The Spice Girls reunited for Victoria Beckham’s 50th birthday party on Saturday, in a star-studded event also attended by Tom Cruise and Salma Hayek.

The 1990s girl group, who last performed together at the London 2012 Olympic closing ceremony, were seen dancing to their hit song Stop, released in 1998.

The video, posted by Beckham’s husband David, showed the five women performing the song while he gleefully looked on at Oswald’s private members club in Mayfair, London.

Victoria Beckham also posted the video to her social media and wrote: “Best night ever! Happy Birthday to me! I love you all so much!”

Other celebrities at the party included Jason Statham, Gordon Ramsay and Eva Longoria, who is godmother to the Beckhams’ daughter, Harper.

Before the celebrations, Victoria posted to Instagram to say that she felt “so incredibly blessed to have reached this milestone” and added that she was grateful for the “unconditional love and support” of her husband.

On the day of her birthday, April 17, she received online messages from David, her sons Brooklyn, Cruz and Romeo, as well as her old bandmates.

David wrote: “As you head into this birthday you should look back and be proud of what you have accomplished, achieved and what you have built.”

The Spice Girls reunited in 2012 for the closing ceremony of the London Summer Olympics and in 2019 for a world tour that Victoria did not attend.

The girl group’s debut single, Wannabe, was released in 1996 and after two years at the top of the charts Geri Horner, aka Ginger Spice, shocked the world when she left in 1998, citing “differences between us”.

In December 2000, the rest of the group went their separate ways, announcing an indefinite hiatus.

In 2023, Victoria’s life with David was explored in a four-part Netflix documentary series, which also addressed his rise to fame as a footballer and the speculation that he allegedly had an affair while he was playing for Real Madrid in 2003.

It was recently announced that Harper Collins will publish a book  about the couple titled The House Of Beckham: Money, Sex And Power, written by former BBC Panorama reporter Tom Bower.
