Former Spice Girl Emma Bunton has signed a deal with Simon Fuller, the manager dumped by the girlband four years ago.

Fuller was dropped in 1997 when the group decided to manage themselves.

He is credited with the group's early success with number ones hits that included 'Wannabe' and 'Spice Up Your Life'.

Bunton recently split from the manager of her solo career. She also left record label Virgin, despite scoring a number one hit less than a year ago with 'What Took You So Long?'.
