Pop singer Emma Bunton has spoken of her admiration for her former SPICE GIRL bandmate Victoria Beckham's solo career.

The LATELY singer feels sorry for her friend because the public and media are so tough on her efforts to become a credible solo artist.

Emma says, "I'm impressed by what she's doing, she's giving it 100 per cent and I think people should give her credit for that - she loves doing it, and I'm just so pleased she's gone for it.

"I heard both of her tracks (THIS GROOVE/LET YOUR HEAD GO) and loved the videos to both of them. I woke up with one of them in my head the other day. That's always a good omen."
