Emma Bunton, also known as Baby Spice, is a British singer-songwriter and television promoter. She was born on 21 January 1976. She was a member of girl group the Spice Girls. She gained her nickname from being the youngest member of the group and also because she looked young. She was a contestant in the 2006 series of Strictly Come Dancing. She is also the host of the Heart FM Saturday evening show from 4pm to 7pm.

On 12 August 2012, the Spice Girls performed a medley of "Wannabe" and "Spice Up Your Life" at the 2012 Summer Olympics closing ceremony. They got back together just for the event.[1] Their performance was the most tweeted moment of the Olympics closing ceremony with over 116,000 tweets on Twitter per minute. [2]
