When asked whether it was ever a possibility, Melanie explained: “We would have loved to be there, but it was just one of those situations where it was impossible.
“With us girls, there is so much that we would like to do but there are four, five, people involved with families and other commitments and responsibilities.
“I think that was something that we had to miss, but we weren’t happy about it. Sometimes things don’t work out.”
Nevertheless, fans were treated to a mini–Spice Girls reunion when Melanie was joined by Geri Horner at the Women’s Euro 2022 final on Sunday.
