Meanwhile a dignified old lady in Balmoral is quite relieved to not be here...

Oh Warren, we're enjoying ourselves. (I'm seriously worried that Cliff Richard might put on an appearance.)

Not all. First time round Jessie was not lip singing, she stopped singing and there was nothing in the background.

This would be the Spice Girls I believe from rehearsal they're standing on black abs.

The athletes aren't 'penned in'. They're essentially in mosh pits and have done what everyone in a mosh pit does - crowded up to the front. There's more room at the back of each segment if they want it.

Too many of the athletes are too busy trying to record their own videos and take pictures of the whole thing, instead of just enjoying it.

Well, we do. Although I prefer watching BBC's coverage online.
My parents and sister are definitely struggling - and my sister lived in Britain for 4 years (studying at Cambridge).

Great stuff!
Spices are here. They may be good.

Will Victoria give us a smile?

Probably Henry's cup of tea.

Oh.My.God. - David Cameron and Boris Johnson dancing to Spice Girls.

Singing ‘Spice up your life’ now.
OK, I was apprehensive of this particular appearance, but I suddenly got so nostalgic. Actually enjoying the song!

I'm surprised at how many of the words I can remember of these songs, and I wasn't even much of a Spice Girl fan.

When the Spice Girls didn't perform at the opening ceremony, there was LOADS of people on Twitter etc. who were seriously annoyed. Hopefully they've calmed down now.

Beady Eye - a.k.a Oasis without Noel Gallagher.
