That ear-splitting crackle and pop wasn’t the blare of massive fireworks detonating. It was the sound of Spice Girls member, Melanie Chisholm, busting the bubbles of Spice fans everywhere.

With the Spice Girls’ 20th anniversary approaching in July, Melanie, better known to the world as Sporty Spice or simply Mel C., is voicing that she has no interest in recording any more material with her former band mates. Ever.

“I’ve been a solo artist longer than I was a Spice Girl,” Mel says. “I feel like this is my life now.”

And a grand life it is.

Mel’s doing just fine without the others. The girl’s got 6 solo full length releases to her name and has sold over 12 million albums around the world.

Mel’s 1999 debut, Northern Star, featuring the hit single “I Turn to You,” is actually the most successful solo effort to come from any of the Spice Girls.

Speaking of Mel’s Spice sisters, Victoria Beckham, labelled Posh Spice in her other life, shares Mel’s sentiments about regrouping and isn’t feeling hot about turning the lights back on the Spice Girls either.

That said, Mel wants her fans to know her reasons are personal and her disinterest is not based on resentment.

“I’m very proud to be part of the Spice Girls,” Mel confirms, just in case there were any doubts.

Mel has loads to be proud of, starting with being part of the most successful female group of all time in an era dominated by boy bands.

“Many industries, music being one, [are] heavily dominated by men. We went on to prove a lot of people wrong and be more successful than a lot of the boy bands, if not all of them,” Mel grins. “I hope that inspired other women to not take ‘no’ for an answer.”

Despite how gratifying it once was, the future of the Spice Girls looks dark, but there is still a small glimmer of hope for diehard fans of the girl group. All of this isn’t to say that public appearances or a string of reunion show dates are totally out of the question.

“We never ever thought it would happen the first time around,” Mel admits, referring to 2008’s The Return of the Spice Girls world tour. “So nobody knows what the future holds.”

The baby doll dresses are in a trunk in the attic and the hair is no longer clasped in bunches.

Yet, 38 year-old Emma Bunton still bubbles with the enthusiasm of a teenager.

These days, the energy isn’t focused on her old pop group and careering around the world but in her new career as a radio presenter, now fronting Heart FM’s Saturday show, (formerly Real Radio).

Yet, isn’t this a little less satisfying?

The lady who once performed the likes of Wanna Be to tens of of thousands of people at a time is now talking into a microphone for a living.

Radio is, of course, the theatre of the imagination, but on radio you don’t get to see the audience. And you certainly don’t hear the applause.

“When I took on the job at first I did wonder how I’d feel about it,” she reflects of her three years on the Heart breakfast show.

“But after doing it for a while you come to realise you get incredible feedback. Listeners text in all the time and I meet people in the street and contact our website so they mention things and often suggest topics.”

Emma says appearing on radio this is a very different form of performing.

“It is, but it’s also a world I love. I come into a studio and I play great music. We play all sorts of records with Heart, and I love the mix. And I love the challenge of relating to the audience.”

Pop stars often find it hard to reinvent themselves after enjoying global popularity. Gary Barlow’s recent TV documentary highlighted how hard to can be to be idolised one minute – and ignored the next.

“I knew when the Spice Girls ended I’d have to do new things. And it was scary. But my mum has always been a great role model.

“She took up karate at the age of 40 and now she’s a black belt and a teacher. She’s taught me anything is possible.

“I want to do so many different things in life, to take on new challenges.

While she has had Jamie Theakston as her radio wing man for three years, she’s now flying solo.

“When the red light goes on in the studio I do get that adrenalin rush and sometimes wonder what is going to come out of my mouth and it’s pretty scary.But that’s what I love about it. And if you don’t get nervous, what’s the point?”

She adds, grinning: “Why do a job if you don’t feel your being challenged?

“And here’s the thing. I started with the Spice Girls when I was 19, and that was really young. But hopefully I’ve got a whole new career, which is amazing.”

Does she like the music format? Has she played any Spice Girls records?

“Do you know what, I’ve played Spice Girls a couple of times. But I don’t think I’ve ever played any of my own.”

She adds, laughing: “We don’t like to be too self- indulgent, but now that you’ve mentioned it I’ll go and make that suggestion.”

