The ex-Spice Girl, who appeared with her former bandmates at the London 2012 Olympic closing ceremony, will appear in a performance of Singin’ In The Rain in the heart of London’s theatreland.

She said: “I have a thing for rain, so I am very excited to be performing in the West End musical Singin’ In The Rain and it’s all for BBC’s Children In Need: Pop goes the musical.
