We gotta hand it to our mate Simon Fuller: He is super smart and super commercial.

Just when one thought the Spice Girls would simply be a blast from the past along with their battle cry of “Girl Power!”, not-so-simple Simon has invested- along with the Girls- on a musical based around their hits- and which was his brainchild.

Each of the former Spicy ones stands to make a very cool 5 million quid from the Musical which some say might even be bigger than “Mama Mia.”

Of course, this is just chump change for Victoria Beckham, but for the others whose current careers are hardly on the up and up, this is part of a retirement plan well worth forgetting any past bad feelings and being all warm and cuddly and Spicy to each other again.
