Former SPICE GIRL Emma Bunton feels under pressure to remain slim after embarking on a career as a solo artist.

The British beauty found she could get away with a more voluptuous figure when she was a member of the WANNABE girl group.

But since pursuing solo success, Bunton has promptly altered her diet and taken up a more effective exercise regime.

She says, "I've been quite careful, I must admit. I think obviously being with the girls, the focus was totally on you.

"But now being a solo artist, there's a little bit more pressure and I do work out a little bit more and try to eat a bit healthier."
