Spice Girls rehearse for Olympic show
There has been intense speculation that Victoria Beckham, Mel B, Geri Halliwell, Emma Bunton and Mel C were planning to reunite to mark the end of the London 2012 games this weekend.
Mel B and Victoria have left cryptic clues about their plans on Twitter and now the group have been spotted working out the staging for their show.
British newspaper The Sun has obtained a photograph of all five women perched on top of iconic London black taxi cabs. They are clutching microphones, with the photos taken at a car plant in Dagenham, Essex.
In another shot, Victoria, Geri and Mel B are seen strolling around clutching water bottles.
A number of other famous faces were rehearsing at the same time, with claims the entire closing ceremony was being practiced.
Also spotted at the venue were Annie Lennox, Jessie J and George Michael. George has already confirmed he will be singing “a couple” of songs as the eagerly-anticipated event.
The Pet Shop boys are also thought to be performing and were seen moving around in rickshaws, while replicas of Tower Bridge, Big Ben, St Paul’s Cathedral and the Royal Albert Hall are included in the set.
The ceremony will also feature skits from comedians – Russell Brand will apparently appear – as well as routines from dancers and acrobats. One Direction are thought to be taking to the stage, although their routine is a closely-guarded secret.
