Emma Bunton Surprises Spice Girls Super-Fans

A new generation of SPICE they created…

A video of Emma Bunton surprising a group of Spice Girls super-fans has hit the internet and it is AMAZING!

The BuzzFeed clip sees four die-hard Spice fans explaining how important Scary, Baby, Ginger, Sporty and Posh were to them growing up and what impact the Spice Girls had on their lives.

Unbeknown to the fans, Emma was hidden behind a screen listening to their stories, before jumping out to surprise them.

Once the shocked and hysterical fans had calmed down, they each took the opportunity to tell Bunton just what she and her fellow Spice Girls meant to them.

“I really think that you guys formed a whole entire generation of women who believed in themselves because you existed.” devoted fan Ashly told Emma.

Whilst another told Bunton “As a young gay kid, it was a thing of like, ‘Oh, I’m different’. And then I would read about you guys and what you guys went through and I was like, ‘You know what? I’m gonna be gay and own it’.”

When asked what being in the Spice Girls meant to her, Emma said “It was an incredible time, but it was amazing to watch other women and girls – it was so nice to have that support from fans and people who believed in what we were doing.”

“We just felt like we had a message, we had great music. Just writing our own songs was really important to us because we wanted for you guys to identify with whatever we wrote.”

Pop icon Emma is currently in America appearing in ABC’s new talent show Boyband.
