Melanie Brown has described the Spice Girls’ concert at Wembley Stadium as one of the most important moments of her life.

She will be joined by Emma Bunton, Geri Horner and Melanie Chisholm on Thursday evening for the first of three London dates rounding off the girl group’s reunion tour.

Brown, known as Scary Spice, posted a picture of herself alongside two of her three daughters asleep in the car on the way to the venue on Instagram.

The Spice Girls embarked on their reunion tour in late May and have played in Dublin, Cardiff, Manchester, Coventry, Sunderland, Edinburgh and Bristol.

They play at London’s Wembley Stadium on Thursday, Friday and Saturday, rounding off the tour, which does not include Victoria Beckham.

Hollywood star Emma Stone will be among the fans at the first of the Wembley gigs.

Bunton told the Heart Breakfast radio show earlier on Thursday: “Do you know who we’ve got coming? Oh, I hope I’m allowed to say this but Emma Stone is coming tonight, and I’ve never met Emma Stone and we’re going to be meeting her, so I’m really excited”
