Poor ticket sales could bring the axe down

The Spice Girls musical 'Viva Forever' is apparently facing an early axe due to poor ticket sales.

The show, which opened to lacklustre reviews last month, is reportedly facing an early demise.

The Daily Star reports that shows are only averaging a disappointing 75% audience fill for each show.

Jennifer Saunders penned the script for the production, which is based on the girlband's world-renowned back catalogue of hits.

The premiere was shrouded in tabloid drama when Victoria Beckham turned up separately to her bandmates and neglected to attend the glitzy afterparty.

However, a spokesperson for producer Judy Craymer has defended the show, saying that West End tickets in general are hard to sell at this time of year.

"The West End takes a dip this time of year. But the show is doing really well," they said.

Let's hope they're right, and the show really does live up to its name!
