The Spice Girls last night played their first gig since reforming at the annual Victoria's Secret fashion show in Hollywood.

The reunited five-piece played two songs at the Los Angeles show, recorded at the Kodak Theatre ahead of its December 4th broadcast.

As well as new single Headlines (Friendship Never Ends), this year's Children in Need song - and currently receiving just one play per day on BBC Radio 1, having only made the station's C-list - the Girl Power group sang their 1998 hit Stop.

Geri Halliwell - who left the group in May 1998 - told GMTV that the two-song set had been a "good warm-up" for the band's upcoming world tour, which kicks off in Vancouver, Canada next month.

Talking backstage, she promised the new tour would be "full of drama".

And Emma Bunton said the reunited group - who performed clad in second world war-era tunics and military caps - were having "the best time" since getting back together and were looking forward to performing "all our old classics" during the world tour.

The Spice Girls are set to perform their new single on tonight's Children in Need charity show on BBC1.

Before their performance they had watched Black Eyed Peas member perform a solo set after stepping in to replace rap superstar Kanye West, who pulled out of the show after the death of his mother.
