'Dancing on Ice' judge Emma Bunton has said that she is still close to the other Spice Girls.

Speaking to STV, the singer, who is pregnant with her second child, said that she loves chatting to the other girls about their children.

Bunton said of sharing her engagement news with the girls: "Because we're all so busy we don't get to see as much of each other as we'd like but when something like this happens the bond we have shines through."

"It's like a sisterly relationship and that will always be there."

"In fact Scarlet [Mel C's daughter] and Cruz [Victoria and David Beckham's son] have birthdays in a few days so it's a great excuse to get together."

"Because Victoria and I are pregnant we talked about that for a bit then I said, 'I do have some other exciting news' and I held up my ring. They jumped out of their seats and hugged and kissed us."
