Emma Bunton, a former member of the girl group Spice Girls, was born and raised in North London. She attended primary school but did not pursue a university education. Emma made her first TV appearance on “EastEnders”, a popular BBC soap opera, at the age of 16. Over the next year, she would have minor appearances on BBC shows, but she got her big break in 1994 when she responded to an advertisement in The Stage magazine.
Emma became a Spice Girl after two previous women had a lack of commitment. After a rocky beginning with finding management that would listen, the Spice Girls released their debut single “Wannabe” in 1996. It skyrocketed to number 1 in 35 countries and became the biggest-selling song by a female group. Four years later the Spice Girls parted ways after deciding to focus on their solo careers.
While the popular girl group has had numerous reunions, Emma has successfully established herself as both a solo artist by releasing chart-ranking songs and a TV personality by making appearances on a plethora of shows. Her career is equally fantastic as her personal life, but it wasn’t always like that. A Spice Girl has to have a spicy dating history, right?
