The Spice Girls kicked off their long awaited reunion tour in front of 58,000 fans in Dublin on Friday. The iconic 90s girlband - consisting of Emma Bunton, Melanie Brown, Mel C and Geri Horner (centre) took to the stage together for the first time as a foursome at Croke Park, after Victoria Beckham opted out of the reunion tour. Mel C (left) embraced her Sporty alter-ego with a futuristic look that embraced her toned physique, while Geri (bottom right) embodied Elsa with a blue Frozen-esque gown. Mel B's performance also came after she was rushed to hospital last week as she complained about being 'totally blind' (top right with Emma Bunton). The show also sparked walkouts by many angry fans, who complained that they could not hear any of the songs due to sound issues (bottom insert).
Meghan snubs Trump: Prince Harry and the Queen will meet US President for a private lunch during State Visit - but Duchess of Sussex will stay at home with Archie
The Duchess of Sussex (top with the Queen and Harry), was a vocal critic of Donald Trump (bottom) in the past and once branded him a 'misogynist'. She will not be joining Prince Harry and the Queen for a private lunch with the president on the first day of his state visit to the UK on June 3. Instead, she will stay at home with baby Archie. In 2016, then-Suits actress Meghan campaigned against Mr Trump becoming president and instead backed Hillary Clinton for the position. She said: 'I'm voting for Hillary Clinton, not because she is a woman, but because Trump has made it easy to see that you don't really want that kind of world that he's painting.' Buckingham Palace today released the itinerary for the president's three-day visit to the UK, which will see him and first lady Melania also having tea with the Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall at Clarence House before visiting Downing Street for talks with Prime Minister Theresa May.
You'd need a heart of granite not to feel for her: HENRY DEEDES on Theresa May's fateful resignation speech which was rigid, reticent, unremarkable - until she turned on the tap
HENRY DEEDES: Theresa May (pictured) tried her best to hold it together. But in the end it was all too much. Officially, the Prime Minister resigned yesterday morning at 10.05am. But those watching her announcement will have realised that it was actually an eviction that had been set in motion many weeks ago. To many on her own side, she had already long outstayed her welcome. For Theresa May, it was never meant to turn out this way. In her mind, she wanted to be the person who would unite her party, free Britain from the shackles of Brussels and lead us all into a sparkling future.
And they're off! From Brexiteers to Remainers, who'll be the first past the post to become the next Prime Minister if Boris blows it
Who's in the lead? Here the Daily Mail analyses the race for Number 10 from Brexiteers (left) to Remainers (right). Boris Johnson is in the lead with odds 5/4, but he will need to secure sufficient support from Tory MPs to make it to the final round. Coming up behind him is Dominic Raab with 6/1 odds, followed by Environment Secretary Michael Gove. Languishing at the bottom of the pile are Sir Graham Brady and No Deal obsessive Steve Baker, both with odds 100/1.
Boris's No Deal threat: Tory favourite says it's time to put Brexit to bed and we WILL have left by October 31, as he launches his bid to replace Theresa May as PM
