Whether she’s hosting her Heart radio show, or presenting on TV, Emma Bunton is one busy lady. We caught up with her to chat family life, fashion secrets and why her other half Jade is very hands on with her latest project…

You’re launching a new girls’ clothing collection for Argos. Are you excited?
I can’t wait! We’ve gone really party this time around. Obviously I’ve got two boys [Beau and Tate] so I’m at parties and play dates all of the time and see the boys skidding round on the floor – whereas for girls it’s all about adding a bit of sparkle and glamour, while keeping it stylish.

Does designing for girls make you broody for a daughter?
The thing is my boys are very in to fashion. Beau’s great with colours and putting outfits together – I even ask him what he thinks when I’m getting ready. (Laughs) My little man is always helping me out! And even though Tate’s already three I can tell he enjoys it. So I don’t think about having a daughter just yet, as Tate is still my baby.

Does your partner, Jade, help you with the designs?
Absolutely. Jade is very good at it and has a great eye. He’s very much involved and comes to all of the meetings and really helps out.

Would he ever go shopping for you?
I don’t know if he’d go there – but he’s very good at helping. And he’s one of those people who can put on anything and still look cool.

Are you a high street girl, or a fan of designers?
I’m such a mix. The high street is brilliant and so fashionable, so I’m a big fan. Nowadays you don’t have to wear ridiculous amounts of money to wear something that’s just come off the catwalk, as everyone’s doing it so well. But – I have to say – with shoes I tend to go a bit more high fashion.

You and Jade have been together for years. What’s the secret to your long-lasting relationship?
We’re just great friends. We talk a lot, we laugh all the time and we get on so well. I feel very lucky. I think I fell in love with him when I first met him.

It was love at first sight…
Yes. For both of us it was just immediate and we knew we’d end up together. It was lovely.

Emma is launching a new 26 piece girls’ clothing collection for Autumn/Winter 2014, designed exclusively for Argos.

Beckham spent the first 32 years of his life in England, but America has become his home since he joined MLS team L.A. Galaxy in 2007. Both his home nation and his adopted nation has exceedingly difficult tasks in escaping from two of the toughest groups in the World Cup. Despite that, Beckham remains cautiously optimistic.

“The U.S. has gone into this World Cup on such a positive note,” he said on a phone call. “I think Jurgen [Klinsmann] has a professionalism that top managers have, and I think he’s a manager that knows what’s best for the team, what’s best for the players, and how to bring the players together.”

On the phone, no matter how much I was expecting it, it’s a little jarring to hear Beckham speak. His accent is delightful (he says “fink” instead of “think”) and, if you’ve never heard him speak, he sounds a little bit like if they made a British Muppet.

“But you know, it’s not hard to bring U.S. players together, because I think it’s in their blood,” he continued. “U.S. players are so proud of representing their country that when they go to a big tournament, they stick together like not many countries do. Going into something like this, I think that’s something they’ll need.”

The United States take on European powerhouses Germany and Portugal in Group G, along with Ghana, who have eliminated the U.S. from the last two World Cups. England face four-time World Cup champion Italy, two-time World Cup champion Uruguay, and upstart Costa Rica in a similarly packed group.

“With England, we’ve got a young team going into this, it’s fresh, it’s talented,” he said. “A lot depends on that first game [against Italy on June 14]. We have a chance. I mean, we’ve got a chance to get out of the group. And we’ll see what happens after that.”

Beckham just finished shooting a Showtime documentary, “David Beckham Into the Unknown,” a 90-minute film that follows Beckham and his friends as they travel around Brazil on motorcycles. Beckham wanted to explore Brazil, the host of this summer’s World Cup, but mostly he looked forward to taking the time for a boy’s trip.

“This is something that, A, I’ve never done before, and B, I’ve never been able to do before,” he said of the trip. “Obviously, you know, I’ve had a 22-year career in football, I’ve always been on a schedule. The fact that this was something I could do with friends…you know, I’ve never had a boy’s holiday. Something like this, for me, was a dream.”

He also talked about his wife, the pop singer Victoria Beckham, and if she was concerned about his motorcycle excursion through the jungles of Brazil.

