Spice Girls Emma Bunton and Geri Halliwell cheered on their former band mate Melanie C during her last performance in Jesus Christ Superstar.

Sporty Spice Melanie has been starring as Mary Magdalene in the hit West End musical since September, alongside Tim Minchin and Chris Moyles.


The musical pair were proud and impressed by their 38-year-old pal's performance and celebrated her success at the after-show party at the Hilton hotel in Wembley on Wednesday.

Andrew Lloyd Webber's latest musical revival made headlines earlier in the year due to its televised audition series Superstar, which crowned 31-year-old Ben Forster as Jesus.

Emma, who recently collaborated with Melanie on her new album, was so wowed by Melanie's performance she tweeted "I am so unbelievably proud of my gorgeous friend Melanie C she was fantastic!!!"The girls proved they are still leading the style stakes with Emma sporting and electric blue, leopard print dress and a Mulberry bag, whilst Geri looked svelte in a long-sleeved, black dress.

But the trio seemed to be feeling the absence of the other Spice Girls, who reunited to perform at the Olympic closing ceremony, as Mel B tweeted: "wish I was there with you."
