Solo Spice: Emma Bunton - Downtown

This was Emma's contribution to Children In Need. Her cover of this Petula Clark classic (which is available on her latest album Life In Mono) was the official song for the charity in 2006. The video may be the campiest, cheesiest, and cheapest I've seen her do to date but I do think that she does the song justice.

She was in the middle of competing on Strictly Come Dancing during the making of this video and as such she included many of the contestants, their dance partners, and her own dance partner Darren Bennett as the barrage of characters who take over the hotel room. Darren is the one dancing with Emma when she changes her maid outfit to the little babydoll dress.

Downtown reached # 3 in the UK charts.
