Not content with simply chartering a jet like other celebs, the Spice Girls have gone one better as they head back to Britain for their dates at London's O2 arena. On Wednesday pop's most fabulous five unveiled Spice One, a Virgin Boeing 747 renamed in their honour.

Emma Bunton will be particularly glad to travel in a little bit of extra comfort, after taking a tumble on stage. Baby - who gamely joined her friends of over a decade on tour shortly after the birth of her baby boy - sprained her ankle at the Spices' Las Vegas gig. Ever the trouper, the new mum promises fans she won't miss the group's hugely-anticipated UK opener on Saturday, however.

It wasn't all upsets in Sin City, though. Victoria and David Beckham made the most of their time in the desert city, partying two nights in a row and sleeping all day. On one outing the couple spent three hours in the VIP area at the Spearmint Rhino lapdancing club, celebrating a friend's birthday.

"We've been behaving like rock stars... and we're loving it," confessed Posh. "It hasn't been like this for years - since before our son Brooklyn was born."
