The London Olympics came to a close Sunday with a star-studded ceremony full of music, dance and fashion – and a dash of Spice.

Talk about girl power!
The Spice Girls – that's Victoria Beckham (Posh), Melanie Brown (Scary), Emma Bunton (Baby), Melanie Chisholm (Sporty) and Geri Halliwell (Ginger) – reunited in London on Tuesday to announce a new jukebox musical, called Viva Forever!, which will feature the group's songs.
At the helm of Viva Forever!, which is scheduled to open on Dec. 11 at London's Piccadilly Theatre, are Jennifer Saunders (Absolutely Fabulous) and Judy Craymer, producer of the musical smash Mamma Mia!.

They say you're not supposed to reuse spices after they've been sitting on the shelf for more than a year, but it looks like Ginger, Sporty, Scary and Baby will make an exception and reunite as the Spice Girls once again – minus "Posh" Victoria Beckham, of course.
"We're actually working on it right now. I don't want to say too much because I don't want to spoil the surprise, but it's really, really exciting," Mel B – Melanie Brown – told Britain's Sun.

She and her boyfriend have a son – and a happy home life – but Spice Girl Emma Bunton feels no need to wed singer Jade Jones.
"We're often together 24/7," Bunton, 32, says of her relationship. "We're really happy, so we don't feel the need to formalize it."
Another thing that's not in the cards – for now, at least? Another Spice Girls reunion.
"We're all in our 30s now and, let's face it, by then most people aren't doing the same thing they were when they were 18," said Bunton, who's signed on to host an upcoming British variety show.
The girl group ended their comeback tour in February. Now, she added, "I'm ready to move forward."

The Spice Girls seemed to leave the door open for another reunion when their tour ended in February, but Melanie Brown says that door has shut for good.
Asked whether the group would ever come together to tour again, Brown offered a quick and emphatic "No" to reporters Thursday night at the 8th Annual BMI Urban Awards in Beverly Hills, adding, "[last year's tour] was our final goodbye."
But Scary Spice still misses her bandmates – Victoria Beckham (Posh Spice), Emma Bunton (Baby Spice) and Geri Halliwell (Ginger Spice) – despite comments she made recently, which indicated she and the girls are "not in touch much."

Friendship never ends?
That's not exactly true, admits Melanie Brown, who says she doesn't speak regularly to her fellow Spice Girls. "We're not in touch much," she tells the new issue of British magazine Closer.
And that includes Victoria Beckham – even though the two former bandmates live just a few miles apart in Los Angeles.
"Victoria and I are very different," Brown explains. "People bracket us together because we live in the same city and we're both interested in fashion. Victoria's fashion line has been very successful and hopefully mine will be too. But that's where the similarities begin and end."

Witness: Victoria Beckham sharing a pre-show liplock with her hunky hubby David Beckham. The tour may be over – but see the moments you missed in PEOPLE's backstage gallery. (See the photos here.)
