Channel 4 to release Spice Girls documentary to mark 25 years since their first single

Wannabe first came out in June 1996.


A documentary about iconic girl band, the Spice Girls is set to be released next year.


Announced this morning by Channel 4, Girl Powered: The Spice Girls will tell the story of the best selling girl band of all time.


Using archive footage and interviews, the production will delve into the career of Melanie Brown, Melanie Chilsom, Geri Halliwell, Victoria Beckham and Emma Bunton.

While the exact release date has been confirmed as of yet, the documentary will mark 25 years since the group released their very first single Wannabe which came out in June 1996.


The band reunited at the 2012 Olympics in London to promote Westend musical, Spice Girls' Story: Viva Forever!, which was based on their career.


Since then, Geri, Mel B, Mel C and Emma reunited for a 13 date tour in 2019, which kicked off at Dublin's Croke Park.



Victoria Beckham did not join the reunion as she had prior commitments to her fashion brand.


Last year Paramount Animation announced it would be releasing an animated film based on the Spice Girls.

The film, which has not yet begun production, is set to feature all five band members as well as new music from the group.
