Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice's musical, Jesus Christ Superstar will feature a Spice Girl later this year.

One-time Wannabe singer Melanie Chisholm is set to appear as Mary Magdalene in a forthcoming production.

Mel (or Sporty Spice to her mates), who enjoyed hits with the likes of Spice Up Your Life and Say You'll Be There with the mega girl band, has called the move "one of my most exciting challenges to date". She has solo form too – with singles like I Turn To You and Northern Star.

Also on board for Superstar are Tim Minchin, the man who recently had music penning duties on Matilda, and Chris Moyles (a presenter on Radio One) – tackling Judas and Herod respectively.

Webber and Rice also famously collaborated on the musicals Evita (another pop star, Madonna, famously took the lead role in the film version of that show) and Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat (which has featured Jason Donovan and Donny Osmond).