Setting out his pitch to be leader just hours after Theresa May announced her departure (pictured), the UK's former foreign secretary said it was time to 'put Brexit to bed'. Mr Johnson is the early favourite to take over, but he faces a mounting 'Stop Boris' campaign from MPs who oppose him. At an economic conference in Switzerland, he yesterday ruled out any further delays beyond the end of October, when the latest extension is due to expire. He said: 'We will leave the EU on October 31, deal or no deal.' But Mr Johnson risks creating a hostage to fortune because he could be forced to call a general election to deliver on his promise. Dominic Grieve yesterday threatened that he and other Tory MPs could help sink a Johnson-led government that pursued No Deal.
JAN MOIR: At first, she was valiant. Then her voice faltered like a plucked heartstring. Did Mrs May show weakness? No, sometimes big girls DO cry
No, no, please don't cry. Not now. Anything but that. For most of her resignation speech outside Downing Street, Theresa May managed to keep it together. Her diction was crisp, her delivery was brisk, her manner was forthright, almost valiant. She was all business, as usual. For three winters and four summers, for over a thousand days in office, her troubled premiership has been marked by an absence of emotion that had something of the polar freeze about it. And then when the thaw finally came, it was terrible to behold.
DOMINIC SANDBROOK: Friendless. Tortured. And with her agonising end, Mrs May's political tragedy was like no other
NEW DOMINIC SANDBROOK: The story of almost every modern premiership can be told as a two- act tragedy. Act One. A car sweeps into Downing Street and out climbs the hero of the hour. Wreathed in smiles, a picture of confidence and vigour, the new master (or mistress) of British politics walks to the microphone, delivers a few inspirational soundbites and steps inside the famous black door. Act Two. The door opens, and our hero re-emerges. But now the face is pale and haggard, the eyes puffy, the voice weary and disappointed. The long struggle for survival is over. The torture chamber has claimed its latest victim.
Meghan's mission to be Made In Chelsea: Thought hooking Harry was a happy coincidence? Her PR advisers and C-list friends reveal it all began with plans to bag a Brit... and to star in a posh TV reality show
Not long before she was introduced to her Prince, you could find her cosying up to a male model on the red carpet, flirting on social media with a former X Factor winner and deliberating whether to go on a date with footballer Ashley Cole (top right). Of course, hanging out with D-listers was never really going to be the right fit for ambitious and sophisticated Meghan Markle. But her determination to climb the celebrity ladder - and to jettison anyone who did not fit into the parameters of her new persona - provides a fascinating insight into Meghan's mindset. Pictured: Model Oliver Cheshire and Meghan on the red carpet in 2013 (left); Meghan riding bikes with her once close friend Millie Mackintosh; Meghan being interviewed by Lizzie Cundy in 2013, the presenter says the Duchess 'ghosted' her; Meghan complimented x Factor winner Matt Cardle (bottom right).
The illegitimate son of an aristocrat raised in gypsy caravans who underwent a nailbiting DNA battle in search of his true parentage reveals the astounding moment he found out he was to the £50MILLION manor born
Jordan Adlard Rogers, 31 (pictured right with his partner Katie and their son Joshua), discovered he was the illegitimate son of late aristocrat Charles Rogers. Last August he discovered he was the heir to a £50million Penrose manor in Cornwall (centre inset). His late father, Charles Rogers (bottom right) was the last in line of an illustrious family, who have lived in the grade II-listed home since 1771. His mother Julie Adlard (top right) was 18 when she met Charles Rogers, 31, at the common in Porthleven. Although hailing from different worlds, they struck up a rapport and started a relationship.

