Emma Bunton of the Spice Girls had injured her ankle, sending the band to pull out of a TV special which is part of the group's reunion schedule. The 'Baby Spice' twisted the ankle while performing on-stage on the last show at Las Vegas' Mandalay Bay Events Center.
They were slated to appear on BBC's Strictly Come Dancing on Saturday, December 15 to mark the beginning of the U.K. leg of their tour. The performance at London's O2 which is scheduled at the same night is still in doubt although Bunton said yesterday, "I'm sure to make a speedy recovery, so see you all at The O2 arena!".
An insider meanwhile, is giving a clue to the condition saying, "It's too soon to say if Emma will be fit enough to join the other four girls on Saturday. She will see a doctor tomorrow, who will assess the damage." Emma, who is in crutches, is seeing David Beckham's physiotherapist while keeping her "fingers crossed".
A press release meanwhile, reported that a spokesperson for the stars confirms that the injury is "not too serious" and that Bunton "will be well" for the Saturday's show.
In 1997 Bunton sustained the same injury after falling during a Turkish TV show while wearing huge platform.