Emma reveals she was always a budding radio presenter.

“As a kid I used to make up my own radio shows, recording in my bedroom and then go out in the street and ask people what they thought of Bananarama. I wasn’t a child performer in the sense I was always singing and performing to my family, but I did listen to Chris Evans and then go off and think I could become a radio DJ. So I’d make tapes with me playing music and then I’d be like: ‘Next up we have Salt ‘n’ Pepa with Push It!’ It’s amazing that now I’m doing it for real.”

Emma has had a successful solo career, releasing albums and presenting on television, working as a judge on the ITV skating show Dancing on Ice.

In 2012, she reprised her role as one of Edina Monsoon’s disgruntled clients in a revival of the BBC’s Absolutely Fabulous.

But will the Spice Girls be revived? It’s been rumoured they will tour with the Backstreet Boys.

“There is always talk of things happening, but that’s all it is. We love spending time together and the Olympics was amazing. How can you follow that? You never know, although for the moment there’s nothing in the pipeline.”

Emma’s life is pretty full.

“I’ve been working with Unicef for the past couple of years and there’s another project coming up.
But I am a mummy as well. My two boys (Tate and Beau – Emma’s partner is Damage pop star Jade Jones) are six and three. So I want to be with them as much as I possibly can. That’s my priority in life.”

Emma Bunton presents the Celebrate Saturday show from 5pm to 7pm on Heart FM.

LONDON, United Kingdom — Victoria Beckham’s private office in the London headquarters of her fledgling fashion brand, just south of the river Thames in Battersea, is a calm oasis of earthy hues and understated designer furniture. But just outside her door, spread across two floors and two separate, fully-staffed ateliers — complete with in-house patternmakers, sewers and cutters — is a buzzing office with more than 100 people working across design, product development, sales, marketing, operations and finance.

It’s not at all fancy. There are piles of boxes everywhere and mismatched desks are crammed together in every which way. Phones are ringing off the hook and couriers are trailing in and out, with delivery after delivery. A fabric meeting is taking place in the reception area as all the other meeting spaces seem to be fully occupied.

“I’ve only actually just had an office that has windows. I was downstairs in the cupboard!” Ms Beckham jokes as she shows me around the office. “There are no airs and graces here. Nobody treats me as if I’m a famous person. It is what it is.” The crowded workspace has all the signs of a rapidly growing young fashion company.

The Victoria Beckham business turned over a respectable £30 million in sales (about $50 million) in 2013, an impressive 91 percent increase on the year prior, according to figures provided by the company.

But critically, Beckham has also managed to create a brand profile that is significantly larger than the current scale of her business. recently, she has been everywhere. In December, Beckham guest-edited edgy Vogue Paris and appeared on two smouldering cover spreads with her football star husband David. (In total, Beckham has appeared on the cover of nine different international editions of Vogue, with the notable exception of the American edition.) Then there were two simultaneous Vanity Fair covers in Italy and Spain in January, the March cover of Allure in the United States, and a ubiquitous collaboration with Skype, documenting her personal fashion journey. How many other designers can regularly land cover stories on fashion magazines around the world?

“It’s a double-edged sword really,” says Beckham, when asked what role her fame has played in the success of her business. “The most valuable part of being famous is that you have a voice and people will listen. I mean I can get a lot of attention. I don’t have to rely on advertising campaigns,” she admits. “But I don’t like to use that card very often. I like to keep my head down, work hard, focus on what I’m doing business-wise. I like to try and control how much I’m seen. I don’t want to go out and be photographed every day, you know.”

“So, I think that as much as one might say, ‘it has helped,’ I’m not so sure,” she says, “I’ve had to overcome lots of preconceptions, and that’s okay.”

Indeed, it would be too simplistic to credit Victoria Beckham’s phenomenal rise in fashion to the power of her celebrity alone. For years, Beckham actively courted the fashion industry, making red carpet appearances in high-end designer clothing and gaining global media attention on both sides of the Atlantic, simply by going about her day-to-day life.

But she was shunned. Insiders remember a time when brands would call her representatives to ask that she please not wear their clothes, even if she had bought them herself. They did not want to be associated with the perky breasts, pouty poses and over-dyed blonde bob that had come to define her style in the post-Spice Girls days.
