The Spice Girls

Critics have said that The Spice Girls new West End spectacle, ‘Viva Forever!’, is best viewed after alcohol, something that’s now been officially okayed by the Girls themselves, who’ve branded a range of ‘Viva Forever!’ cocktails for sale in Harvey Nichols.

The Daily Mail says they’re champagne-based, cost £14.50 per glass, and have each been “lovingly created” to ‘match’ a Spice Girl, so that’s nice. ‘Mel B’s one has a ‘Scary’ chilli on its rim, whilst ‘Sporty’ Mel C’s is a blend of Amaretto, curacao bleu and lemon juice, apparently because she’s part-Italian, part-French and part-embittered.

Victoria ‘Posh’ Beckham’s glass is decorated with a funereal black bow, but she wasn’t present at the ‘grand unveiling’ of the range to appreciate that, she not wanting to have anything to do with it and all.

Meanwhile, has anyone seen Emma Bunton’s chocolate labrador Phoebe? She’s gone AWOL, and looks approximately like this.