“Worryingly enough,” he said, “[Victoria] was more worried about my hair and how it would hold up in the rain and humidity than she was about me being on the bike.”

Beckham’s latest venture is launching a new MLS team in Miami, a project that was just dealt a blow when Miami mayor Tomás Regalado​ vetoed a proposed plan to build the team’s stadium on the city’s waterfront. Beckham declined to talk about the mayor’s decision through a rep.

Beckham is on his way to China for work, but he will make it down to Brazil closer to the end of the World Cup. He promised his sons they would get to make the trip down for the tournament when they finished their school for the year.

Feisty new X Factor judge Mel B has already had a bust-up with boss Simon Cowell – about how she is determined to avoid arguments on the show.

The pair locked horns ­within days of her appointment last week, with Mel – famously known as Scary Spice – ­insisting: “I won’t be your Miss Nasty.”

And with them soon due travel around the UK ­together for auditions, they still ­cannot agree on her role and how she will come across to viewers.

Cowell wants the former Spice Girl to play the villain and act mean to contestants on the forthcoming series of the hit ITV show.

But she has refused, insisting that she won’t be his pantomime baddie.

Defiant Mel, 39, is also ­determined not to be bitchy towards fellow judge Cheryl Cole.

Cowell, 54, had been looking forward to their chemistry producing onscreen fireworks.

But a source close to Mel revealed: “There is no way she is going to do that bitchy thing with anyone and has told Simon so.

“He isn’t happy at all. He had hoped that viewers would flock to watch the ­bust-ups ­between the two women judges.

“Simon wants explosive television. He wants Mel to give people a hard time, to have great fall-outs.

“But as far as she’s concerned it’s a job and she doesn’t want to get herself wrapped up in controversy.

“Mel wants to be a grown up judge, a bit of a female version of Simon.

“She doesn’t want to be unnecessarily mean to anyone.

“She wants to find some good talent. If someone isn’t good enough, then she will tell them. But she is ­determined to stay positive with her feedback.

“Mel knows that she can’t be this mouthy, horrible ­person who whips up the ­controversy, because the X Factor is just too intense. She doesn’t want to be the one everyone is focusing on and can call the evil one.

“She has told Simon all this – but who knows who will win the argument.”

We can also reveal that, although Mel was not Cheryl’s first choice of to join the ­panel of judges, she is now looking forward to working with her.

Sources said that the former Girls Aloud star tried to get music mogul Cowell to sign Aussie singer Sia, 38, who had a No1 hit with Titanium.

But the show boss thought Sia was not well-known enough to be a judge.

Friends of Cheryl have ­revealed she is relieved that Cowell agreed to bring a ­second woman onto the judging table because at one point she looked like being the only one.

Original Girl Power champion Mel B is completing this year’s X Factor judging line-up and she won’t be mincing her words.

The Spice Girl lived up to her scary moniker when she guested on the panel in 2012 and this year she’s sticking around for the series.
Mel said: “Honesty is the best policy – right? And that’s what I’m going to bring more of this year, whether it’s spotting an incredible singer, giving someone a reality check or debating with Simon over who’s got it wrong!

“I can’t wait to get started and find some amazing talent.”

The X Factor creator, Simon Cowell is back on the frontline for the first time since 2010 said: “I am thrilled that Mel B has agreed to be a Judge. I thought she was fantastic as a guest Judge.

“She is feisty, opinionated and, I believe, will be a great mentor.”

Mel joins Simon, Cheryl Cole and Louis Walsh in the search for this year’s X Factor star.

The ever diplomatic Dermot O’Leary returns as host and he could have his work cut out with this year’s Judges.

BBC documentary featuring ex-England footballer in Brazil included encounters with a frog and a snake, plus hair concerns. David Beckham told his wife Victoria that he would wear a hat in the rainforest after she voiced concerns about his hair.

It was billed as David Beckham’s epic journey into the heart of the Amazon rainforest, but Michael Palin has branded the former England football captain a “wimp” after he was rattled on his debut BBC1 travelogue by a frog, a snake and concerns about his hair.

