Collins also celebrated her birthday by looking back on the last five years portraying Emily Cooper on Netflix's Emily in Paris.

"Celebrating today the most special way possible. I never could have imagined after [creator Darren Star] called me on my 30th asking me to be Emily that 5 years later, I’d be married to my favorite person with our hilarious pup visiting the set of season 4! 35 is my new favorite birthday already…" she wrote beside a photo of her husband Charlie McDowell visiting her on set with their dog.

Collins is a huge fan of the Spice Girls and attended the girl group's Spice World tour back in June 2019. In a video shared on her Instagram at the time, she could be seen in the crowd rocking a white Spice Girls T-shirt, a leopard-print skirt and Baby Spice-inspired pigtails.

“The moment they stepped on stage, I’m like…” Collins captioned the clip, which saw her screaming and mouthing the words, “Oh my f------ God,” at the camera.

Earlier this month, Mel B revealed that a Spice Girls reunion of some kind is “definitely” happening in 2024 during an appearance on U.K. talk show Loose Women.

After co-host Christine Lampard told Mel B, “We need happiness, we need empowerment back again, we need Spice Girls back basically," the musician responded, “Tell me about it... we are definitely doing something.”

“I’m probably going to get told off [for revealing that], but I’ve said it. There you go," the singer added. "I'm in trouble now."

Mel B’s comments came after the group celebrated their 30th anniversary earlier this month.
