Spice Girls reunite for Beckham's 40th birthday

David Beckham's 40th birthday celebrations turned into a mini Spice Girls reunion yesterday as four of the five girl band members turned out to help the footballer mark the milestone occasion.

Former Sporty Spice Mel C, Ginger Spice Geri Halliwell and Baby Spice Emma Bunton joined Beckham and his wife Victoria, aka Posh Spice, as the athlete celebrated his birthday in Marrakech - with only Scary Spice Mel B missing from the reunion lineup.

Beckham and his wife both kept a record of the reunion by posting pictures on their Instagram accounts:

The former Spice Girl members were not the only famous faces to pop up at Beckham's 40th celebrations as celebrities including Ex-Desperate Housewives star Eva Longoria and food writer Tana Ramsey also appeared in the couple's pictures from last night.

Beckham, who had hired out a space in the six-star Amanjena resort in Morocco to celebrate his birthday with friends and family, has been sharing snaps of his holiday on his new Instagram account and even took time out of the festivities to thank his "beautiful wife for such an amazing day".