Beckham and three friends travelled to Rio de Janeiro, where they played beach volleyball with the locals, before journeying to the remote Yanomami tribe for the 90-minute film masterminded my Beckham’s marketing guru, Simon Fuller.

The footballer, who hung up his boots last year, spent the night in the rainforest during the 12-day trip – “literally the middle of nowhere,” he said – accompanied only by his friends and two expert guides.

Beckham achieves one of his ambitions, which was to find somewhere in the world where he was not recognised, and has to explain football to one of the locals.

Beckham said: “It is the first time I have ever had to explain what soccer is to anybody apart from Victoria.”

Beckham, who travels around much of the country on a motorbike, described some of the experiences as “terrifying” and complained about the perils of having to sleep in a hammock.

He is filmed being left shaken by a brightly coloured frog which appears on top of the tent and by a snake which he worries is on his back and is seen slithering off into the jungle.

Palin, the Monty Python star and veteran of numerous BBC travelogues including one to Brazil, who interviewed Beckham at the programme launch on Monday, told him: “You are a wimp really. David Attenborough would have interviewed it [the frog].”

Beckham said: “I wish the snake had been bigger. It was bigger than it looks on TV.

“I am not a big frog fan. It was bright orange and I was told it was pretty dangerous. I was a little bit nervous about that.”

Before setting off on the journey Beckham is filmed being given advice by his wife Victoria.

She asks him: “What are you going to do with your hair, with all that humidity?”

Beckham replies, much to the approval of his wife: “I am going to wear a hat.”

He also related a tricky experience with one tribesman who was naked and covered entirely in black paint.

Despite his misgivings about the sleeping arrangements, Beckham said he wanted to do another travelogue “without a doubt”.

Whether it is on the BBC remains to be seen. The documentary, David Beckham: Into The Unknown was funded by its commercial arm, BBC Worldwide, BBC1 and Fuller’s XIX agency. It has been sold to around 15 countries so far.

Fuller is understood to have first approached the BBC last year with the idea for the documentary, in the run-up to the football World Cup this month.

Palin said the programme showed aspects of Beckham he had not seen before. While he said parts of it were “more David Beckham than David Attenborough”, he said it was well shot and praised the footballer as a “good observer”.

It will air on BBC1 next Monday and in Brazil on the same day.

Cheryl Cole should be scared: very, very scared. Scary Spice Mel B flew over to London from the States on Tuesday for a one–hour meeting with X Factor head honcho, Simon Cowell.

And Mel has virtually guaranteed herself the coveted judging job after successfully pitching for the gig.

Told she will be there to Spice-up (sorry) the panel, Simon sees her relationship with Chezza as key to the whole thing.

Rather than going down the cliched cat-fight road, Si, 54, is going for Girl Power – pitching the pair as friends, not enemies.

But that is not to say Mel won’t stand her ground when necessary…

We’re told: “Mel flew in specially to see Simon and they met in his office at Sony HQ. Melanie has been a front-runner for a long time now, mainly because she did such a good job as a guest judge a couple of years ago. She’s got the necessary experience, has a proven track record in the music industry and knows her stuff.

“They discussed what kind of ‘character’ Mel should play – she was adamant she didn’t want to be bad cop to Cheryl’s good. She told Simon she would be Scary Spice, and have attitude, but not be unnecessarily rude or provocative. Simon sees Mel and Cheryl working well together in a girl power kinda way. He thinks their chemistry will be good and really shake things up.Although Alesha is still in the frame, Mel and Simon have agreed personal terms and everyone is confident the deal will be announced shortly.”

The former Spice Girl, who turns 39 today, flew back home to LA yesterday to start filming the ninth series of America’s Got Talent.

She is due to finish making The Voice Kids in Australia next month.

So she will be free in time to begin filming on the new series of the hit Saturday night ITV show.

The singer has agreed to move back to the UK for the duration of filming so she’s available for all the press and promotional activities.

That ear-splitting crackle and pop wasn’t the blare of massive fireworks detonating. It was the sound of Spice Girls member, Melanie Chisholm, busting the bubbles of Spice fans everywhere.

