Spice Girls wannabe starting something new

Dean Gray

The Spice Girls were reunited once more on the very staircase which proved to be their step to stardom.

The group were back together for the first time since their 2008 reunion tour as they launched a stage musical inspired by theirsong, 'Viva Forever'.

The staircase at St Pancras Hotel in London famously featured in the video for the quintet's debut single, 'Wannabe'.

As they appeared together for the first time in four years, Mel B and Geri Halliwell both suggested Angelina Jolie should play Victoria Beckham if anyone chose to make a biopic about the group. But the fashion designer winced, and responded: "Oh, God."

Geri's suggestion for Mel B also fell wide of the mark when she offered US star Jada Pinkett-Smith as a possible contender.

Scary Spice Mel replied: "Why would she have to be mixed race? Zoe Saldana, I want her."

Mel C said she would be happy for Kate Beckinsale to play her. Halliwell opted for Julianne Moore, while Emma Bunton said she would be happy for Kate Hudson to take her role.
