THE Spice Girls have officially announced their huge UK comeback tour this afternoon with a hilarious new video.

Mel C, Mel B, Emma Bunton and Geri Horner all appeared in the minute-long clip which sees Geri miss the all-black dress code memo, opting for a typically sassy sequin number.

As they bicker amongst each other, they joke they can't be falling out so soon after announcing their tour - which was first revealed by The Sun.

They even give fans the iconic la la la's from their hit track Spice Up Your Life.

The girls will play six stadium shows across the UK next year with support from Jess Glynne, and tickets go on sale Saturday at 10.30am.

Kicking off at Manchester's Etihad Stadium on June 1, the group will call at Coventry's Ricoh Stadium two days later, the Stadium of Light in Sunderland on June 6, BT Murrayfield Stadium in Edinburgh on June 8, Bristol's Ashton Gate Stadium on June 10, and end on June 15 at London's Wembley Stadium.

Raring to perform together again, the girls can't hide their excitement.

Emma said: "It’s time to spice things up all over again!!!!! I can’t wait to perform to our forever supporting fans and a whole new spice generation! Love you all!”

Mel B told fans: “I’ve said it sooo many times I’m beside myself it’s actually happening yipppeeee. I’m now properly screaming it from every rooftop - me and my girls will see you all on stage!!”

Even Victoria Beckham, who's not part of the reunion, is supporting the girls, saying: “Being in the Spice Girls was a hugely important part of my life and I wish my girls so much love and fun as they go back on tour, I know they will put on an amazing show and the fantastic fans past and present are going to have a wonderful time!”

Here's where you'll be able to Spice Up Your Life next summer

The girls' six date UK tour will see them play

Manchester's Etihad Stadium on 1 June,

Coventry's Ricoh Stadium 3 June,

Sunderland's Stadium of Light 6 June,

Edinburgh's BT Murrayfield Stadium 8 June,

Bristol's Ashton Gate Stadium 10 June,

London's Wembley Stadium 15 June

Next Saturday the girls will appear for their first TV interview on Jonathan Ross’ ITV chat show.

The Spice Girls are one of the country's most successful pop exports ever but haven’t performed since the London Olympics closing ceremony in 2012 — widely believed to be their last ever gig.

And they have not toured together since their only other reunion, which ended in January 2008. The music comeback of the decade is being managed by Simon Fuller and Modest Management, the firm behind the success of One Direction.

Of course, there is a very obvious talking point — this will be a new Spice line-up.

Party pooper Posh Spice is missing because Victoria Beckham is determined to focus on her financially failing fashion business.

Instead, for the first time, the line-up will be Baby Spice Emma Bunton, Scary Spice Mel B, Ginger Spice Geri and Sporty Spice Mel C.

The Spice Girls were a four-piece for two years after Geri quit the band in 1998.

The remaining four members went ahead with their North American tour and recorded their third album, Forever, before going on hiatus in 2000.

Don’t let anyone tell you the Spice stadium tour is anything other than a huge deal for pop culture.

As well as being famous for legendary pop anthems such as Wannabe, Spice Up Your Life, Stop and Who Do You Think You Are, the Spice Girls changed the face of music forever. They launched a new brand of empowered female pop that helped shape a new generation of women.

And they influenced so many of today’s biggest artists, including Adele, Lady Gaga and Beyonce.

The Spice Girls ignored record company executives who wanted them to dress and look alike, proudly embracing their own personalities and encouraging their fans to do the same.

They broke down cultural barriers, backing Margaret Thatcher during the era of New Labour, socialising with Nelson Mandela and even pinching heir-to-the-throne Prince Charles’ butt.
