They've been snapped rehearsing, and I'm uber-excited to see the girls back together on Sunday. Finally, the wait is over

Say whatever you want about the Spice Girls. Nope, can’t hear you (I’m busy listening to Spiceworld).

Whatever they do, they’ll be criticised. But I think they’re the perfect act to close the awesome London 2012 Olympic Games.

They’ve been snapped rehearsing on top of black studded taxi cabs (amazing!) – and the worst kept secret ever is out.

Will the world understand? Who cares. If the closing ceremony is in any way as ostentatious as the opening, people worldwide will probably be baffled.

But the Spices are the perfect representation of one of my fave corners of the 90s and firmly deserve their place on stage.

Alongside Annie Lennox, One Direction and The Rolling Stones, the line up on stage is eclectic and as British as it gets.

They’ll probably get called past it, rubbish and out of tune. But I will defend my childhood heroines down to the ground all night long. Girl power!

And I can’t wait to find out the backstage goss, obvs. Who’s hating on who? Who’s demanding ridiculous riders? Or are the Spices – gasp – getting along for once?

Plus, this totally guarantees us more proud David Beckham face’. Which is always, always a good thing.
