Fifteen years the Spice Girls and Liam Gallagher were trading insults in the press and at awards shows.
But it appears time and growing older has soothed old wounds as the former Nineties foes ended up partying together at the Olympics Closing Ceremony after-party last night.
Despite their past, four out of five of the Spice Girls ended up chatting and posing for photos with the former Oasis frontman following their performances at the Olympic Stadium.
All is forgiven: Spice Girls Emma Bunton, Geri Halliwell, Melanie Chisholm, and Melanie Brown cosy up to Liam Gallagher at a Closing Ceremony after-party
Party until dawn: Mel, Geri, Emma and Liam and Muse drummer Dominic Howard were still partying when the sun came up

She tweeted: 'Love @liamgallagher “come and 'ave a go!”'

Liam famously started a war of words
with the Spice Girls in 1997 when he declared he wouldn't go the Brit
Awards because 'if I bump into the Spice Girls I will smack them'.
As the five-piece accepted their Brit
Award that year, Mel C challenged Liam to criticise them face-to-face,
shouting: 'Come and 'ave a go if you think you're hard enough.'
While 'Baby Spice' and 'Ginger
Spice' had changed out of their on-stage ensembles for the party, 'Scary Spice' was
still wearing her Zuhair Murad catsuit.

Emma tweeted: 'Party till the break of dawn, and Mel is still l in her outfit.'
At 3am this morning, Mel C tweeted: 'OMG so sad @OfficialMelB get changed!!!'
And at 6am, she added: 'ffs @OfficialMelB it's done, get changed lol! x x.'
Together again: Victoria tweeted a photo of them backstage after the performance
That was a trip! Victoria tweeted a photo of her leaving the stadium after their performance, saying she was 'totally overwhelmed'
It appears Victoria Beckham didn't stay long after the festivities, as she was noticeably absent from most of the party photos.
Victoria, who has always been open about that she has more passion for her fashion designing career than her musical one, wrote on her Twitter page: 'We did it!! I love u girls so much!!!!! xxx vb.
'I was a pop star for the night!! I love u @MelanieCmusic, @OfficialMelB, @GeriHalliwell, @EmmaBunton!! we did it!! X vb.'
Enjoying the limelight: The Spice Girls reunited for one night only at the ceremony
Victoria was also thrilled to see model Georgia Jagger wearing one of her dresses during the fashion tribute.
She tweeted: 'Thank you @bfc, Lucinda Chambers, @BritishVogue, Nick Knight, @GeorgiamJagger looked amazing!! .'
Geri was also active on Twitter, tweeting: 'That was amazing!!!! Thank you all , we love you!! XX.'
During their short performance at the ceremony, the Spice Girls performed a mash-up of Wannabe and Spice Up Your Life.
