15 signs you were a die hard Spice Girls fan

Only the best girl band of all time.

1. You picked the one Spice Girl you ‘were’, and your dedication to them was unwavering

If you were Sporty Spice, you didn’t wear dresses, full stop. If you were Baby, you had pigtails every day.

2. These were your dream shoes

The state of them! But they were high fashion to you in 1997.

3. You thought the Union Jack dress was the coolest f**king thing you’d ever seen

LOL at it ever being referred to as a ‘dress’. But still.

4. You made it your mission to own everything with their faces on it

Calendars, body spray, those Chupa Chups lollies.

5. Even the knockoff t-shirts you could get from market stalls

If only you still had it now.

6. And the Barbie dolls that you might have been too old to play with

7. You went mad when you found out they’d shot the video for Stop in Dublin and Wicklow

You could have MET them. They were right THERE.

8. And would have done anything for tickets to their 1998 gigs in the Point

9.  Spice World: The Movie is a work of art to you, even today

Meat Loaf, Richard E Grant, Richard O’Brien, Elvis Costello, Roger Moore… So many names you wouldn’t expect to be associated with such a film, but here we are.

10. You were moderately interested in their love lives, as long as they didn’t interfere with Spice Girling

“You break up the Spice Girls and I will end you” – you to David Beckham, 1998.

11. And never felt more betrayed than when Geri left

‘Friendship never ends’, Geri! Did that mean nothing to you?

12. Viva Forever/Goodbye were just about the saddest songs you could think of

13. You followed their respective solo careers with some scepticism

Though you had to admit Geri cracked out some tunes:

And Victoria was always interesting, anyway:

Shouts must also go to Mel C’s duet with Bryan Adams, an unlikely banger.

14. And completely got your life during their reunion performance at the 2012 Olympics

On top of the black cabs. Are you able.

15. Even now, the laugh at the start of Wannabe sparks something in you
