Emma Bunton pranks airport workers for Red Nose Day skit

The former Spice Girls star dressed up as a British Airways staffer and helped customers check in for flights with the airline.

Emma Bunton pranked travellers at London’s Heathrow Airport on Wednesday (15Mar17) as part of a Red Nose Day Comic Relief skit.

The former Spice Girls star dressed up as a British Airways staffer and helped customers check in for flights with the airline. Much to the surprise of the passengers, the 41-year-old then broke into song and incorporated dance moves into the process.

She sang portions of memorable Spice Girl hits, including 2 Become 1, Spice Up Your Life, and Wannabe.

Video of Emma's bizarre behaviour was posted online by charity officials.

Comic Relief's Red Nose Day is part of a global campaign encouraging participants to find creative and humorous ways to raise money for children living in poverty.

Additional airport prank clips, featuring Olympian Tom Daley and comedian and author David Walliams, have also been released ahead of Red Nose Day, which this year falls on 24 March (17) in the U.K.

A telethon marking the charity day will also feature Richard Curtis' short Love Actually sequel, featuring the likes of Liam Neeson, Kate Moss, Hugh Grant, and Martin Freeman.

Hugh reprises his role as Prime Minister David for the follow-up, with his dance moves to Girls Aloud's Jump in the original film becoming an iconic moment in movie history. In a recent interview, Martine McCutcheon, who plays the politician's love interest Natalie, promised fans they will once again get to see Hugh strutting his stuff, after Richard managed to convince him to take part in another dance scene for the skit.

“(The character of Prime Minister David) does some dancing again but Hugh was dreading it," Martine laughed to the TV Times.

It was previously revealed that David and Natalie are married in the Love Actually mini sequel, with Martine adding she was more than happy to team up with Hugh on screen again.

"I was just really excited to work with Hugh again because we've become friends, we've stayed in touch. He has given me advice and we still text each other," she smiled.
