    Disagree with the above. French can only be spoken in France and France's colonies (scattered around Africa mainly, La Reunion, Laos). Spanish, aside from being easier, gives you access to more or less the entire South American and Central American continent, not to mention Spain. Central and South America are also major developing economies so Spanish would be very beneficial in something like business, law, finance, etc.

    Réunion isn't a former colony, it is part of France.

    Spanish has more global speakers, but that does not mean it is more important/useful for someone living in the UK. We don't do much business with Hispanophone countries, but France (and Belgium) are some of our most important trading partners. French is one of the three main languages of the EU, and is one of the two working languages of the UN. Put simply, there are a lot more job opportunities for French speakers in the UK than Spanish.
