Best known as “Baby Spice”, Emma Bunton achieved world wide fame in the 1990s as one fifth of the internationally acclaimed girl band the Spice Girls. Emma joined all-female singing group ‘Touch’ in 1994, replacing Michelle Stephenson, and shortly afterwards Touch changed their name to the ‘Spice Girls’.
Emma’s childhood ambition to be a singer, in the mould of such pop stars as Madonna, almost happened overnight when the Spice Girls debut single “Wannabe” became a global hit in 1995 catapulting the group to international fame. The Spice Girls sold millions of albums and performed to sell-out crowds.
After the group went their separate ways in 2001, Emma Bunton continued to make music, releasing her debut solo, A Girl Like Me. The album debuted and peaked at number four on the UK Albums Chart with 21,500 copies sold in its first week. This was followed by her second album Free Me, released in 2003 which spent over twelve weeks inside the UK Albums Chart.
Outside of her musical career, Emma Bunton has become a popular and much loved television and radio personality. In October 2006, Emma was a contestant on Strictly Come Dancing, finishing third place in the semi-final. In 2009, she began as a radio presenter on the Heart Breakfast show in London with Jamie Theakston and presents her own show on Saturday between 5 and 7pm.
Emma has also branched out as a spokesperson for public safety and as a songwriter.
