“You are inspiring the nation and I am so so proud, we all our. Good luck for the big day but you are winners already.”

David Beckham recently gushed over his wife as she channelled Posh Spice in rare karaoke performance. The former girl group member was filmed by her husband whilst performing a karaoke rendition of the single Stop during a holiday in St Tropez.

The singer turned fashion designer belted out the lyrics whilst busting out some of the song’s signature dance moves. Victoria appeared to be enjoying her rare performance despite her last show with the Spice Girls being a decade ago at the Olympics closing ceremony in 2012.

Fans are now hoping that Posh Spice’s impromptu performance will mean that she’ll re-join the band on the stage at Glastonbury next year.

This comes after bandmate Mel C said s he has “a good feeling” the group will reunite as a five-piece to play the festival, which she says would be an “absolute dream”, reports The Mirror.
