Imagine going to see the School of Rock stage show in London's West End and having an actual Spice Girl come out to perform their most iconic hit 'Wannabe' with the cast...

Well, it happened on Thursday (March 16) when actor David Finn announced the cast were about to perform a very special encore, before launching into a rock version of 'Wannabe' that sounded a little bit like the opening of One Direction's 'What Makes You Beautiful'.

Then, a couple of lines into the song, out came Mel C (wearing a jacket that we really want for ourselves) to spice up the audience's life.

The cast performed the entire song, even the 'So here's the story from A to Z' bit (which Finn did quite well) while throwing in the riff from the Girls Aloud vs Sugababes Run-DMC vs Aerosmith hit classic 'Walk This Way'.

Meanwhile, Mel C appeared on The Nightly Show last night and said that she wouldn't commit to a Spice Girls reunion unless all five were involved.

"I kinda feel like it's not really doing the band justice going out as a four-piece. Whoever is missing – it doesn't matter! For me, Spice Girls – it's like a jigsaw puzzle. It's not the same."

Meanwhile, Victoria seemed to pour cold water over the idea of ever reuniting, saying: "There won't be a reunion because I think that when we performed at the Olympics, that was so great and that was us celebrating everything that we'd achieved."

Let's all remind ourselves of the best Spice Girls song, shall we?

What, were you expecting 'Headlines'?