With the Spice Girls’ 20th anniversary approaching in July, Melanie, better known to the world as Sporty Spice or simply Mel C., is voicing that she has no interest in recording any more material with her former band mates. Ever.

“I’ve been a solo artist longer than I was a Spice Girl,” Mel says. “I feel like this is my life now.”

And a grand life it is.

Mel’s doing just fine without the others. The girl’s got 6 solo full length releases to her name and has sold over 12 million albums around the world.

Mel’s 1999 debut, Northern Star, featuring the hit single “I Turn to You,” is actually the most successful solo effort to come from any of the Spice Girls.

Speaking of Mel’s Spice sisters, Victoria Beckham, labelled Posh Spice in her other life, shares Mel’s sentiments about regrouping and isn’t feeling hot about turning the lights back on the Spice Girls either.

That said, Mel wants her fans to know her reasons are personal and her disinterest is not based on resentment.

“I’m very proud to be part of the Spice Girls,” Mel confirms, just in case there were any doubts.

Mel has loads to be proud of, starting with being part of the most successful female group of all time in an era dominated by boy bands.

“Many industries, music being one, [are] heavily dominated by men. We went on to prove a lot of people wrong and be more successful than a lot of the boy bands, if not all of them,” Mel grins. “I hope that inspired other women to not take ‘no’ for an answer.”

Despite how gratifying it once was, the future of the Spice Girls looks dark, but there is still a small glimmer of hope for diehard fans of the girl group. All of this isn’t to say that public appearances or a string of reunion show dates are totally out of the question.

“We never ever thought it would happen the first time around,” Mel admits, referring to 2008’s The Return of the Spice Girls world tour. “So nobody knows what the future holds.”

The baby doll dresses are in a trunk in the attic and the hair is no longer clasped in bunches.

Yet, 38 year-old Emma Bunton still bubbles with the enthusiasm of a teenager.

These days, the energy isn’t focused on her old pop group and careering around the world but in her new career as a radio presenter, now fronting Heart FM’s Saturday show, (formerly Real Radio).

Yet, isn’t this a little less satisfying?

The lady who once performed the likes of Wanna Be to tens of of thousands of people at a time is now talking into a microphone for a living.

Radio is, of course, the theatre of the imagination, but on radio you don’t get to see the audience. And you certainly don’t hear the applause.

“When I took on the job at first I did wonder how I’d feel about it,” she reflects of her three years on the Heart breakfast show.

“But after doing it for a while you come to realise you get incredible feedback. Listeners text in all the time and I meet people in the street and contact our website so they mention things and often suggest topics.”

Emma says appearing on radio this is a very different form of performing.

“It is, but it’s also a world I love. I come into a studio and I play great music. We play all sorts of records with Heart, and I love the mix. And I love the challenge of relating to the audience.”

Pop stars often find it hard to reinvent themselves after enjoying global popularity. Gary Barlow’s recent TV documentary highlighted how hard to can be to be idolised one minute – and ignored the next.

“I knew when the Spice Girls ended I’d have to do new things. And it was scary. But my mum has always been a great role model.

“She took up karate at the age of 40 and now she’s a black belt and a teacher. She’s taught me anything is possible.

“I want to do so many different things in life, to take on new challenges.

While she has had Jamie Theakston as her radio wing man for three years, she’s now flying solo.

“When the red light goes on in the studio I do get that adrenalin rush and sometimes wonder what is going to come out of my mouth and it’s pretty scary.But that’s what I love about it. And if you don’t get nervous, what’s the point?”

She adds, grinning: “Why do a job if you don’t feel your being challenged?

“And here’s the thing. I started with the Spice Girls when I was 19, and that was really young. But hopefully I’ve got a whole new career, which is amazing.”

Does she like the music format? Has she played any Spice Girls records?

“Do you know what, I’ve played Spice Girls a couple of times. But I don’t think I’ve ever played any of my own.”

She adds, laughing: “We don’t like to be too self- indulgent, but now that you’ve mentioned it I’ll go and make that suggestion.”

Emma reveals she was always a budding radio presenter.

