Tell you what we want, what we really really want . . .

A collection of Spice Girls memorabilia collected by a Yorkshire fan is on its way to Leeds.

Liz West began collecting at the age of 11 and has amassed almost 4,000 objects, including clothes worn by the band members in their heyday.

Items set to go on display include the Union Flag boots worn by Geri Halliwell in Spiceworld: The Movie, Emma Bunton's blue sequin dress from the 1997 Brit Awards and Mel B's giraffe print catsuit.

Spiceworld: The Exhibition is coming to Leeds City Museum on Friday January 28 and will run until July 3.

Liz, from Barnsley, said: "Popular music is directly related to people's personal histories and whilst the Spice Girls connect with my own youth, I hope the exhibition will act as a trigger to allow the public to recall past memories.

"I am looking forward to seeing the public's reaction to the Spice Girls exhibition – it will be a great experience for all the family."

The museum's curator of exhibitions Helen Langwick said: "Whether you are a Spice Girl fan or not this free exhibition is sure to trigger lots of memories from their heyday when you couldn't move for seeing and hearing them seemingly everywhere."

The Spice Girls split in 2002. Leeds-born Mel B now lives in Los Angeles.
