Emma Bunton limped through Heathrow Airport in London on crutches as her Spice Girls bandmates Geri Halliwell, Melanie Brown, Melanie Chisholm and Victoria Beckham touched down on home soil for the UK leg of their tour. The girls joined Richard Branson to open Virgin Atlantic’s Terminal Six.
Geri told the audience, “I just want to say, we’ve been out in Vancouver, we’ve done a bit of America, but as there is no place like home and we are so excited (to be here).”
When Emma came out, she explained her crutches telling the audience, “I actually slipped over the other night on stage, which was very embarrassing, but I’m doing everything. I’m actually seeing David Beckham’s doctor, so I’m praying that I’ll be fine Saturday.”
