She kicked off the Spice World reunion tour in Croke Park, Dublin last week.

And Geri Horner was left awestruck ahead of the band’s third Manchester concert on Saturday when a young dance troupe performed a Spice Girls inspired dance outside her hotel.

The star, 46, had been heading towards an Aston Martin parked outside the Lowry Hotel in Salford when four girls suddenly began dancing to a medley of her band’s hits.

Ginger Spice, who was with her husband Christian and her daughter Bluebell, 13, and son Monty, two, turned to watch the performance with her hand held over her heart, commenting ‘wow, amazing’.

The girls, who had waited outside the hotel for four hours for Geri, didn’t miss a beat as the music changed from a remix of 1996 hit Wannabe to Who Do You Think You Are.

Geri, who was dressed in a chic white blazer and blouse, then grinned at the ‘Spicealicious’ troupe as a girl in red, Kaitlen Williams, performed solo stunts.

Amazing: Ginger Spice turned to watch the performance with a grin on her face and her hand held over her heart, commenting 'wow, amazing' at the energetic dance

She said ‘You’ve got it girls!’ as they rounded off their energetic dance with a series of handsprings to Spice Up Your Life – to much applause from onlookers.

The 90s superstar then told the girls ‘well done, you were amazing’ and brought them in for a group hug before she was ushered away by a security guard. 

Jake Land, who caught the moment on camera, said the parents of Kaitlen, Macy Turner, Demi Aughey and Zara Baptiste had approached Geri’s bodyguard to ask if she would be happy to stop and watch the dance.

He said: ‘They came to the hotel and waited hours to meet Geri and to perform their dance moves in front of Geri herself.

‘They brought a big portable speaker along with them practiced and practiced before Geri showed, you could tell they wanted to impress her.

‘The parents of the girls approached Geri’s bodyguard and asked him to ask her if she will stop for them so they can perform a dance routine to Spice Girls music.

‘There was no hesitation Geri was completely happy with stopping to watch the group dance.

‘It was so cute, Geri just stood there and watched on and hugged all the girls at the end.’ 

The sweet moment comes after Geri’s bandmate Mel C belted out Wannabe in a Liverpool FC shirt during the girl group’s Manchester gig on Saturday.
