Stop right now: Victoria Beckham is reportedly stopping the Spice Girls reunion

A one-off Spice Girls reunion for the 2012 London Olympics looks set to be a non starter.

Recent reports in the US suggested that all of the girls are willing to go ahead and perform at the huge sporting event, but Victoria Beckham is not on board.

The former number one girl band are close to securing a deal because Mel B is allegedly pushing them to reunite and is slowly convincing the rest of them to do it.

Scary Spice has the full support of Geri Halliwell, aka Ginger Spice, and the mother-of-one has said in the past that she would jump at the chance to take over a stage one more time.

Mel C, who has become a successful stage actress , is obviously massively into sport and would like to perform in the Olympic stadium.

She said: 'The Olympics would be brilliant, but I don’t know the truth. I’d love to do something, but it would have to involve all five of us.’

But with Victoria, aka Posh Spice, proving a stumbling block for the girls, the reunion is currently in doubt.

A source close to the girls told website Radar Online how stubborn the fashion designer is being.

They said: 'Mel B and Emma Bunton are agreeable to doing it, but the holdout seems to be Victoria Beckham. She has so much going on. and she isn't agreeing to it - yet!'

They continued: 'Mel B is pushing for it to happen. It would be an opportunity of a lifetime for the band to perform in front of a worldwide audience in front of the best athletes in their country - well, there are no words!'

There may be a chance that Victoria will change her mind, however, if her husband David Beckham is selected to play for Great Britain in the summer.

Fans can expect to hear more from the Spice Girls, who last reunited in 2007 for a tour, when a musical production about them gets underway .

All of the girls have signed an allowance to allow the use of their names in the musical which has been written by English comic Jennifer Saunders.
