London: Former Spice girl Emma Bunton was left deflated on her way to host a live TV talent contest Sunday when her car suffered a flat tyre on the motorway.

Bunton presents the Glee-inspired talent show "Don`t Stop Believing" on British network Five, alongside judges Anastacia and British boyband star Duncan James. In her excitement, she tweeted to fans on her drive to the studio here that she was all ready to go, writing: "Oh my way to the Final of `Don`t Stop Believing`!! Dress? Shoes? Can`t wait! Live, channel 5 at 5.30!"

But her mood soon soured when she hit the road, and her car tyre went down.

"Got a flat tyre on the M25 (highway), I don`t have much luck with cars," she posted.
