Their families are more important to them

The Spice Girls have recorded a video to explain why they’ve decided to cut short their world tour.

‘Sadly the tour needs to come to an end by the end of February due to family and personal commitments for Emma, Geri, Mel B, Melanie C and Victoria,’ said a statement last week.

In the clip below, the girls insist they they must get back to their ordinary routines after a series of concerts that have thrilled fans.

The tour started in Vancouver on 2 December and will wrap once Posh, Scary, Baby, Sporty and Ginger play their final gig in Toronto, Canada, on 26 February.

Sources claim the real reason for the split is that Mel C, 33, wants to focus on her solo career and that the girls have been arguing – but they say not.
