Here’s the latest celebrity gossip and entertainment news from the world of stage, screen and television.
Australia is waiting with bated breath after the yes-maybe-definitely not confirmed announcement by Mel B that the Spice Girls would be bringing their comeback tour to Australia in 2020.
Following a hit show in Wembley during the last leg of their 2019 UK tour, Mel B aka Scary Spice, gleefully yelled into the microphone, “see you in February Australia!”. Since then, Mel has come out and admitted that the announcement may have been a little premature. Scary Spice said she put the suggestion out so publicly in the hopes that it would catch on, as it has been something she’s been gunning for, for years.
The announcement was especially dicey after a similiar incident in 2008, when the Girls cancelled a planned Sydney show due to family concerns.
But Spice fans shouldn’t despair completely, the rumour mill has it that the entire band is definitely keen for an Australian tour.
Until the real news comes out as to whether the tour is a go, fans will be glad to know that despite Posh Spice not making an appearance in the UK tour, she has designed a special edition Spice Girls t-shirt.
All profits raised will go to Red-Nose Day USA, a charity that focuses on fighting child poverty. The limited edition t-shirt features all five of the Spice Girls in their iconic jumping pose, red noses included.
SHOOT FOR THE STARS
The Bachelor Australia is back for a seventh season, and while the air date has not yet been announced, the man in question certainly has.
Matt Agnew is the nations newest bachelor and from what has been revealed so far, he’s a new breed of romantic. Unlike his predecessor the Honey Badger, Agnew is not a celebrity and has instead been dubbed more of the ‘everyday man’ despite being an astrophysicist and a PhD student at Swinburne University of Technology’s Centre for Astrophysics and Supercomputing.
Agnew has described his studies as the search within all known universes for stable planets that can support life. As for what he is looking for in a lady, Agnew is a little more down to earth.
“I’ve got a real ‘do it once, do it right’ mentality so I’ll be making sure I throw myself into it, be vulnerable and enjoy what comes from that,” he said.”
The scientist is also partial to a lady who is “supportive, compassionate, warm, caring, generous. Someone who’s fun and doesn’t mind being a bit silly.”
While the release date is still to be confirmed, past seasons have usually aired in July or August, so Australia will be seeing this potential love story on their screens soon.
