The Mirror reports that Sir Bob Geldof will today announce the glittering line-up for music spectacular Live 8 – but the Spice Girls will not be in it. “Many of the biggest rock stars in the world have agreed to take part, and the Spice Girls just don’t fit,” a BBC spokesman said. “It’s a political rally to put pressure on world leaders and their kind of pop act didn’t seem right for this kind of event. There was also a practical problem that with so many great international rock stars and bands wanting to do their bit, there just won’t be time for the Spice Girls. Perhaps, if five or six bands pulled out it would be different, but the truth is it’s just not going to happen.”
