Heart London's Emma Bunton revealed what she's most excited about ahead of the Spice Girls' 2019 tour.

Emma Bunton can't wait to share a stage with her Spice Girl bandmates next year.

Speaking on Tuesday's Heart Breakfast, the 42-year-old revealed that last night she met up with Mel B, Mel C and Geri Horner for a post-tour announcement get together - and that emotions were running high.

She said: "We got together last night, just us four and we all screamed out loud. We hugged and screamed. I can’t believe it’s happening. 

"Just being up on stage and looking to my left and write and seeing Scary, Sporty and Ginger will be so special.

"I can’t breathe it’s been so exciting."

Yesterday the Spice Girls confirmed that they are going on a six-date tour in 2019, with a final show at Wembley in June.

Support is coming from vocal powerhouse Jess Glynne, and Emma revealed that she is just as excited as the girls.

She told co-host Jamie Theakston: "Jess text me yesterday, ‘oh my goodness, a little girl’s dream just came true’."

The shows next year will be the first time since the band performed since the closing ceremony of the 2012 Olympics.

Emma admitted that the girls' showstopping performance, which saw each of them singing on top of a London cab, was a nerve-wracking experience.

She said: "I was so nervous, my legs were like jelly when I was on top of that taxi, I thought I was going to fall off."

Fans that can't wait until next summer for their Spicy fix should tune in to Heart London Breakfast tomorrow - Emma will be joined by the REST of the band.

Jamie quipped: "First time I interviewed you was 22 years ago I don't think we've changed at all.

"Who'd have thought back then that we would still be talking about the Spice Girls 22 years later?"

Emma laughed: "Tomorrow is going to be really good fun."
