The Spice Girls have denied that the hugely successful group is splitting up. Spokesman Alan Edwards responded after comments by Sporty Spice, Melanie Chisholm, which sparked fears for the future of the pop group. Mr Edwards said that, while the Spice Girls are pursuing their own solo projects, the Spice Girls do still exist. Mel C's comments were published in an interview with the Reuters news agency. She is reported as saying that she does not intend to work with the Spice Girls in the future. The departure of Mel C would leave only three Spice Girls: Victoria Beckham, Melanie Brown and Emma Bunton.
