Former Spice Girls star Melanie Chisholm has dismissed rumours the group is reuniting for a 2014 tour of Australia.

Recent reports suggested the band would be getting back together for a series of dates Down Under after previously cancelling the Aussie leg of the group's world tour in 2008.

The rumours also implied the Spice Girls would be embarking on the tour without Victoria Beckham, who had snubbed the reunion to concentrate on her fashion career, but bandmate Chisholm is adamant the shows are not happening.

She says, "I don't know where that rumour came from. The band have no plans to go to Oz (sic) with or without Victoria."
