Their hit song Stop was released 25 years ago.

And the Spice Girls have celebrated the milestone anniversary by releasing an alternative music video for the popular track.

The video follows on from the release of Spiceworld25 in November 2022, celebrating 25 years of their studio album, originally released on 1st November 1997.

The band stood in the middle of a street in a line with children playing around them, while belting out the song.

They then performed a complicated set of choreographed dance moves, all in time with each other.

The five members, Mel C, Victoria Beckham, Geri Horner, Mel B and Emma Bunton all sported classic 90s make-up and hairstyles. 

The original music video was filmed at Carnew Street in Dublin, and featured scenes of each member of the group knocking on different doors. 

About the concept for the video, Mel B said: ‘There wasn’t a storyboard for this video—it was more trial and error. 

‘It wasn’t planned down to the last detail and was quite a free-for-all. It’s like everything we do—complete chaos! […] 

‘And we all want to get our bit in, so the director has to be able to encompass us all, plus put his ideas on top of it, and make it all flow.’

The second half of the video showed the group interacting with young girls in various activities, such as running around the streets dancing, skipping rope, playing hopscotch, cat’s cradle and pat-a-cake and hula hooping.

It comes after Mel C put a stop to suggestions the band will play Glastonbury this year.

She stated she would love the group to play the festival, but has insisted it is not part of the group’s current plans.

Asked if festival co-organiser Emily Eavis has called on the band to perform, she told the Guardian newspaper’s G2 supplement: ‘It’s the question I hate the most, because the answer is as disappointing to me as it is to Spice Girls fans.

‘We would love to do Glasto. It just doesn’t fit with the current plan with the girls. We do want to get back on stage – everything is up in the air.’

The Spice Girls, which also includes Emma Bunton and Mel B, reformed without Victoria Beckham for a stadium tour three years ago, and Melanie believes the fashion designer has some ‘fomo (fear of missing out)’ about not being involved in 2019’s Spice World Tour.

She said she is ‘optimistic’ Victoria will change her mind and reunite with her bandmate in the future.

Melanie continued: ‘Of course we had incredible stadium shows in 2019.

‘And you know, there’s definitely a bit of fomo for her, so I’m a big optimist.

‘We were all at Geri’s 50th a couple of months back and Victoria was the first one on the dance floor requesting Spice Girls songs.’

Victoria explained she didn’t take part in the reunion tour because things ‘feel different now’ and she is too busy with her eponymous fashion and beauty lines.

She told Vogue Germany: ‘It took me a lot of courage not to go on tour with the Spice Girls again, but to be the one who says, “You know, I’m not doing it because things feel different now than they used to”.

‘I’d rather concentrate on my family and my company.’
