Singer Adele has been getting in the mood for next year’s Spice Girls reunion tour by posting a throwback snap of herself as a young girl surrounded by posters of the girl band on her bedroom wall.

She posted the picture on Instagram with the caption, "HA! This is how I feel right now! I AM READY," along with an emoji of a peace sign, the band's symbol of 'girl power' during their nineties heyday.

Speaking about Adele's reaction to the tour, Spice Girl Emma Bunton revealed that she once met Adele.

"I was at a gig and I was on my way out, getting in to my car. And she came running up to me and she just went `Oh my God, I’m such a big Spice Girls fan and I can’t even look at you. And now I’m gonna go cos I’m gonna cry.’

"And she ran off and actually it was so quick, I didn’t realise until I was half way down the stairs and someone went "that’s Adele." And I was like, 'I LOVE YOU TOO.'"

Victoria Beckham will not be joining her old band on the tour and posted an Instagram photo explaining why.

She wrote: "Today marks a special day for the girls as they announce the first tour dates since we performed together in 2012!

"I won't be joining my girls on stage again but being in the Spice Girls was a hugely important part of my life and I wish them so much love and fun as they go back on tour next year.

"I know they will put on an amazing show and the fantastic fans past and present are going to have a wonderful time! X vb #spicegirls."
