Sales of the Spice Girls' Greatest Hits album increase 205% since reunion talks

Reports of the group's imminent reunion sends fans back to their succinct but glittering back catalogue.

Last week the Spice Girls offered their strongest hint yet of a reunion after the five got together for the first times in years.

Meeting at Geri Horner's (formerly Halliwell) house in Hertfordshire with their former manager Simon Fuller, a report in The Sun suggests the five members of the girlband have accepted £10m each in a deal that could include a new talent show, television in China, a variety of endorsement deals and a new greatest hits album. 

The news has sent fans back to their succinct but glittering back catalogue, which includes nine Number 1 singles such as Wannabe, Say You'll Be There and Spice Up Your Life. See where all of Spice Girls' singles and album charted in the UK here.

Sales and streams of the group's 2007 Greatest Hits album, released in 2007 to coincide with their world reunion tour, are up 205% compared to the previous week in the UK, according to Official Charts Company data. 

The album is also on course to re-enter the Official Albums Chart Top 100 for the first time in five years, currently at Number 65 in the latest sales flash. The collection peaked at Number 2 on its original release in November 2007. 

More than half (67%) of its sales so far this week are from downloads and physical purchases, while 33% is from streaming equivalent sales.

This May will mark 20 years since Horner left the group, which propelled their two-year period of world domination to an end.

After splitting in December 2000, each member has embarked on a solo career. Last year we combined each members' solo efforts to make the ultimate Official Spice Girls solo chart - find out who came out on top here.
