Bunton harbours TV dreams

Former Spice Girl Emma Bunton harbours dreams of starring in her own TV show.

The singer got a taste of a TV career last month when she acted as an assistant to pop star Dannii Minogue on hit talent contest 'The X Factor'.

Bunton helped the Aussie judge choose this year's hopefuls to go through to the show's live finals.

But she admits she finds filming for TV more terrifying than performing to a live crowd - because she doesn't have her former bandmates to support her.

She told 'Closer' magazine: "I love doing TV, you get such an adrenaline rush. I'd like my own show one day.

"But it's far more scary than doing a Spice Girls gig - I don't have my best friends next to me."
