Piers Morgan slams the Spice Girls and says they should 'let it go' as they embark on reunion without 'sourpuss Victoria Beckham'

PIERS Morgan has slammed the Spice Girls reunion and claimed that Mel B, Emma Bunton, Geri Horner and Mel C should "let it go".

The 53-year-old host blasted the singers after The Sun revealed that they are about to announce their upcoming tour, and said it won't be the same without original band member "sourpuss Victoria Beckham".

He said on GMB today: "They should let it go, the Spice Girls seriously. I love them but it's never the same.

"You haven't got old misery guts, the band has to be the band, she might be the world's biggest sourpuss but you want the sourpuss. It's not the same without her."

Susanna Reid fought back and said: "But she's your least favourite! What about Take That?"

But Piers replied: "Take That were good, yeah, but it wasn't the same without Robbie (Williams)."



He added: "I just don't think you should ever revisit these things, they have their time. It's all about Girl Power. There's no point seizing any more, you've already got the power."

However, viewers disagreed with Piers, with one writing: "I love the Spice Girls, best band ever!"

The band are set to announce their reunion tour at 3pm today.

The iconic group have secretly recorded a video message to the world that will be broadcast on Bonfire Night.

The group haven’t performed since the London Olympics closing ceremony in 2012 — which was widely believed to be their last ever gig.

And they have not toured together since their only other reunion, which ended in January 2008.
