Jessie J and Tinie Tempah were spotted rehearsing at the Ford car plant in Dagenham, east London this week.

All five of The Spice Girls - Victoria Beckham, Geri Haliwell, Mel B, Mel C and Emma Bunton – were also seen running through a song on top of London black cab taxis, seemingly confirming long running reports that they will appear.

Organisers have kept Sunday's spectacular a closely guarded secret, but they have promised the closing ceremony would be "full of amazing British music" .

Music director David Arnold, who has composed the music for five James Bond films, has spent two years working on the event with a team that includes Kim Gavin – the man behind Take That's 2011 'Progress' tour.

In addition to the live performances, the closing ceremony will also feature the extinguishing of the Olympic flame and official handover to Rio De Janeiro in Brazil, where the next Games will take place in 2016.
