Victoria Beckham wowed fans as she shared a throwback photo to celebrate Spice Girls bandmate Melanie Chisholm’s birthday.

.

The 47-year-old singer-turned-designer took to Instagram to pay tribute to Mel C – aka Sporty Spice – as she marked her 48th birthday on Wednesday.

While the day itself was of course a celebration of Mel, Vicky couldn’t resist drawing some of the attention to herself by sharing a photo that included her too.

The star – known as Posh Spice although she’s refused to perform with her bandmates since 2012 – shared a fashion photo from the vaults to mark Mel’s day.

The chosen image was from an old issue of Vogue magazine from back in the day when the Spice Girls were in their chart topping heyday.

Snapped by shamed 67-year-old fashion photographer Mario Testino – who is battling a string of sexual harassment allegations against him, allegations that he strongly denies – Vicky and Mel gave their best model poses for the camera.

The pair posed against a baby blue backdrop – with Victoria looking blankly towards the camera while wearing a simple black dress, and Mel peeking curiously from beneath her own extra long fringe while wearing a black top and light blue trousers.

Fans were delighted by the throwbacks snaps – with many gushing over how well Mel is ageing.

One fan remarked in the comments section of Victoria’s Instagram post: "She hasn’t changed at all! Still an icon.”

Another suggested: “Mel looks like lady Gaga here!”

A further fan hinted that they feel that they don’t make pop stars like they used to, commenting: “Perfection and so nostalgic.”

And another remarked at the incredibly youthful completions of both Mel and Vicky, exclaiming in the comments: “My goodness, babies.”

Geri Halliwell also shared a photo of Mel to celebrate her birthday.

Ginger Spice uploaded a photo of herself pretending to throttle her bandmate and wrote: “Happy Birthday to my spice sister and beautiful friend… Love you.”

While Mel herself shone the spotlight on fellow singer Pixie Lott – who also celebrates her birthday on the same day, turning 31.

He uploaded snaps to Instagram Stories and wrote: “Happy birthday to my wonderful trailblazer of a sister!

“Have a beautiful day and stop thinking about everyone else for a day @melaniecmusic and do some backflips and sh*t!”

Fan pages from around the world also rushed to wish Mel many happy returns – with the star then re-sharing many of the loving posts herself via her Instagram Stories feed.

Fans of Mel will soon be able to see her back on TV – as she announced on her birthday that she is set to be a guest judge on upcoming reality show RuPaul's Drag Race: UK Versus The World which begins airing on BBC Three on February 1.
