Host Suzanne Godley said: ‘The Spice Girls were my childhood obsession.
‘My parents were subjected to my tone-deaf performances as Baby Spice, and I must have watched the Spice World movie hundreds of times.
‘And while I have grown up over the years, I don’t think I’ve ever grown out of my love for them.
‘When my boss mentioned that he was considering buying the Spice Bus I was desperate to be a part of its renovation.
‘We’ve worked hard over the past few months to turn the bus into a home, in keeping with its legacy, and I’m so excited to open it up to the public with the support of Airbnb.
‘Being part of this project has been like a dream come true and I can’t wait to meet other Spice Girls fans through this experience.’
Hadi Moussa, general manager for Northern Europe at Airbnb, said: ‘Whether travelling to a new city or re-discovering a familiar destination, Airbnb is all about helping people find unique and unforgettable travel experiences.
‘Being one of the first people in the world to stay in the iconic Spice Bus is a dream come true for any fan and a once-in-a-lifetime way to spend time with friends or family.’

At the end of the movie, the bus is destroyed by a bomb.
Given the high level of interest anticipated, Suzanne will be adding more available dates from 8am on Wednesday, May 22, to give as many fans as possible the chance to book.
This summer, Wembley Park, where the bus will be stationed for the duration of the stay, is running a free outdoor summer screening programme from May 31 to July 23 during which a series of iconic films will be shown, including Spice World on June 13, 14 and 15.
The original bus was restored last year before Suzanne bought it by South East Coachworks in Faversham. To view the Spice Bus listing on Airbnb, visit airbnb.co.uk/spicebus.
