Spice Girls suffer chart setback

Spice Girls

The Spice Girls could be disappointed if they're hoping their reunion will bring them more chart-topping success.

Despite the excitement about the group since they announced their reunion in June, their latest single doesn't look like it will make it to number one.

Headlines (Friendship Never Ends) is the official Children in Need single this year and their first new release since they split in 1998.

But early chart predictions suggest it may only just scrape into the top 10.

It's also in danger of becoming the worst-selling Children in Need single ever!

The first official single for the BBC charity was released in 1997 and went straight to number one - its lowest ever chart entry was at number six, in 1999 and 2005.

Sold out

It's not all bad news for the Spice Girls, who've sold millions of records all over the world and are still one of the biggest girl groups ever.

When they announced they were staging a farewell reunion tour next month the tickets sold out in seconds.
