Former Spice Girl Emma Bunton posted a Christmas message to fans on her official website. She writes:
Hi there, Emma here: just wanted to wish you all a very Happy Christmas and a brilliant New Year. Hope you have a wonderful time over the holidays and get everything you hoped for! I’ve really been getting into the Christmas spirit this year – I even did most of my present shopping in advance. And Christmas In Popworld and singing ‘White Christmas’ at the Nordoff Christmas Carol Concert just got me feeling totally festive. This year, I’m going to be spending time at home with my family which I’m really looking forward to. It’s going to be very chilled, but that’s perfect because I’m going to need tons of energy for next year as it’s going to be a biggie! I can’t wait for you to hear ‘I’ll Be There’ and the rest of the album. I’m so happy with it, I reckon you’ll think it’s been worth the wait – you’ll be able to get to hear everything in the New Year. Fingers crossed you love it. I also wanted to say thanks for all your support this year, it’s been phenomenal. You’ve made ’03 such a memorable time for me and I’ll never forget it. So here’s to ’04, see you very soon.
Lots of love.
