The Spice Girls have released a new version of their iconic Spice Up Your Life music video to mark the 25th anniversary of their second album.
The reinvented three minute clip was created entirely from unseen footage from the original video shoot.
The track was part of their multi-million selling second album Spiceworld which was initially released back in November 1997 and featured some of the girl group’s biggest tracks including Too Much and Stop.

The Spice Girls are set to release a special edition of the iconic album Spiceworld to mark 25 years since it hit the charts.
Speaking on the celebration, the band said: ‘The ‘Spiceworld’ era was such a fun time for us; we’d just had a number one album with Spice, we were travelling all over the world and meeting our amazing fans, we released our second album AND we had our very own movie!’
The girls added: ‘Who would’ve thought it? It’s crazy to think that 25 years have passed.’
Mel B, Emma Bunton, Geri Halliwell, Victoria Beckham and Melanie C all look incredible in the unseen footage.

Spiceworld spent three weeks at No. 1 on the Official Charts UK album chart and sold 192,000 copies in the UK the first week it was released, passing a million sales after just eight weeks
SPICEWORLD 25 will be available on several formats, including a 2CD/hardback book package, as well as vinyl and cassette versions.
It will include fan favourite Step To Me, which was originally the soundtrack of a soft drinks campaign starring the girls back in 1997.
While the special album will also include a 15-minute megamix, called Spice Girls Party Mix, of the bands biggest hits.
The 25th anniversary album release follows the reports that the Spice Girls are set to headline Glastonbury next year.

Music industry sources say talks are well advanced, prompting the question of whether Victoria Beckham – Posh Spice – will join in the Worthy Farm mudfest next year.
Melanie Chisholm – known better as Sporty Spice – strongly hinted at her book launch at London’s Ivy Club last week that despite insisting she would never sing to a crowd again, Mrs Beckham, 48, would not turn down the chance to star on the Pyramid stage.
The fashion designer has repeatedly snubbed band reunions and the last time she performed with them was at the closing ceremony of the London 2012 Olympics.
The girl group said: ‘Who would’ve thought it? It’s crazy to think that 25 years have passed.’
A source said: ‘The negotiations are ongoing but they have reached a stage where things are really looking likely, with or without Victoria. The Spice Girls are not a band to typically perform at Glastonbury but they are legendary and it will be so much fun.’
Those who know Mrs Beckham well say she has resisted joining any reunions, including the 2019 tour, because she thought it might affect the reputation of her fashion label. She has also been fed up with her voice being scrutinised.
But friends say that as she nears 50, she no longer cares what people think about her.

She also faces pressure from husband David, who loves Glastonbury – so much so that the pair went there as part of their 20th wedding anniversary celebrations in 2019.
The Say You’ll Be There singers formed in 1994 and went on to become the best-selling girl group of all time, but Geri Horner suddenly left the band in 1998 and the remaining members went their separate ways in 2000.
All five members reunited for a string of arena shows in 2007 and they got back together again to play at 13 stadiums across the UK in 2019, with the exception of Victoria, who declined to take part in a second reunion.
