Spice Girls reunite for David Beckham's 40th birthday bash

David Beckham's 40th birthday celebration in Marrakesh seems to have turned into a bit of a Spice Girls reunion, according to pictures his wife put on Instagram.

Victoria Beckham posted images on the social network showing her with former bandmates Mel C, Geri Halliwell and Emma Bunton.

Ex-Desperate Housewives star Eva Longoria, food writer Tana Ramsey and model and actress Denise Vasi are also in pictures, which show them having what looks like a great time in a Moroccan venue.

The fashion designer and singer, formerly Posh Spice, posted a picture - minus David - with the message: "Amazing evening with my girls last night x vb."

She later posted a picture of the four Spice Girls and Longoria, with the message: "Spice Girls in Marrakech!"

Longoria later put up a similar photo with the message: "I'm the new Spice Girl! #LatinaSpice."


However, there were no pictures with the fifth Spice Girl, the X Factor judge Mel B.

Victoria had earlier used her Twitter account to hint at her husband's birthday plans, posting a picture of a dress and even giving the event its own hashtag - #DB40.

She later posted a picture of the couple with their arms wrapped around each other standing by a plane. Her tweet said: "So excited to be celebrating David's birthday x #DB40"

She also posted one on Instagram of the pair by the side of a small lake, writing: "Special evening with family and friends x #DB40 x".

Footballer Beckham shares his birthday with Britain's royal baby, plus the singer Lily Allen (30) and designer Donatella Versace (60). He marked turning 40 by joining Instagram yesterday and he already has over three million followers.
