Rumours that the Spice Girls are to perform at the Olympics closing ceremony appear to have been proven 100 per cent true, after the lovely ladies were snapped rehearsing in London yesterday.

The five-piece – Emma Bunton, Victoria Beckham, Mel B, Mel C and Geri Halliwell – were photographed yesterday performing on top of five black London cabs, for a routine that was perfectly in fitting with the British theme of the closing event.

The girls looked in their element as they belted out some of their biggest hits, as they rehearsed for what is being built up to be a truly spectacular show.

The Sun also got snaps of a whole host of other stars rehearsing for Sunday’s closing ceremony, which is expected to be watched around the globe by an audience of around four billion people.  

They included Jessie J, pictured dancing on top of a Rolls Royce, rapper Tinie Tempah, Scottish singing legend Annie Lennox, Queen guitarist Brian May and Wham! singer and solo star George Michael.

Other acts rumoured to be performing on Sunday include chart-topping boy bands One Direction and Take That.

Earlier this week stv.tv exclusively reported that former Britain’s Got Talent winners Spelbound will also be stunning audiences with their gravity defying stunts.

The acrobatic gymnastic squad twisted, twirled and spun their way to glory on the 2010 final of the show and will be hoping to dazzle the audiences during Sundays Olympics show too.

The Closing Ceremonies of the London 2012 Summer Olympic Games begin this Sunday, August 12.

The special event has been given the title A Symphony of British Music, celebrating the UK’s prominence and success in the music industry over the last 50 years.

More than 4,100 performers will take centre stage for the stunning show, including 3,500 adult volunteers and 380 schoolchildren from the six east London Host Boroughs.