“As a kid I used to make up my own radio shows, recording in my bedroom and then go out in the street and ask people what they thought of Bananarama. I wasn’t a child performer in the sense I was always singing and performing to my family, but I did listen to Chris Evans and then go off and think I could become a radio DJ. So I’d make tapes with me playing music and then I’d be like: ‘Next up we have Salt ‘n’ Pepa with Push It!’ It’s amazing that now I’m doing it for real.”

Emma has had a successful solo career, releasing albums and presenting on television, working as a judge on the ITV skating show Dancing on Ice.

In 2012, she reprised her role as one of Edina Monsoon’s disgruntled clients in a revival of the BBC’s Absolutely Fabulous.

But will the Spice Girls be revived? It’s been rumoured they will tour with the Backstreet Boys.

“There is always talk of things happening, but that’s all it is. We love spending time together and the Olympics was amazing. How can you follow that? You never know, although for the moment there’s nothing in the pipeline.”

Emma’s life is pretty full.

“I’ve been working with Unicef for the past couple of years and there’s another project coming up.
But I am a mummy as well. My two boys (Tate and Beau – Emma’s partner is Damage pop star Jade Jones) are six and three. So I want to be with them as much as I possibly can. That’s my priority in life.”

Emma Bunton presents the Celebrate Saturday show from 5pm to 7pm on Heart FM.

LONDON, United Kingdom — Victoria Beckham’s private office in the London headquarters of her fledgling fashion brand, just south of the river Thames in Battersea, is a calm oasis of earthy hues and understated designer furniture. But just outside her door, spread across two floors and two separate, fully-staffed ateliers — complete with in-house patternmakers, sewers and cutters — is a buzzing office with more than 100 people working across design, product development, sales, marketing, operations and finance.

It’s not at all fancy. There are piles of boxes everywhere and mismatched desks are crammed together in every which way. Phones are ringing off the hook and couriers are trailing in and out, with delivery after delivery. A fabric meeting is taking place in the reception area as all the other meeting spaces seem to be fully occupied.

“I’ve only actually just had an office that has windows. I was downstairs in the cupboard!” Ms Beckham jokes as she shows me around the office. “There are no airs and graces here. Nobody treats me as if I’m a famous person. It is what it is.” The crowded workspace has all the signs of a rapidly growing young fashion company.

The Victoria Beckham business turned over a respectable £30 million in sales (about $50 million) in 2013, an impressive 91 percent increase on the year prior, according to figures provided by the company.

But critically, Beckham has also managed to create a brand profile that is significantly larger than the current scale of her business. recently, she has been everywhere. In December, Beckham guest-edited edgy Vogue Paris and appeared on two smouldering cover spreads with her football star husband David. (In total, Beckham has appeared on the cover of nine different international editions of Vogue, with the notable exception of the American edition.) Then there were two simultaneous Vanity Fair covers in Italy and Spain in January, the March cover of Allure in the United States, and a ubiquitous collaboration with Skype, documenting her personal fashion journey. How many other designers can regularly land cover stories on fashion magazines around the world?

“It’s a double-edged sword really,” says Beckham, when asked what role her fame has played in the success of her business. “The most valuable part of being famous is that you have a voice and people will listen. I mean I can get a lot of attention. I don’t have to rely on advertising campaigns,” she admits. “But I don’t like to use that card very often. I like to keep my head down, work hard, focus on what I’m doing business-wise. I like to try and control how much I’m seen. I don’t want to go out and be photographed every day, you know.”

“So, I think that as much as one might say, ‘it has helped,’ I’m not so sure,” she says, “I’ve had to overcome lots of preconceptions, and that’s okay.”

Indeed, it would be too simplistic to credit Victoria Beckham’s phenomenal rise in fashion to the power of her celebrity alone. For years, Beckham actively courted the fashion industry, making red carpet appearances in high-end designer clothing and gaining global media attention on both sides of the Atlantic, simply by going about her day-to-day life.

But she was shunned. Insiders remember a time when brands would call her representatives to ask that she please not wear their clothes, even if she had bought them herself. They did not want to be associated with the perky breasts, pouty poses and over-dyed blonde bob that had come to define her style in the post-Spice Girls days.
