A Mother's Day sing-along to the Spice Girls at a Norfolk primary school attracted the attention and approval of one of the pop starlets' parents.

Howard Junior School in King’s Lynn staged a performance of Mama by the 90s group, featuring songstresses Victoria Beckham, Emma Bunton, Mel B (Brown), Mel C (Chisholm) and Geri Halliwell.

The Gaywood school shared a video of the performance in Friday’s assembly on Twitter – and got a surprise “like” from Bunton’s mother, Pauline Bunton.

She retweeted the video to her 6,300 followers with the message: “And that’s what it’s all about.”

As well as a school sing-along to Mama – which featured on the Spice Girls’ 1996 album Spice and was the official 1997 Comic Relief single – pupils at Howard Junior took a rose home on Friday with a message for their mum while some also made Mother’s Day cards in class.
