Spice Girls fans, you'll love this news: a new documentary telling the complete story of the best-selling girl band of all time is coming to Channel 4.

Told through a mix of archive footage and interviews, it will tell of the humble beginnings of Geri Horner (Ginger Spice), Emma Bunton (Baby), Melanie C (Sporty), Victoria Beckham (Posh) and Mel B (Scary) who auditioned to become members of the band in 1994.

The story is set to span the girls' incredible career, all the way from their debut single 'Wannabe' in 1996 to the present day, with four out five of the original band (minus Victoria) completing a sellout reunion show just last year.

Channel 4 revealed on Twitter: "Spice Up Your Life with new documentary 'Girl Powered: The Spice Girls' (w/t). Through archive footage and revealing interviews, this series will tell the complete story of the best-selling girl band of all time - coming soon to @Channel4. Zigga Zig Ah!"

The documentary is planned for 2021 to coincide with the 25th anniversary of 'Wannabe' and the girls' 25th anniversary tour, which they are reportedly embarking on.

It follows the Spice Girls held a reunion tour last year which saw 700,000 dedicated fans turn out for the girls' comeback.
