EMMA Bunton cried live on air today as she spoke to co-host Jamie Theakston during his epic charity marathon.
The 47-year-old is walking seven marathons in seven days for Global’s Make Some Noise, and had the former Spice Girl in tears as he spoke about the disadvantaged families he’s raising money for.

Jamie embarked on his 182.7 mile walk from Cardiff to London last week, to raise money for deprived children across the UK.
Calling Emma in the Heart FM studio from his fifth marathon, the presenter was unable to hold back his tears as he spoke about the people who have joined him for parts of the walk.
He said: “It’s easy to get a bit blasé when you’re walking with mums who, you know, have lost their kid or…” before breaking down.
Emma was then heard groaning herself from the studio as Jamie continued: “There was a girl yesterday who was in a chair and she said she didn’t have a friends, because she couldn’t get out of the house and she couldn’t go to school.

“She said she wanted to come on the walk because I was a superstar. But she’s the real superstar.”
Emma and her co-host Jason King were left in tears by the story, and proceeded to praise Jamie for embarking on such an amazing feat.
Jason said: “Jeez Jamie man, you’re making us go here.
“If you’ve just tuned in, Jamie is doing seven marathons in seven days. He’s on marathon five and Jamie dude, you’re doing the most amazing thing.”

Wiping away his tears, Jamie then added: “No, the people who are listening are doing an amazing thing by donating, as you’re helping these kids.”
It was also announced this morning that singer Olly Murs will be joining the host for the last leg of the walk on Friday, which runs from Leicester Square up to Buckingham Palace.
Jamie has been walking for up to 10 hours and burning over 3,000 calories each day in aid of the charity, which supports children living with illness, disability and lack of opportunity.
