Emma Bunton thinks it is "brilliant" her former school friend Kellie Bright has filmed an "EastEnders" episode dressed up as her.

The soap star's alter-ego donned a pink dress to transform into the Spice Girls singer - who she attended the Sylvia Young Theatre School with - this week when she, Danny Dyer (Mick Carter), Linda Henry (Shirley Carter) and Luisa Bradshaw-White (Tina Carter) shot an ep while dressed as the girl group.

Speaking on "Lorraine", Emma said: "The funny thing is, Kellie Bright, I went to school with her.

"She text me going, "Have you seen this?" This is a day at work for me.

"Isn't that brilliant. It's so good."

The Spice Girls announced a comeback tour last year, and Kellie took to Twitter at the time to compliment her 43-year-old friend.

She tweeted: "My beautiful @EmmaBunton you look sooooooo hot!!! Hope I get to see you all in action next year (sic)"

Kellie - who also went to Sylvia Young with Luisa and "Bodyguard" actress Keeley Hawes - previously revealed she turned to Emma for advice ahead of taking part in "Strictly Come Dancing".

She said: "I talked to Emma Bunton about taking part in "Strictly".

"She's a really good friend of mine and was in the "Strictly" class of 2006, when she came third. Emma said it was amazing and one of the best things she's ever done.

"There are lots of people at EastEnders who've also taken part and they all say how much they loved it. I've not heard one person say a bad thing about it."
