Olly Alexander takes his love for Spice Girls very seriously, even though he has reached a certain level of fame now that he doesnt need to buy tickets to any gigs – even their sold out reunion tour.

The Years and Years frontman revealed he would quit the music industry if he isnt so much as put on the tours guest list, in a tongue-in-cheek comment after he was asked if he had locked down his tickets to one of their 2019 shows.

Babes, I dont buy tickets anymore, he told a reporter, after he was asked about the Spiceworld tee he was repping. If I dont get fucking guest list for the Spice Girls tour, Im quitting the music industry. Im putting that out there now.

Fans immediately reacted to the 28-year-olds comment, as they hoped the star would be guest listed or at least telling one massive lie – fearing the repercussions of his threat should the Spice Girls not at least shoot him a seat at Wembley.

One pleaded on social media: I hope the spice girls guest list you Olly cos we DONT want you to quit hun…….please.

The singer then revealed he got totally blanked by Mel B once, as he stood near her out the front of Soho House in Los Angeles while having a yarn with Harry Styles.

She didnt give a shit about me, bless her, why would she? he told NME, adding he has met Geri Horner and Mel C, who perhaps gave more of a shit.

But his love for the group has no chance of wavering simply because Mel B didnt ask for an autograph.

Theyre just such an enduring part of British culture, and I think theyre an important part of peoples lives, he said, saying it felt revolutionary to be in the UK at the time of their releases.

You could also say that because the world today feels so fucked up, anything that reminds us of the “good old days” is appealing. But I also think their songs are amazing and stand the test of time.

Hear hear, Olly!
