Simon Fuller has confirmed plans for a new musical based on the Spice Girls and their music.
The stage production will be named after the group's 1998 hit 'Viva Forever' and created by 'Mamma Mia!' producer Judy Craymer.
Fuller, who managed the Spice Girls during their early career, said that the five-piece are "very excited" about the project.
"What Judy has achieved with her all-conquering box office smash hit 'Mamma Mia!' and what the Spice Girls created with their powerful record-breaking mix of girl power and hit songs, has influenced pop culture more than anyone can imagine," Fuller said.
Craymer revealed that she wants to "create a unique celebration of the band and its music, with its own flavour and joyful message".
"It is important to me that the excitement, style and humour of the Spice Girls is well represented on stage," she added.
The Spice Girls rose to fame with debut single 'Wannabe' in 1996. They have since sold over 65 million records worldwide.
The group last performed together in Toronto as part of their 'Return of The Spice Girls' world tour in February 2008.
