Former Spice Girl Emma Bunton saw plenty of the planet in her globe-trotting pop star days – but her current travels tend to centre around her little boys Beau and Tate. She talks to Tamara Hinson about Florida, Disney – and the joys of a few days in Clacton.

Where is your next trip?

Disneyland Paris. It’s all about my two boys – Beau, six, and Tate, three – these days.

Most memorable travel destination?

My fiance Jade Jones, my son Beau and I went to visit close friends in Hong Kong – it was incredible. 

What was it like? 

Cosmopolitan and busy.

Our friends took us to all the secret places that tourists don’t know about — like delicious restaurants and secluded beaches.

Recommend three things to do there…

Shopping, seeing the pandas, a harbour boat ride while eating a Chinese banquet.
