Spice Girls Viva Forever Launch

It's been four years since The Spice Girls were last seen together at their Spice Girls reunion tour in 2008 and today, the five will be announcing details of the stage musical based on their songs, written by Absolutely Fabulous' Jennifer Saunders and produced by Judy Craymer, the same lady behind the ABBA musical, 'Mamma Mia'. Yes, that's Emma Bunton, Melanie Chisholm, Melanie Brown, Geri Halliwell and Victoria Beckham all together TODAY.

Excited yet? 'Viva Forever' is expected to headline at West End's Piccadilly Theatre this December and in anticipation, Mel C has already taken to Twitter saying, 'Early start. BIG DAY!!! X' while Mel B has said, 'Whoop whoop where my spice biatches at!!! Lovin ALL spice fans always!' Victoria Beckham posted a link to Peaches and Herb's song 'Reunited' and Geri shared a photo of the five from their reunion tour saying, 'Look back, realise how far you've come.'

We don't know about you but our teenage selves (and let's admit it, our present selves) are hyperventilating with excitement. Grazia HQ has become a melting mess of women reminiscing about their favourite Spice Girls moments so we decided to compile some of their best moments right here on Grazia Daily.

Remember when Geri Halliwell pinched Prince Charles' bottom (and the scowling look his bodyguard gave her!?), or the first time you saw the trailer for 1997's 'Spice World' movie? Or, how you couldn't get the words of 'zig-a-zig-ah!' out of your head? Re-live them all below...

The Spice Girls encounter with Prince Charles was simply brilliant. Just look at how hyper Geri was! 'Say Girl Power!' she bossed while getting The Prince of Wales to do the peace sign, 'It means power to the people, surely you believe in that!?' Not forgetting to mention, that cheeky bottom pinch while he walked away...

Then, there was the Spice World trailer where we saw more platform shoes, union jacks and lines like Victoria Beckham's 'Do you want that shaken or stirred?'


And who can forget THAT Union Jack top/dress that Geri Halliwell wore to the Spice Girls' performance of 'Who Do You Think You Are?' at 1997's Brit Awards, teamed with huge red platforms?


Have we mentioned that we're excited? We can't wait to see 'Spice Up Your Life' as part of the musical, it was practically the theme of the 90s.


And no one can forget how adorable it was when Beckham baby, Cruz (then 3) hopped up on stage at the 2008 Reunion Tour to breakdance to 'Mama', wearing a T-shirt that said 'POSH.' Aw!
