A Spice Girls fan has listed the original Union Jack bus from the 1997 film Spice World on Airbnb for two overnight stays.

Coinciding with Spice Girls reunion shows on June 14 and 15, the bus will be situated in Wembley Park and will cost £99 per night.

Host Suzanne Godley, who helped renovate the bus after her boss bought it, said the project was inspired by her “childhood obsession” with the band.

She said: “When my boss mentioned that he was considering buying the Spice Bus I was desperate to be a part of its renovation. We’ve worked hard over the past few months to turn the bus into a home.”

The bus features 90s decor including vintage magazines and CDs.

Ms Godley said: “The Spice Girls were my childhood obsession.

“While I have grown up over the years, I don’t think I’ve ever grown out of my love for them.”

The bus will sleep three guests per night during two nights of the Spice Girls’ three-night residency at Wembley Stadium.

Ms Godley said: “I’m so excited to open it up to the public with the support of Airbnb.

“Being part of this project has been like a dream come true and I can’t wait to meet other Spice Girls fans through this experience.”

Ms Godley made the dates available at 8am on Wednesday and the bus is now fully booked.
