It would be the first time all five singers have performed on stage since the closing ceremony of the London Olympics in 2012, after Victoria declined the chance to rejoin the band for their 2019 reunion tour.
‘BBC bosses are determined to put on a show to remember and what band is more iconic than the Spice Girls,’ a source said.
‘The invitation has been made and it’s now in the hands of the girls.
‘It’s no secret they regret turning down a similar opportunity for the Diamond Jubilee and they all have a deep respect for the Royal Family and the Queen.’

‘Now it’s done again. There’s nothing on the agenda and they’re focusing on their own things.’
They added: ‘A few years of lockdown and everyone’s back has turned on the group in favour of other projects.
‘Geri is talking about new TV things, Emma has TV and radio work and the two Mel’s are focusing on their own stuff.
‘Victoria certainly isn’t going to be the one to bring it back to life — so it has fizzled out. They’re done.’
