Emma Bunton has said she has no idea how she would have coped with social media when she was a Spice Girl.

The singer, formerly known as 'Baby Spice', admits she enjoyed some privacy while in the world-famous band.

The 44-year-old told the Honestly podcast with Clemmie Telford: "I was just 19 when it (the band) started and I don't know how I would have dealt with the social media and the pictures back then.

"I remember the first time I was out with friends in a club and I saw someone with a camera phone and they took a picture of me.

"I thought 'Oh my goodness, that’s it now, that’s privacy done and there’s no boundaries’.

"That frightened me."

Bunton added: "In the celebrity world, of course you’re out there.

"But there’s those moments where you’d like to have time with your friends and not have someone being intrusive, but that went in that moment."

Bunton said it was strange to see fans filming gigs on their phones.

"Our first (Spice Girls) tour was incredible," she said. "I remember looking out to the audience and seeing faces.

"Now when you do a tour you just see phones. I personally really hope that you're also taking this in."

Mel B recently said the Spice Girls are eager to get back on the road for more shows when it's safe to do so and admits the group "are all raring to go".
