Hope you had lovely Christmases too and that Santa brought you everything you were hoping for!

For me, the funniest part was meeting up with Mel C beforehand. We ended up getting ready together and having a total scream – just like the old days!”
FHM magazine caught up with Emma Bunton for a Q&A and asked how sharing bathrooms was with four other girls while she was with the Spice Girls. “It was bloody hard,” Baby Spice admitted. “You never got in there if you didn’t push and shove. But the Spice Girls had fun. We’d have pillow fights and do dares. One time in an L.A. hotel, Mel C dared us to streak down the hallway with nothing to cover ourselves but tiny washcloths. We had to run down the corridor, touch the far wall, turn and run back. We almost made it when the elevator doors opened on our floor. There were people in the elevator, but nobody got out. They must have been in shock.”
