Emma Bunton Not Ready For Reunion

Emma Bunton won't tour with the Spice Girls while her son is so young.

The singer has ruled out taking part in a series of reunion concerts with her fellow bandmates because she couldn't bear to be parted from her two-year-old son Beau - who she has with her singer-turner-chef partner Jade Jones - for such long periods of time.

She said: "I love making music, but you have to tour and you have to work very, very hard. Having my little boy now, I can't imagine going off on tour for months on end. I feel very lucky that I'm able to dip my toe into all different things."

Emma is currently working on the judging panel of British reality show 'Dancing On Ice', and also has her own radio show.

The Spice Girls - also consisting of Mel B, Mel C, Victoria Beckham and Geri Halliwell - embarked on their first reunion tour in December 2007, when Beau was just three months old.

Emma believes this was only manageable because the five women were able to take their loved-ones with them as they travelled around the world.

She said: "Looking back, I'm not quite sure how I coped. Having Beau and Jade with me was very important. Also, being with the other girls made it a lot easier - we had all our children there and helped each other out. There's nothing like being on a stage with the other girls."

The Spice Girls originally split up in 2001, seven years after their formation.
