For the first time since 2008, the Spice Girls were seen in public together to launch a new musical.

‘Viva Forever’! tells the story of a young woman who becomes famous overnight and the impact this has on her relationships with her mother and friends, set to a catalogue of Spice Girls songs.

It will premiere in December this year and run until July 2013.

To launch the musical, Victoria Beckham, Melanie Brown, Emma Bunton, Melanie Chisholm and Geri Halliwell returned to the St Pancras Hotel where they filmed the video of their debut single ‘Wannabe’ in 1996.

Ladies designer watches were the accessory choice for three of the women gathered at the reunion.

Posh, who has carved a name for herself as a fashion designer, teamed her own label dress and Tom Ford boots with a gold ladies designer watch.

Scary also selected a gold watch to complement her grey shift dress and spiked heels, while Ginger wore a silver ladies designer watch to match her short pink dress and strappy sandals.

Baby chose a ring as her statement piece of jewellery while Sporty, who looked girly in a long, white dress, kept it simple and did not wear any.
