Hollywood star Blake Lively has proved she's the ultimate Spice Girls fan in a throwback picture that's surfaced online.
Twitter user Bria re-discovered an old photo of her posing with a 'Baby Spice lookalike' outside a concert twenty years ago - and on closer inspection realised it was none other than Blake Lively.
Posting the picture to social media, Bria wrote: "Found a picture when I was 5 at my first concert. Spice Girls and took a picture with a girl dressed up as Baby Spice who I just realized now was Blake Lively."
It wasn't long before the incredible image went viral, with Blake herself cottoning on and responding: "My secret is out..."
The actress, who is married to Deadpool star Ryan Reynolds, then promptly shared the image on her own social media account, and wrote: "Pretending to be someone else... since 1997 (Thanks Bria for the photo of us at the Spice Girls concert. Sorry -not sorry- I tricked you into thinking I was Emma Bunton).
And, despite it being twenty years later, Blake still failed to contain her fangirl side when Emma Bunton responded: "So cute, you’re rocking those pigtails @blakelively!"
Blake wasted no time in freaking out and typed back: "Forever bowing down to you. I cannot believe you know who I am. This will never be normal."