Mel shocked fans by swearing during the action-packed show before twerking against a backing dancer wearing her iconic leopard print catsuit.

Unveiling her work at the Chelsea Flower Show this week, Kate, 37, said: 'I really feel that nature and being interactive outdoors has huge benefits on our physical and mental well-being, particularly for young children.'

The supposed ex-prisoner, who walked free in a grey tracksuit ensemble and clutching a clear bag of his possessions, grinned from ear to ear as his mates slapped him on the back and embraced him (left). High-fives were exchanged (bottom right) before the unknown man posed in front of a camera-phone outside Standford Hill Prison on the Isle of Sheppey in Kent before hopping into the backseat of the exclusive Rolls Royce (top right).

My Countdown to a baby! Rachel Riley announces she's pregnant with her first child with Strictly partner Pasha Kovalev
Rachel Riley has announced that she's pregnant and expecting her first child with partner Pasha Kovalev in December. The Countdown star, 33, who is roughly two to three months gone, took to Instagram to reveal the news as she used the Channel 4 setting as a fun backdrop. Posing in front of a board of letters, which spelt out 'r tiny mate', which is an anagram for 'maternity', she placed her hands on her blossoming baby bump.

One UK fast food chain only gives you 12 chips while another dishes out 152: As the Government tries to shrink portion sizes we prove who really is the Lord of the Fries
Who really serves the best fries? The Daily Mail's Etan Smallman headed out onto the high street to try chips from 10 different restaurants to find out which gives you the most chips. McDonald's (top left) serves a reasonable 48 chips per medium fries portion, one more than KFC (top right) which served 47. Leon (Bottom left) served the least fries in its portion with a paltry 12 while Burger Kind (Top centre) served 61, local shop London Best Kebab (Bottom right) served 92 and Byron chips (Centre bottom) served the most at 98.
The bed hopping bride of Blenheim: She's always been portrayed as the wronged chatelaine of one of Britain's grandest houses - but now a sensational letter has exposed the affairs that tortured her husband
A never-before published letter details how Consuelo (left) told the Duke (bottom right with a friend and Consuelo), just a few years into their marriage, that she was deeply in love with New York socialite Winthrop Rutherford (inset). The letter overturns the shockingly dishonest account of the marriage that Consuelo gave in her memoir, The Glitter And The Gold. The Duke, for his part, was also in love with someone else, but married Consuelo, with the approval of his family, because they were on their uppers and the vast income the marriage guaranteed meant that Blenheim (top right) would be saved for future generations. The union was a disaster and the couple, who had two sons, separated after 11 years.
Two WWI heroes made the first transatlantic flight fuelled only by sandwiches, a flask of coffee and raw courage to win £10,000 Daily Mail prize. So why 100 years on is Britain doing nothing to remember these magnificent men?
ROBERT HARDMAN: Next month is the hundredth anniversary of John Alcock's (inset, left) and Arthur Whitten Brown's (inset, right) first successful transatlantic flight aboard the Vickers Vimy (pictured) from Newfoundland to Clifden, Connemara, County Galway Ireland. So how is Britain honouring this great landmark? Astonishingly (some might say predictably), next month's centenary will go virtually unnoticed. The Science Museum, which owns the original record-breaking aircraft, is doing nothing. Ireland, however, is putting Britain to shame. A week-long festival is planned in Clifden, the delightful Connemara town near their marshy landing spot. Pictured bottom right: Alcock and Whitten Brown are handed a £10,000 cheque, sponsored by the Daily Mail, by Winston Churchill for completing their journey.

That's fresh thinking! Revolutionary new edible food coating made from seeds and fruit pulp will stop bananas going mouldy and veg shrivelling up
Fruit and vegetables will stay fresh for up to three times longer thanks to a new 'natural and edible' coating hailed as a breakthrough against food waste. It is made from plant-derived materials found in seeds and fruit pulp and forms a natural oxygen barrier preventing everything from bananas to avocados from decaying so quickly. The coating also means fresh produce can be sold by supermarkets without the need for plastic, which could remove millions of tonnes of waste packaging.

A Princess Diana moment! Melania battles the wind ahead of her flight to Japan, as she pays tribute to American culture in a $3,900 Calvin Klein dress featuring postcards of the West
Melania, 49, and her husband, President Donald Trump, 72, will be spending Memorial Day weekend in Tokyo during their four-day state visit that's tied to the enthronement of the new Japanese emperor. Melania donned a white Calvin Klein button-down shirt dress featuring postcards of images from the American West for her flight. The former model had a bit of a Princess Diana moment on the South Lawn of the White House when the breeze hit her dress and caused it to cling to her legs. It was reminiscent of the famous backlit photo of the late royal wearing a see-through skirt, which was taken when she was Prince Charles's girlfriend in 1980 (inset). The president and first lady traveled to Joint Base Andrews in Maryland on Marine One before boarding Air Force One for their flight to Japan. They are the first state guests of Emperor Naruhito, who ascended to the Chrysanthemum Throne on May 1, following his father's early abdication.

Door bell camera footage shows the man hammering on door of the home of the son of Dennis Macleod, 80, in Waterloo, Liverpool, on Tuesday evening. On answering, he told Mr Macleod, 'you're spitting on my car' but the old man denied it. He then added: 'You were f****ing' seen!' and moments later, dragged him down the front path to the car immediately outside the gate. As he dragged him, he said: 'You will clean the f***ing you horrible little b*****rd!'. When Mr Macleod called for his son, Ian, to call the police, an unidentified woman appeared to usher the aggressive man away. Son Iain Macleod said his father had been house-sitting for him while he was on holiday and insisted that his father could not have spat on the car because the pair were catching up inside the house after his holiday.

Just off the lead! Competitive stray DOG accidentally competes in university 100m race and nearly takes victory
The competitive canine accidentally wandered on to the track during a Beifang University sports event in Ningxia Hui, China, today. And fortunately a spectator captured the barking mad sight of the pooch tearing down its lane and leaving most of the athletes in its dust. Spectacularly, with its sights firmly set on the finish, it bounds past several competitors before charging over the line. A slow motion replay of footage taken from the finish shows the pooch took third place after losing to a runner in lane 10 and narrowly being pipped by a student in lane two.
