Mother-of-two Emma said: "As a mum, getting to voice a character in my sons' favourite show, The Lion Guard, was really moving, especially as I am always telling the pair of them to work together as a team despite them being so different, just like Kion and his friends.

"My character Muhimu is feisty and strong, she definitely has plenty of girl power!"

Emma, 40, continued: "We are all looking forward to sitting down to watch the episode on Disney Junior."

The Lion Guard airs on Disney Junior on Wednesdays at 5.30pm. From September, the show will air daily at 5pm.
Emma Bunton's episode of The Lion Guard airs on October 3 at 5pm.
