Emma Bunton unaware of pregnancy while on dance show

Emma Bunton showed no signs of morning sickness during her stint on the BBC1 show Strictly Come Dancing. Her dance partner, Darren Bennett, revealed that Baby Spice endured weeks of strenuous rehearsals and workouts and made it all the way to the semi-finals without realizing she was in her first trimester of pregnancy.

We didn’t know Emma was pregnant until she announced it after the show had finished. It is very physically demanding doing the rehearsals and the shows but it must have been even more so for Emma. She did feel fatigued but she put that down to the amount of physical work and she still carried on and did very well.

Emma, 31, certainly had her work cut out for her. Rehearsals lasted up to six hours a day and she had to learn four dances in a week one time. But she still made it through and impressed her on-screen partner as well with her dance work ethic. Darren also joked about the paternity of the baby since Emma spent so much time on the dance floor.

If Emma’s baby comes out dancing I’ll be asking some questions! The baby is nothing to do with me!

Emma is expecting her first child this summer with her boyfriend of eight years, singer Jade Jones.
