Darkness at 3AM: Is this to stop them doing it in ten years?

Yesterday's 3AM column (welcome to the always-on internet world, Trinity Mirror) carried a dread threat that the Spice Girls might reunite for one last time, to mark Nelson Mandela's 90th birthday.

As if the poor man hasn't seen enough suffering and conflict in his lifetime.

A source tells us: "Nelson is desperate for them to perform one last time - and he's confident it will happen. He first met the Spices in 1997 and called them his 'heroes', so he has deep admiration for them."

To be honest, we suspect he was being polite when he said they were his heroes. There's every chance he might hold one or two other people in higher esteem.
