The Spice Girls have confirmed that they will be spicing up our lives once again with a highly anticipated reunion tour - minus Victoria 'Posh Spice' Beckham.

And while fans may be mourning the loss of the band’s fifth member as they delight audiences with classic tunes such as 2 become 1 and Viva Forever, there could be some brighter news in store.

Emma Bunton – aka Baby Spice – has hinted that showbiz chum Holly Willoughby has already embraced the ‘girl power’ motto and has been learning some Spice Girl moves under her expert tutelage.

The surprising revelation was made after the group’s 1997 hit Stop was played on Tuesday morning’s Heart radio show – which Emma Co-presents with Jamie Theakston.

“So we just heard Stop,” co-host Jamie Theakston said. “You still remember all the moves presumably?”

Responding Emma replied: “I do remember all the moves. It’s Holly Willoughby’s favourite song so I had to teach her the routine.”

We can just imagine fans’ faces if Holly made a surprise appearance on the a six-date UK tour next summer!

This Morning and I’m a Celeb presenter Holly has already shared her excitement over the news that the Baby, Ginger, Scary and Sporty are back to what they do best nine years after their last appearance at the closing ceremony of the London 2012 Olympic Games.

Taking to Instagram she captioned a video of the Spice Girls with the words: “This makes me soooooo happy! @emmaleebunton.”

The presenter’s Spice Girl fandom also reached new heights when the above image was also posted on the Instagram page of Angie Smith – the stylist responsible for the 37-year-old’s her flawless This Morning looks.

The caption underneath the image read: “Just a little bit exciting.”

But it looks like Holly’s hectic schedule – which includes heading into the Australian jungle to co-present I’m a Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here! alongside Dec Donnelly and a clothing campaign with M&S  – won’t allow for a spell behind the microphone.

Still we wonder what moniker Holly would adopt should she decide to go all Spice Girl on us?
