In an interview with The Mirror, Saunders revealed: "During one read through I played one song and then Emma said ‘Oh I think I’m going to cry I loved this song.’

“It's a collection of their best memories and they had such a ball, such a great time together."

Spice Girls Geri Halliwell, Emma Bunton, Victoria Beckham, Melanie Chisholm and Melanie Brown have all been involved in the creation of the musical with varying degrees of participation.

The news of their reunion comes after The Mirror reported in April that not all of the girls would attend the opening night.

A source told the paper: “Victoria and Mel have not spoken for so long and have had no contact,

“For them to kiss and make up is going to be a miracle."

Meanwhile, Sporty Spice Mel C recently announced she would be starring in Lord Andrew Lloyd Webber's revival of Jesus Christ Superstar in the West End.
