Emma Bunton married her fiance of 15 years, Jade Jones in a private ceremony, and her Spice Girl bandmates have rushed to congratulate her

Former Spice Girl, Emma Bunton, 45, has married long-time fiance, Jade Jones, 42, in a private ceremony with just a handful of guests.

The couple were engaged for 15 years, and together for 23 after they began dating in 1998. They got engaged in 2006 and opted for a lowkey ceremony for their wedding.

Emma shares two children with Jade, Beau 13, and Tate 10. She recently opened up on her worries that she could not have a third child after entering perimenopause (opens in new tab) and battling with endometriosis. (opens in new tab)

Spice Girl fans will have been disappointed not to see a mini-reunion of the iconic girl band at the wedding, but we were treated to a virtual one on Instagram.
