Emma Is Official Children In Need Single 2006

Former Spice Girl Emma Bunton is to record a version of Petula Clark's 1960s hit Downtown as this year's official Children In Need single.

"I've always loved Downtown as a song and I'm really looking forward to putting my own stamp on it," she said.

The singer is currently appearing in BBC One's Strictly Come Dancing and said she had asked her colleagues on the show to join her in the video.
The single is out on 13 November, with Children in Need night on 17 November.

"The track's good fun and one everyone will know," said 30-year-old Bunton.

"The video should be a good laugh - I've asked all the Strictly guys to come along if they have time and show off all the hard work we've been doing and hopefully there will be a few other surprises in store too."

Children in Need last year raised £33m for charity.

  1. oooh...some guest Spice appearances maybe :p

  2. OMG!!! That's amazing. This is wicked, I love Emma and I'm sure whe'll produce an amazing tune. I can't wait for the video!!

  3. I doubt we'll get any Spice Girls in the video, just lots of Strictly Come Dancing contestants.

    The song will be quite fitting, following on from Emma's "Free Me" 60's feel album.
