Watson - "I wanted to be Emma Bunton"

The Bling Ring star Emma Watson has revealed that she wanted to be Emma Bunton from the Spice Girls when she was growing up.

The 23-year-old actress explained that Bunton was her favourite member of the '90s pop group.

Speaking on Daybreak, Watson said: "It was when I was seven or eight. I wanted to be Emma Bunton. She was so, so cute.

"I had a friend called Ellie and we would fight because she had blonde hair.

"So she thought she could get to be Emma and I said my name was Emma. This went on for months."

The Bling Ring is in cinemas now - read our review here.
