MEL B has jetted into London from LA for a meeting with her fellow former SPICE GIRLS to discuss a reunion gig.
The Artist Formerly Known As Scary had told pals she was making the trip to wish DAVID BECKHAM a happy 32nd birthday at his celebration do.
But I can reveal her two-day visit was actually to talk about the girls staging a Las Vegas-style show.
Mel, EMMA BUNTON, GERI HALLIWELL, VICTORIA BECKHAM and MELANIE CHISHOLM have each been offered Ł1million to do the one-off at Christmas at a venue yet to be decided.
Until now each has rejected the deal, largely because Mel C has been against the idea of any kind of reunion.
But now it is very much on the cards — with only Mel C still to sign up.
She was the only one not at David’s bash at London’s Cipriani restaurant on Wednesday because she was busy filming a pop video.
But sources in the Spice camp tell me she has softened towards the idea of a reunion and is willing to discuss it properly for the first time.
Mel B mixed with Victoria, Geri and Emma at David’s party. The girls knocked back Krug champagne and Grey Goose vodka as they discussed the offer.
An insider said afterwards: “Mel B had been telling everyone she was going to London to say happy birthday to David.
“But the truth is she isn’t particularly close to him.
“She went to the party because she wanted to hang out with the girls and because they had business to discuss. They have been offered a fortune to do the show and they want to do it.
“Mel C is warming to the idea after meeting up with the girls at the christening of Geri’s daughter BLUEBELL MADONNA last month.
“Emma is due to give birth to her first baby in the summer which would leave her enough time to get back into shape and to rehearse.”
The do — which was attended by both Victoria and David’s families and some of David’s friends — was held in a private room at the back of the Cipriani restaurant.
Victoria joked to the guests: “What do you buy the man who has everything? All I can say is that he will be a very lucky boy tonight.”http://www.thesun.co.uk/article/0,,4-2007200610,00.html
