She said all five girls need to do it for the comeback to be a success.

Mel B, however, was adamant all five girls were going to go ahead with it. She has been pushing for a reunion from the get-go and back in September, Mel rubbished claims there would be four taking to the stage instead of five.

She said: "[Victoria] is my friend, I adore her, I love her to pieces. If we do something, it has to be all of us. That's the whole point. As soon as there's something to actually announce, I'll be yelling it from the rooftops."

Geri, meanwhile, has said plans for the Spice Girls to briefly re-group are not "definite" or "concrete" yet, but she pretty much guaranteed VB won't be there.

Still, we've no doubt the reunion will be just as huge as ever and if they are looking for a fifth member... they know where to find us.
