Horner, or Ginger Spice, also apologised to her bandmates for leaving the Spice Girls in 1998, two years before the rest of the group went on hiatus.

Between songs, she said: ‘I’m sorry. I’m sorry I left. I was just being a brat. I want to say it’s just so good to be back with the girls that I love.’

They also led the crowd in an impromptu singalong of Adele’s Someone Like You after announcing that the Grammy-award winning singer was in the audience.

Ginger Spice captioned the photo ‘Finally together’ while Bunton described the singer as a ‘gorgeous lady’.

‘So we’re done. It’s done,’ she said.
