HARD-UP MEL B is making a desperate attempt to re-form the SPICE GIRLS.
Scary, whose solo singing career has bombed, flew to the US on Monday to talk to MEL C about reviving the fab five.
Yes. five — Mel wants former band member GERI HALLIWELL back on board and insists the Spice Girls are NOT finished.
After her final night in West End play The Vagina Monologues on Saturday, she told pals: “I’m off to America to see Mel C. The band ARE still together.”
A friend tells me: “Mel B is going to visit Mel C to get plans started for a comeback.
“Mel C is about to start promoting her second album and Mel is scared Sporty won’t want to come back to the band once her solo work gets in gear.”
The pal added: “Both Posh and Sporty have said that the band is finished, but Mel B wants one last go.
“Her acting career may be taking off but the music is where her heart is — and she has nothing left in that area.”
Mel B plays a nurse in new BBC drama Burn It, which will hit screens next year.
Mel C and Geri are the only Spice Girls with solo record deals after Virgin dropped Emma, Victoria and Mel B.
An insider tells me that Mel B wants to set up massive live dates for the band as well as a new record — and she wants Popstars: The Rivals judge Geri involved.
My source said: “It’s all very ironic. Mel was the one who originally engineered the band’s split to go solo, but she has had some financial worries recently.
“Now she wants Geri to get back for some live dates.
“It seems to hinge on whether Mel C’s solo career can work.
“A Spice Girls stadium tour of the world would be a must for fans and it would be very lucrative for the girls, who have yet to really set the world alight outside the group.”
In March, Mel B was forced to sell her £3.5million mansion because she was broke. Once reckoned to be worth £20million, her outrageous spending has left her struggling.
Her bitter split with ex-husband JIMMY GULZAR cost £750,000.
The Spice Girls were, or should that be are, the biggest girl band ever.
They sold more than 30million records and were the first group to have their first six singles go straight in at No1 in the UK charts.
